Hi @MAXO,
If you’re looking to move from Brave on one computer to another, I’d recommended backing up your entire Brave profile.
The path should look something like this:
C:\Users\[Your User Name]\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\Default for windows
or ~/Library/Application Support/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser\Default for mac,
That Default folder contains all you info. If you’re using multiple profiles, you’ll also see a folder called Profile 1 . Profile 1 is actually your second profile, if you have a third profile it will be called Profile 2 . If you have deleted profiles in the past, those numbers may be different.
Be sure to store your Default folder somewhere safe (and any additional profiles you have) - you can then copy that Default folder into a new installation of Brave.
But keep in mind this method is not perfect and could result in some issues.

Thank you so much, really helped

one more question. Can you please specify how to copy Default folder into new installation?

copy the default profile from the mention location to the same location after reinstalling your windows and brave

hope that help and have a nice day :slight_smile:

Doesn’t work for some reason but thanks anyway

@MAXO
Empty the new Default folder and then copy the contents from the old Default folder into the new.
