Lost all chrome tabs - including ALL saved session buddy tabs

Recommended Posts


I just ran Ccleaner (as I have many times before without isse).  Today I ran it and it closed chrome twice.  Once it closed it and when I opened it I could access all of my Windows and tabs (3 windows and multiple tabs).   I also saved my session with the Session Buddy Extension before running the program).  After the second closing and reopening of Chrome, all my tab history was gone and all of my previously saves sessionbuddy sessions were gone as well.  Does anyone know if I can possible get this stuff back? 


Thanks for any help

Your screenshot shows that you have CCleaner set to clear 'Sessions' for both Firefox and Chrome, - so CCleaner will clear them and the information about what windows/tabs you had open will be gone.

If you don't want your sessions to be cleared in future then untick 'Session' for both browsers.

I'm not familiar with the Session Buddy Extension, but from a quick read it seems that it simply saves it's information to the same place that the browser saves it's session information/data; so it will also have been cleared.
That is unless you have specifically told Session Buddy to backup or otherwise export your Session Buddy data:

Note though that even if you had made a Session Buddy backup then unless you moved it out of the browsers download folder then because you also have 'Download History' ticked for both browsers that backup has probably been cleared as well.



You can back up your Session Buddy data anytime by selecting Back up from the Session Buddy application menu.

Doing so creates a file containing your saved sessions and settings in your browser’s downloads folder. You can simply leave this backup file in the downloads folder or move it to another location for safe-keeping.

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:
