opera file system
contacts and bookmarks location. computer going down.

 1:32 pm on Jul 17, 2002 (gmt 0)

My system at work is starting to do some very strage things, though to be honest with you its the longest i have managed to keep an MS OS going, about 1 year in all. Its never quite been right from the start, its been through a few virus attacks, and i am going to kill it. And rebuild.


Does anyone know where the contacts and the bookmarks are located file wise, so that i can copy them and drop them into the new system ?

I've managed to lose this copy of Opera's licence number, any idea's, or should i just contact opera ?

assuming you haven't changed the settings

\program Files\Opera\opera5.adr is thre bookmarks (even for opera 6)

And the contacts: \program Files\Opera\Contacts.adr

Though I am certain you have already discovered that! ;)

You may notice .bak versions of the two (Contacts.adr.bak and Opera5.adr.bak) as well. Since v.6.04 Opera includes a backup function for these two files to prevent accidental loss.

For more information read How do I back up my Opera files? [opera.com]

Use Opera's license lookup form [opera.com], to get your license mailed to your e-mail address. :)
