This question already has an answer here:
I have two os's installed. My main and another one that is a fresh install. The main os's HD got corrupted but most of the files are intact(mainly boot stuff). I am trying to restore my google chrome profile.
I have copied the google chrome dir \Users\%User%\App Data\Local\Google to the working OS's drive and it didn't work. For some reason chrome was installed in program files. I then copied everything over to program files.
When chrome starts it loads up the bookmarks and passwords/login info it seems but no extensions or settings.
How can I get it to use the extensions I had and everything else. I haven't sync'ed to the cloud in a while so I'm trying to get the most recent changes.
Basically I think I have access to all the chrome data off the old hard drive so the problem is just getting chrome to use it on the new drive. Everywhere I've read says that all the data is under the Google dir but chrome doesn't seem to use it correctly.
