Restoring from Backup


I had to reinstall Brave on a computer after recovering from a crash. I’ve installed the latest version (1.46.153).

I’m running Windows 10 x64 22H2.

Before I did, I backed up the the whole BraveSoftware folder in %localappdata%, and I’ve made sure the Default folder was included.

Upon re-install the latest version of Brave, and ensuring it isn’t opened, I copied the Default folder from the backup to the original location. Then when I start Brave it crashes twice before opening, but as if was freshly installed, nothing had been transferred.

I’ve got a couple of DMP files from the CrashPad folder. So I can provide these if needed.

I would really appreciate any assistance.

Hello there @SPNZ thanks for your report and please accept my apologies for this issue.

Could you please go to brave://crashes and provide me with the Crash ID from the recent crashes? Settings --> Privacy/Security --> Automatically send diagnostic reports

Be waiting for your response.
