Minimal backup



  • Hi, Vivaldi is my very first contact with a chrom* family's browser. Yesterday I realized the /profile folder of my standalone installation is > 100MB. :ohmy: Q: Is it really required to backup the entire[i] /profile[/i] to restore my config at any time later? I have hoped that here are at least some sub-structures that could be easily skipped from backup, for example - [i]/profile/Default/Cache[/i] - [i]/profile/Default/Storage[/i] - [i][color=#4444ff]/something/more[/color][/i]? Any help/feedback is appreciated. someone Btw, this is my little Opera installers history: [code]ow32dede511.exe ow32enen600.exe ow32enen751.exe ow32enen754u2.exe ow32enen851.exe Opera_964_classic_Setup.exe Opera_1000_classic_Setup.exe Opera_1164_int_Setup.exe Opera_1215_int_Setup.exe[/code] I'm really, really happy that the genuine Opera mindset now is about to rise again! :woohoo:

    Don't forget clean your cache from vivaldi://history (Clear browsing data…)



  • Hi anephew,

    @anephew:

    Don't forget clean your cache from vivaldi://history (Clear browsing data…)

    I would like to keep my history in my working Vivaldi instance but exclude it from my backups only. So the question rather is in what files the history gets saved.

  • Well,

    here's my current list of exclusions, based on my assumption skipping those items doesn't raise any security issues. :whistle:

    Folders (robocopy /XD)
    [ul]

    • V_HOME\Profile\Default\DefCache
    • V_HOME\Profile\Default\GPUCache
    • V_HOME\Profile\Default\Media Cache
    • V_HOME\Profile\Default\Storage
      [/ul]

    Files(robocopy /XF)
    [ul]

    • V_HOME\Profile\Safe Browsing Bloom
    • V_HOME\Profile\Default\Top Sites
      [/ul]
