I'm bringing up a new machine and upgrade to Windows 10 at the same time. I use Chrome and routinely back up my browser settings - C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default. In bringing up the new image, I copied this backup to the same directory on the new machine after installing Chrome, but with it not running. All my bookmarks loaded just fine, but my passwords and autofill settings did not.
The documentation I see says that the passwords are stored in a file called Login.Data. I've opened this file in Notepad and can see just enough through the encryption to recognize it is containing my passwords. I've manually copied just this file to the new directory and verified it over there. Passwords still don't load. I created a password in Chrome and saved it to see if the file would be overwritten. It doesn't appear to be. So I can't figure out what is going on except that perhaps the file or location has changed for Chrome in Windows 10. Does anyone recognize this behavior and can you please tell me how to port my passwords?
