I’m going to attempt to make this as brief as possible.
I use AnkiWeb a lot on public transport, which means my “local” Anki programme has not been synced or updated in quite a while.
Today, I did the unspeakable. I launched up my local Anki program and pressed the sync button, hoping to download my AnkiWeb data to the local machine. However, when pressing sync, I was not prompted with any concerns as to whether I would like to upload or download the data, and the old and outdated local Anki data was uploaded to AnkiWeb, where it stands now today with hundreds of pending cards (and about three weeks worth of erased progress).
I was hoping to be prompted with a download/upload question when pressing sync. Fate was not so kind.
I looked around in the forums, and saw threads suggesting you could possibly help with this, @dae ? I would be forever appreciative (as I am also super mindful and appreciative of accurate data in my Anki stats… as well as my lost progress).
Some details for reference in case of the possibility of restoration:
- The “point of messing up” was the 6th of October 2023, at ~10:50PM (UTC+2).
- The pending cards of a 2.3k vocab deck went from 192 to around 452.
Thank you in advance,
