Restoring deleted tabs in Google Chrome

    Today, I unintentionally deleted 40 tabs I have had open in Google Chrome on my phone for a long time, some of them for up to three years. All these webpages were significant to me, and I'm desperate to retrieve them if this is at all possible. Here's how I made the blunder:

    Settings > Application manager > Chrome > Manage Storage > Clear All Data

    This has wiped out all tabs (and History) in Chrome on my phone, so I'd be very grateful for expert advice on retrieving them.

    Kind thanks,

    Thanks, Mikedt. I don't believe I did, esp. if this was a specific step I should have taken in advance ... I'm not tech savvy, and tend to operate my phone with default settings. But I appreciate the tip - something to be aware of in future. Thanks once again for your help. Simon :)

    Is recent tabs not in your chrome drop down menu? If you didn't save the 40 as bookmarks they are gone

    Yes - Recent Tabs is there. But I didn't have my 40 odd tabs bookmarked. They are indeed gone.

    Thanks, Danny.

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    you should never have 40 tabs open. it can potentially slow down the phone by taking up data and storage space. always bookmark your websites you like. you can even put the bookmarks in named folders for better organization.
