Questions and answers

  • What is an .OBML backup file and what does it contain?

    An .OBML backup file is a file format used by the Opera Mini web browser to store backup data. It contains a compressed version of the user's browsing history, bookmarks, saved pages, and other settings. This backup file allows users to restore their browser data, such as bookmarks and saved pages, in case of data loss or when transferring their browsing data to a new device.

  • How can I create an .OBML backup file for my web browser?

    To create an .OBML backup file for your web browser, you can follow these steps:

    1. Open your web browser (e.g., Opera Mini) and navigate to the page you want to back up.
    2. Click on the menu button (usually represented by three dots or lines) located at the top-right corner of the browser window.
    3. From the menu, select the option that allows you to save the page. In Opera Mini, this option is typically labeled as "Save for offline" or "Save page."
    4. A prompt will appear asking you to choose the location where you want to save the page. Select a suitable location on your device or storage medium.
    5. After choosing the save location, you may be given the option to save the page as an .OBML file. If this option is available, select it to save the page in the .OBML format. If not, proceed to the next step.
    6. If the browser does not provide the option to save as an .OBML file, you can manually change the file extension after saving the page. Once the page is saved, locate the file on your device and rename it, changing the file extension to ".obml". For example, if the file is named "page.html," rename it to "page.obml".

    By following these steps, you should be able to create an .OBML backup file for your web browser. Remember that the availability of the .OBML format may vary depending on the browser you are using.

  • Is it possible to restore an .OBML backup file to a different web browser or device?

    No, it is not possible to restore an .OBML backup file to a different web browser or device. OBML (Opera Binary Markup Language) files are specific to the Opera Mini web browser and can only be restored within the same browser or compatible versions. They cannot be transferred or restored to other web browsers or devices.
