I use the Sessions Buddy Chrome extension to compartmentalize interesting links to different domains of interest.
Today, I’ve got a notification from Chrome saying that I should reinstall it (the automatic update failed). I did reinstall Chrome in the past, after backing up my Session Buddy data, and was happy to see that reinstalling Chrome actually saved my sessions data. So, I thought, I need not worry now.
I’ve re-installed Chrome and everything went fine. Sessions were there. Except that it still told me that my Chrome version is old.
I’ve purged Chrome from my computer, removed
~/.configs/google-chrome. Then reinstalled again. Synced with my google account. Now my Chrome is updated, but, of course, all my Session Buddy data is gone. On top of that, another
google-chrome folder has been created.
In a desperate hope to restore this data, I have installed
PhotoRecand it has revealed hundreds of thousands of files.
- How can I identify which data belongs to Session Buddy?
- Has anyone managed to restore the data this way?
- Is there any other way to restore my sessions?
