Description of the issue: I have a lot of unique browser profiles, historically when reinstalling Windows 10 I would just copy over the entire “C:\Users\usernameHere\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser” directory and go on my way but this time it’s a bit different. The directory in Windows 10 doesn’t play well with the structure of the Linux(specifically Ubuntu) directory and isn’t as simple as a drag and drop.
Is there any way users can perform this migration without the headache of either recreating a quintillion profiles with their unique settings and or creating new sync chains for each?
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Close browser(s)
- Attempt to migrate Windows 10 Brave browser profiles/directory to an Ubuntu based distribution
Expected result: I guess I wasn’t really expecting much
Brave Version (Linux): Version 1.26.74 Chromium: 91.0.4472.124 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Brave Version (Windows 10): Version 1.26.74 Chromium: 91.0.4472.124 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Any help/ideas are appreciated. If such a migration isn’t possible, maybe I could raise a feature request but I don’t really know if it’s reasonable to raise such a niche requirement.
