Brave crashes at startup - how to backup passwords and bookmarks

I saw the update to .118 and looked for sync. Wasn’t there, so I activated it via flags. Did so and now Brave starts and immediately closes.

I am fine to reinstall it, but how do I save my bookmarks and passwords?
Since sync wasnt working, I have not other device with the backups.

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Brave
  2. Closes immediately without

Expected result: It should open normally and stay open

Brave Version( check About Brave): [1.3.118]

Hi @Cheechako, welcome to Community!

If you navigate to C:\Users\[Your User Name]\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data, you should see a folder called Default. This folder will contain your bookmarks, extensions, etc…
After you re-install Brave you can then copy the contents from your OLD Default folder to the NEW Default folder.
This is for you main Brave profile. If you have multiple profiles you’ll have to copy over the ones called Profile X , x being some number depending on how many profiles you made/deleted.
