now I see - and understand. Thanks for explanation.
Yes, this is still a shortcoming of Vivaldi. I somewhat also suffer from that because it (currently) does not allow for a clever backup strategy (by means of the minimum required file set to save). So I simply backup the entire profile with some exceptions.
Thats the code, note the excluded folders (after /XD
The resulting folder is 7-zipped and has a (current) size of about 5,5 MB. With exception of the extensions (I only have a few whose settings are saved in individual text files anyway) this backup restores everything important for me. I may help you on improving the sync once you will give it another try.
Code: Select all
robocopy "%PROFILE%" "%TARGET%\C.myApplications.web.VivaldiTP.Profile.Default" /MIR /XD GPUCache %PROFILE%\Cache %PROFILE%\Extensions "%PROFILE%\Extension Rules" "%PROFILE%\Extension State" "%PROFILE%\Local Extension Settings" "%PROFILE%\Media Cache" %PROFILE%\Storage /XF "%PROFILE%\History" "%PROFILE%\ChromeDWriteFontCache" "%PROFILE%\Top Sites"
Though I guess this is mostly due to the Chromium core, I already have made a feature request for a feasible backup routine two times. However, I don't think this will be addressed before Sync
But (inbuild) feature wise Vivaldi is great.
