I imported my friend's decks and all mine are gone

My friend sent me some decks which I imported on my desktop but it deleted all of current decks and replaced them with hers. My original decks are still visible on my ankimobile and ankiweb. Im not sure what to do and im scared to sync and lose my original cards PLEASE HELP!! Ive got an an exam soon

You can force a one way sync, then download from Ankiweb > Anki Desktop.

You can also restore your collection from an automatic backup:


This is probably because she exported a collection package (.colpkg) instead of a deck package (.apkg). See Exporting - Anki Manual
