Lost my history (and tabs) when updating: Any way to try to recover?

Description of the issue:
I updated Brave, via update & relaunch, while I had 20 or so tabs open (yes, I know…unwise). Brave appeared to download and update, but didn’t relaunch. When I then tried to start Brave manually, it started, I briefly saw a browser window and the message saying “Brave didn’t shut down correctly, would you like to restore…,” and then it immediately crashed. I rebooted my machine in the blind hope it’d fix it, but it didn’t. So, I decided to simply download Brave, install it, and try running it. It worked in getting Brave to run, and it still asked me if I wanted to restore my lost tabs, but nothing was restored and I had no recent history. Is there anything I can try to recover the recent history/tabs?

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
I’m not so sure I can repro it. The steps are outlined above.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Described above.

Expected result:
I would not lose my recent history.

Reproduces how often:

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):
macOS Catalina (10.15.3 (19D76))
Brave [Version 1.4.95 Chromium: 80.0.3987.122 (Official Build) (64-bit)]
The previous version of Brave I was using before I updated was the most recent prior to this one.

Additional Information:
I thought sync might help, but prior to this, I noticed sync wasn’t working well, and I don’t even see sync int he latest version (unless it moved and I simply didn’t find it yet).
