"Please use the check database action, then try again" error message

I clicked on one of my decks and it says “Please use the check database action, then try again”. It is only showing me 2 cards in that deck even though there are about 80 cards total.
How do I go about fixing it.

The check database is a function of Anki.
Run Tools>Check Database, then check your collection to see if it helped.

@pavreh but only 18 out of 81 cards are showing up. How do I recover the rest of my cards that were in the deck?

What did check DB say when you ran it? If you’ve forgotten, you can restore from a backup and then try again.
