wounded in the line of duty
Great finding. Well - this was the first time i experienced such a behavior. Yesterday resp today morning i closed the broswer without any problems and as i started it today - without any warnings - i just saw a few tabs. To be clearly i had ~50 Tabs total in different groups and all these groups are still there but just 3 of them contain any tabs - #1 group has all 4 entries, #2 is ~ half complete, and the supposed to be biggest one #3 just got 2 tabs. The other 3 groups are as i wrote empty. Can't be date too - the tabs in groups #1&2 are at least few days old, only the 2 tabs in #3 have been used yesterday/last session.
So i took a look into sessionstore.bak (also made copys btw) and found it has (beside timestamp) same data. Then i tried to search with recuva on some recovery files but as expected on ssd with trim - no use. Then i searched and found this site. On the unsorted JSON finding the "_ClosedTabs" and "_ClosedWindows" isn't that easy so i tried to find an JSON editor. I don't like online tools - especially when handling browser/session data. I found some like "xmlmarker_2_2" "XML-ValidatorBuddy 4.4" (btw. dont try JsonEditor_v1.1 using fiddler4 - ist just for traffic capturing) but they were all of no use. "eclipse + jsonedit plugin" might be a good tipp, but some might don't want to install such tools and i couldn't manage to get it working (appeared on the "perferences" but no "json view" and no "open with").
So what i found working and doing the job i need was a file called "jsoneditor-2.2.1.zip" with included 03-Example. So i managed to get a more structured code and could move the tabs etc. I also saw that there still aren't all links included - only ~half of them, yet i wanted to test it. It did open the amount of tabs that where set, but no links (except for above tabs) while i know they are included in the session. After some tries i decided to test "David-Sarah Hopwood"'s Python method. First: simplejson was bit picky - it's already included in Python 2.6+ but as json. "import json as simplejson" gives no warning but doesn't work either. So i just renamed it in the script. Finally things started and peng: "TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for >>: 'builtin_function_or_method' and '_io.TextIOWrapper'" This is where i give up. So anyone an idea what i could do next? Any way to repar the json or should i just copy the links out and start from scratch?
Further any tipps for session backups? I already use sync, but for AddOns, Passwords, Bookmarks only as i use different profiles, machines, .... with different sessions i don't need to mix up.
