I just had to format my Windows 7 system and start over, I made some backups of certain files/folders though and I am trying to find out where Google Chrome stores users data that extensions save, like which folder(s) I could look in to maybe recover some data for a certain extension I had?

Looks like it's %LocalAppData%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Storage.

This looks about right...

for linux ~/.config/google-chrome/Default/Local Storage –  Amit G Jan 27 at 11:38
Is this documented? If I backup this folder and try to restore it next time, would it work? –  Pacerier Mar 18 at 16:20
