Recent update to Opera decided to mess-up up my profile location

The recent update to portable Opera and it decided to FK up my profile. FU Chedder Gobblin!
Now the browser profile has been reset to factory settings after I closed out.

I got a POP-UP message yesterday that a duplicate profile was detected when I tried to Run Opera.

Some how my profile data got moved to R:\PortableApps\PortableApps\OperaPortable\App\DefaultData\profile
So copied the data over to where it should be.
My mistake was not duplicating both folders.
So I moved the data.
I was able to close and reopen Opera about 3 times before it decided to puke cheddar macaroni all over my data.

FU cheddar gobblin!

DefaultData

DefaultData\profile is not where your profile was. That's the default BLANK profile that ships with Opera Portable. The popup stated where the duplicate profiles were due to an unsafe close or non-portable launch by running opera.exe directly (pinned to taskbar, associated with files, etc).

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I stand corrected. however,

I stand corrected. however, the profile folder was moved to
R:\PortableApps\PortableApps\OperaPortable\Data\
On the 3rd reopen the files in there were reset. otherwise would taken action soon.

I uninstalled it and reinstalled it.
Portable Chrome and FireFox are still stable.
I'll just make sure I have backups.
