I was using Chrome halfway when the computer crashed. Usually if I restart and re-run Chrome, there would be a Restore button to recover my lost Chrome session.
However, I restarted in Safe Mode, and re-ran Chrome. I saw no Restore button (just a blank window). Sensing trouble, I restarted the computer in "normal mode" and re-ran Chrome again. But there was still no Restore button. (Ctrl-Shift-T isn't working either.)
I quickly did a backup of the user data folder, but the files "Last Session" and "Last Tabs" are only 1 KB each (so the actual data is no longer within those files):
How do I do a "session restore" now that the Restore button is gone?
How do I do a "session restore" when Chrome has already overridden "Last Session" and "Last Tabs"?
(Is there any way to restore the lost session using other files like "History Index" and etc?)
