How to reset opera back to factory default setting (Profile reset)


The basic steps are 1)Backup necessary files 2)Delete opera6(configuration settings) file from profile directory. See details below.
What is profile reset?
Profile reset removes all your preference settings(like the options you choose in tools>preferences,custom toolbars,menu etc) and let opera rebuild it to the factory default condition automatically. The great advantage it brings that it destroys bad settings that you might have done or might have accumulated with multiple upgrade etc. This is very likely to resolve many issues users encountered with opera user settings.
What to do before profile reset? Do I need to backup?
You need to backup your files so that you can get back your data.
How to do the profile reset?
Close opera. You need to locate your profile directory (Help>about opera will show you the exact location). In windows xp, it is commonly at c:\documents&settings>username>application data>opera>opera>profile and in win vista its under in Win Vista C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming\Opera. Note that "Application data" is a hidden folder in windows and you need to enable the opton to view hidden files and folders(open my computer>tools>folder options>view>show hidden files and folders). Once you have found the folder, just find and delete the file opera6.ini(configuration settings). Restart opera and opera will rebuild the profile settings.

how can I manage my icloud to gain more storage space without paying for more storage space?


Here are some methods to help if you don't have enough space on iCloud.

Method 1. Delete Photos/Videos from iCloud
One of the biggest data hogs to take up your iCloud storage space is the photos and videos. iPhone/iPad will automatically back up all your videos and photos to your iCloud. Therefore, deleting photos and videos from iCloud will free up iCloud storage a lot.
1. Tap on Setting > iCloud > Storage. Then tap on Manage Storage.
2. And then tap on This iPhone.
3. Under the Backup options, you will see Photo Library option, set the slider to OFF position.
4. Tap on Turn off & Delete to delete all photos and videos from iCloud.

Method 2. Delete Data & Documents
If you still find that there is no enough storage on your iCloud, you can try to delete these app-related documents and data to free up iCloud storage.
1. Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage.
2. Select an app under "Documents & Data".(The first one genrally takes the biggest storage)
3. After selecting the app, tap the "Edit" tab in the upper right corner and then select the specific document to remove, or tap the "Delete All" tab.

Method 3. Close Unnessary Backups for Apps
If there are entire apps that you don't need to backup, you can do so by following the steps below to fix not enough iCloud storage for your iOS devices:
1. Go to Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage.
2. Select the device you want to manage the backup for.
3. Under "Backup Options", toggle apps off that you do not want to sync to iCloud.

1st approach (Quick one!)

1. Soft reset your device
2. make a backup copy of the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA if exists.
3. delete the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA.
4. Soft reset your device once again.


2nd approach (Long one!)

If 1st approach did not work, restore the MSMETADATA folder and try the following:

Step Zero: BACKUP
- Make a full backup of your device (including storage cards). If you don't like to do a full backup keep at least a backup of all files and folders we are going to delete as indicated below:

Step One
-In the main device directory delete the file WMPInfo.xml
-Delete the \Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\ directory and all of
the files in it including the WMDRM folder.
-Delete the \Music folder

Step Two
-Go to your SD card main directory and delete the file WMPInfo.xml
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\WMDRM
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\Music

Step Three
-Repeat step two for any other storage cards.

Step Four
-Refresh devices in WMP and the storages card should show up in the left tab
and in the sync window you can click "Next Device"

Hope this helps...
