How do I back up my brave?


#1

I’m gonna reset my laptop, so I want to back up my browsing data, bookmarks, and history. I want to know if there’s a way to do this?

What’s your OS? You can back up your Brave profile.

I’m on windows 10. how?

Hi @PhoenixWaffle

Go to “%userprofile%\AppData\Local” and rename the “brave” folder. (this contains the application)
Go to “%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming” and rename the “brave” folder. (this contains your profile data - bookmarks, history, etc)
Save these folders somewhere they won’t get destroyed when you reset your laptop.

cc @sriram to make sure I’m not missing any extra steps on Windows.

Thanks,
Lauren

You can just copy the brave folder from %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming and then rest machine. After reinstalling the browser, delete the folder from %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming and copy back the folder you had backed up before and you should be all set to reuse the profile.
