Anki Decks diappeared - nowhere to be found

Hi guys,
I got a problem with my Anki decks - I imported 15 cards from my friend and after that, all my own decks disappeared. In the general overview of the decks, there is only the imported one left (called Standard).


I can still select the names of the decks in the ‘card management’ section but whenever I click on search and then preview for one of my previous decks (Neuro, chriurgie, Medis, Innere), there is this:

Anki 2.1.35 (84dcaa86) Python 3.8.0 Qt 5.14.2 PyQt 5.14.2

Platform: Mac 10.15.4

Flags: frz=True ao=False sv=1

Add-ons, last update check: 2020-11-27 15:32:08

Caught exception:

Traceback (most recent call last):

File “aqt/previewer.py”, line 101, in _on_replay_audio

File “aqt/reviewer.py”, line 35, in replay_audio

AttributeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute ‘question_av_tags’

Anyone know what I could do? I didnt create an account with a backup since I didnt think I would need it (well, here I go), and I urgendtly need it for my medical exam next week :frowning:

Hope someone can help me! Thanks in advance!

Maybe your friend has exported a collection package (.colpkg) instead of a deck package (.apkg).
See https://docs.ankiweb.net/#/exporting?id=collection-colpkg for the difference.

You may be able to restore from a local backup.
