Can you make sure you’ve no “accidentally” created a new profile? Circle icon at upper right.

Also, your Brave is outdated. Latest version is 1.9.x.

Hi, @m_zaki. @eljuno may be headed this way, but you can also check for profiles in Explorer. Here are a couple of related posts that should be helpful with the caveat that before you try any of the things described, you should create backup copies of whatever profile folders are there. Bear in mind that the file structures are essentially the same across all platforms with slight path differences, so posts showing macOS can still be useful to Windows/Linux folks and vice versa.

i found the folder in this direction AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\

but after doing all this steps i still not able to get the data back

Looks like the Windows path in the linked posts was incomplete.

The Brave Browser User Data folder holds your profile folders (Default, Profile 1, Profile 2, etc,) and in Windows 10 is at
C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\
sometimes shorthanded as
~\%AppData%\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\"User Data"\

AppData is ordinarily hidden. To see it in Explorer, click the View tab of the window you’re using and check the Hidden items checkbox
