According to this : I can't start up my Brave Browser! - #4 by Mattches

brave.exe --user-data-dir=C:\Users[your user name]\Desktop\test

makes Brave browser awake back.

Profile folder get issued with the new version.
I redo my profile and get default folder back.
That’s works now !

The team has released a fix for this issue that is now available in the latest update — please update Brave to version 1.57.49 and launch your main/default profile and ensure that the browser does not crash.

Thank you
