For WINDOWS so for Android....
2. Find and ask this question on XDA Forums as StackOverflow. It's going to be deeply technical and frustrating. Most likely NEVER to come back since Sync is tied to the user account (email) and for security reasons which I won't elaborate on, my bet is it's gone gone gone.
Phone model: Samsung Galaxy S5 Active (SAMSUNG-SM-G870A Build/MMB29M)
Android version: 6.0.1
I wrote a post in the google product forums for chrome regarding how to export my android's chrome browser's format in a readable format with clickable links/time accessed, etc.
Unfortunately, the advice I was given was essentially, "try sync again." I had tried this several times which did not result in the phone's history getting synced to my account. Because the email I was using was an institutional email, I tried signing into a different email, which instead led to my browser history becoming inaccessible or deleted. I am not sure which. Usually when I just sign out of the google account in chrome, the browser history is restored.
So my question is this: How do I restore the history for the chrome browser? Do I need to root the device to access the history file and roll it back to a previous time? I was told that there is the possibility that this wasn't a complete delete since that isn't the case with SQL databases.
Any help would be appreciated ASAP.
