Open Windows Explorer and navigate to this location:. C:Users%USERNAME%AppDataLocalGoogleChrome. Where%USERNAME% = Your Username. If your username is ' Admin', then you have to navigate to this path: ' C:UsersAdminAppDataLocalGoogleChrome')2.
Right click at User Data folder and from the menu choose the ' Restore previous versions' option. Note: If the ' Restore previous versions ' option is unavailable, then –unfortunately- the system protection (restore) feature is disabled on your system. I am having an issue. It almost works, I can find the older versions, but when I hit restore, then it says that the file name is too long for it the action to be performed. However, then when I try to copy it someplace else then it either can't copy. Or it says the file is in use (even though chrome is closed) and it won't let it restore.
Then when that dialog is skipped, and it copies 'user data' to a different location then it later says there are no previous versions to restore. I am not sure how to work around this issue.Lakonst2013Mar 21, 2017 @11:11:21. I hope this explains my problem better: I recently replaced a Mac Desktop with a newer One.
I was told by apple that all my information was transferred to the new computer. However, I use Google Chrome and when I open my bookmarks page and try to login to various websites, my passwords are blank. Thus, I have to type all of them in again. I did look at sync for getting my passwords-didn't work.
Called Google for support, but they refused to assist me. Gee, a company of that magnitude should be able to solve problems!!! But they don't. So, I welcome any assistance.
Trust I made my question clear. Thank you for any responses!.Lakonst2013May 16, 2017 @10:48:36. When attempting the restore previous version steps, An error pops up'Source Path Too Long'Details:(The source file name(s) are larger than is supported by the file system. Try moving to a location which has a shorter path name, or try renaming to shorter name(s) before attempting this operation)???To rename is impossible as Properties for that 'Chrome' folder are listed as //localhost/c$/@GMT-2017.6.27-02.51.01/Users/Admin/AppData/Local/Google How would I rename that?.Lakonst2013Jul 01, 2017 @11:37:07. I just went through this and your guide was extremely helpful! Although I might add that it fell short in the sense that while the logins are restored, the user profile is instantly logged out (passwords are also not synced across all of your devices).
Furthermore, as soon as you log back into your chrome/google account, the local logins are removed and no longer work.Sooooo.I found a workaround for getting the combinations back into your google account. After restoring your chrome Appdata folder but BEFORE logging back into your Chrome account, download Firefox. At installation press yes to import all settings from Chrome and verify that a few of your logins are working. If so, return to Chrome and navigate to 'Import Bookmarks and Settings' and select Firefox in the dropdown.
Now your logins are available on your account and synced across all devices!!.MauriceAug 29, 2017 @04:33:27. Hello,Thank you so much for posting this. If I go to the only password there is one for Vimeo, which I just created earlier in the day. I went to the user data folder, did a right click, and since the only recovery file was one that was about a week old (which is fine, because I lost them all just a couple of days ago), and selected, 'Restore to previous versions'.
Since I only had one, like I said, I selected that one. I was signed out of google at the time. It did it's thing, I watched the green progress bar go up until it was done. Then I opened Google, and went to 'Settings' 'Advanced' and to passwords and the only one there was that aforementioned 'Vimeo' one I had created earlier. I'm really lost without all these passwords and I'm desperate to get it going. I tried the 'iSunshare' program to recover them but it did nothing at all.
Please, in the name of everything holy (which seems to getting harder and harder every day) HELP!Thank you.Lakonst2013Mar 30, 2018 @10:18:36. Victor: Unfortunately when you login back to your Google account the local saved login data (usernames and passwords) are removed automatically. So try the following procedure:1.
Log out from your account in Chrome. 2.Restore the the previous version of 'User Data' folder 3. Open Chrome and then check if the login data are there.4. If your data are there, then install Firefox 5. In Firefox import Bookmarks and Settings from Chrome.
Then see if your login data are working in Firefox too. If they are working, open Chrome and login to your Chrome account again. Finally in Chrome import Bookmark and settings back from Firefox.AlexMay 05, 2018 @15:42:11.
I don't normally sign up to leave a comment but in this case, I have to say, thank you, you're a life saver! Hundreds of passwords saved over the years, and all now recovered.It didn't work at first, as opening chrome just reset everything. However, deleting the account from Chrome/ un-syncing it and then restoring and opening up Chrome that way, did help. I followed this part;Lakonst2013Mar 30, 2018 @ 10:18:36Victor: Unfortunately when you login back to your Google account the local saved login data (usernames and passwords) are removed automatically.

Hi, thanks for your article. I went through the steps after deleting the passwords from my chrome phone account without realising it would also delete them from my desktop account. Now I've lost access to my bitcoin password. And unfortunately there are no previous versions when I check on user data so I presume I didn't have the restore feature activated. I do have an old laptop that had the password stored on its version of chrome and I'm just wondering if I may be able to get the data from there? I presume if I sign in to chrome on that laptop then it will sync and delete all the data?.Lakonst2013Nov 19, 2018 @11:28:30.
How To Recover Deleted Google Chrome History
I did not see the restore function so unfortunately it did not work for me. Is there a way to enable this function?I got a new drive with a backup from my previous computer.
I am really having hard time to retrieve information that I had previously in Google. I did syncing but I seem to have only bookmarks.
Additionally one of my Gmail accounts is asking for passphrase. How do I get around the passphrase?It must be some easy way to get all the info back! It is so frustrating.Lakonst2013May 10, 2019 @10:48:10.
