A lists of some more:
I wanted to mention that the search engines backup, when stored as note, can potentially slow down quick commands input to a crawl. It’s a massive amount of text, especially if you have removed and added a lot of entries. Last I checked my backup had over 120k characters. This happens because removed engines are kept in storage by Vivaldi. If you are careful, you can edit the backup yourself and delete removed engines. Alternatively you can store it outside of Vivaldi, or deactivate the notes search type in vivaldi://settings/qc/.
I find that Sync is sufficient, but just to be sure, I export my bookmarks from time to time. Backing up daily seems like overkill to me, but everyone has different workflows.
As a general rule I don't like automated backups. Sometimes I might add no bookmarks for weeks, other times I might add several with an hour. Manual backups are OK as long as they only take a couple of clicks. One can assign a shortcut to Export Bookmarks.
@TyrianMollusk said in Keep multiple backups of sessions / bookmarks / notes / ...:
I found this old thread and agree with the topic. However, I think the responses are irresponsible.
I have to agree
Since the requested feature does not currently exist, the only thing we can do is offer possible workarounds to protect data.
I lost all of my bookmarks and settings recently while testing a bug reported by a user. I recovered most if it easily using sync. The settings I had to fix manually. Such problems can be expected to happen in Beta software, and even in so-called Stable software sometimes.
If users do know about the issues, as the OP does, then the onus is on them to backup their data. Even if they are unaware of such issues they should backup their data, as computers get stolen, hard drives fail, etc.
It is not irresponsible to warn users to make backups.
@quhno I don't know how to go to cookies. I tried chrome://settings/cookies and
chrome://settings/Cookies. I went through the regular settings menu to see all my cookies and it came up empty even though I have all cookies allowed.

You should go to chrome://settings/passwords (from address field or QC).
@Alexs said in Profil zurücksetzen - aber dann?:
Mit geschlossenen Browser die Lesezeichen-Datei Preferences vom alten in das neue Profil kopiert.
Ich meinte die Datei Bookmarks, nicht Preferences, so ein Irrtum kann bei soviel Text aber schon passieren. 😉

How to Backup and Restore Vivaldi Profile
As GwenDragon commented on that article, it will not work for Passwords and Extensions.
Also, the profile may be in a different folder; use Vivaldi menu Help/About to identify the correct path.
