Deleted cards

How do I get back cards I accidentally deleted? I tried moving them to a different subdeck and deleted them from the old subdeck, and they are nowhere. My anki was not synced to ankihub. How do i access the deleted text files on a mac?

Open Finder, navigate to the user which has Anki installed, hit β€œCommand+Shift+.” to show hidden files, then Library β†’ Application Support β†’ Anki (or Anki2) β†’ (Name of your anki profile) β†’ backups

From there you can upload one of your recent backups which would still have the deleted cards to anki. Depending on how frequently you have backups set and what you’ve done between the last and now, you may lose some reviews/new cards/etc.

Hope that helps!

To get all the cards back, please try resetting your local changes:

Go to browse in your Anki β†’ at the top click on ankihub addon tab β†’ press reset all local changes

This will restore everything to what AnkiHub has unless you have specifically protected those fields
