Where are the user data files stored? Not under /users. Not under /program files (x86)/bravesoftware.
For browser data, you can find it under:
macOS: /Users/[You]/Library/Application Support/BraveSoftware/
Windows: AppData/Local/ OR AppData/Roaming/
Where is appdata folder?
Start and type
%appdata% into the search – the folder should come up in results.
So when you look under your user name, AppData folder is hidden. When you do the %appdata% search, the folder appears. What genius had that idea? Thanks for your help.
Which is it: Local or Roaming?
I believe both directories are used – can I ask what you’re trying to access them for?
Still trying to access my bookmarks.
So got them. To recap/for you to help others:
I was using Dev. Suddenly it stopped appearing (it would load; but stay minimized; I’d click maximize and nothing; I reinstalled and the same thing.)
So I installed Brave but didn’t have my bookmarks. File manager doesn’t show/hides the AppData folder. But %appdata% search reveals it.
The “Bookmarks” file is in: AppData/Local/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser-Dev/User Data/Default/
You can simply copy from there and past it in:
and you have your bookmarks from Dev transferred over to Brave.
