You should probably ask to the makers of that product. It seems very unlikely that anybody here will know how this works, specially as it is a closed-source product for another platform. – Javier Rivera Mar 21 '12 at 16:54
@JavierRivera ; title has edited with Jorge Castro , i just want to restore it in ubuntu. – hamed Mar 21 '12 at 16:56
It's not the title, the program that you used to backup Chrome, is not related to Ubuntu, not available in Ubutu. I'm afraid we can't help you, you should ask to the program maker. – Javier Rivera Mar 21 '12 at 17:06
Your profile is in /home/Your_name/.config/google-chrome/Default. Just back that up as frequently as you want? – user25656 Mar 21 '12 at 17:31

One possible way to do this would be to set up Google Sign in with Chrome, this will then sync your settings inbetween your windows and ubuntu computers.

You can't.

As you can see that is not an official tool made from Google and, more important, it is only for Windows. So you can restore a backup done with it only on Windows (with the same program I think).

Use official guides to backup your works and understand softwares, not just some_junks_made_by_unknown_people_that_promise_to_be_the_BEST_solution.
