Dear Damien and team,

I was using anki 2 beta 17 and did a full sync from ankiweb by mistake and lost some important cards.

When I researched into restoring from backup I realised I needed to upgrade to anki2, which I have. The new backup files are now in .apkg

The old backup using anki 2 beta 17 was saved as a .anki2 file. Will I be able to get the lost cards from this backup?

Best wishes,

    Please rename it collection.anki2 and copy it over the existing file of that name.
