Can't open backup

Whenever I try opening a backup from “open backup”, I get an error that says “Automatic syncing and backups have been disabled while restoring. To enable them again, close the profile or restart Anki.” From there every time I hit “sync” it makes me upload to anki web or download from anki web. I tried upgrading to the latest anki (I use version 2.1.26) and that did not resolve my issue either. I’ve downgraded back to 2.1.26.

Anyone know what’s going on?

When you restore a backup, a full sync is forced so that your other devices can be restored to the same state as the backup. Once you upload and then download on other devices, you should be able to sync again normally.
