Anyway I can get my Ankiweb backup?


I am currently traveling and was using AnkiWeb a lot on my phone to study as it’s quite convenient. Today, I got a chance and opened my computer to sync the AnkiWeb content with an old Anki Desktop I had previously downloaded.

This is where disaster struck! I could have sworn I chose the download from web option, but somehow it synced with the local cards which are quite old and out of date, and overwrote all my new changes in the past few days which were done on the AnkiWeb page.

Is there any way to get a backup of the AnkiWeb data? Since I have mostly been using AnkiWeb instead of Anki Desktop, there is no recent backup of the cards (the last ones before today’s kerfuffle were over a year ago) on my laptop sadly.

I was looking through the forums and it seems like @dae this may be something you could help with? I would be eternally grateful if you could help take a look at this. Thank you so much!

I can restore your AnkiWeb collection to a backup from around a week ago, but it will erase any cards you currently have in it, and you will need to do a full download. Do you want me to proceed?

Hi @dae that would be awesome, thanks!

Ok, it’s restored. Please choose Download on the next sync.

Thanks a bunch, was able to download the new cards! :smile:
