Iron Portable - New computer = Session / Tabs / Profile / Extensions all empty

Postby JSSSX » Mon Jun 22, 2020 3:29 am

Hello,

I have been using Iron Portable for years, without issue, upgrading as well without issue.

I did change my computer completely but, after launching Iron Browser Portable, it was like a first fresh launch.
Everything is gone :
- My session / opened tabs
- Extensions

Seems like the whole profile was attached to the previous computer, even if it is a portable version.

But the profile folder is still there, even the extensions folders, but Iron seems to not care.

Anyone had this issue too ? Any suggestion ?
I do have a backup, but restoring does nothing, when I launch it, it is emptied.

Thanks.

You would have to copy over your Appdata/Chromium files to the new computer I would think.
Not sure how the Google sync works, I never use it.

Thanks for the reply.

It is PORTABLE version, so profile has always been inside the same folder of Iron.
That is why I did not understand why all is gone.

I've found out that PROFILE is stuck with the OLD PC, which means that even if a version is portable, once you put it somewhere else, like a new computer in my case, then you will lose the profile access (some parts in fact).
