Back Up issue

Hello,
I somehow went into the coding part of the Anki that i downloaded and deleted some lines by mistake. The addition of cards is not working anymore. I tried to delete it from my computer ( as in uninstall it ) and install it again but the same issues are there because of what i did. I think it stays there because the program itself backed itself up before i closed it.

Is there a way I can delete the backup as well to start fresh? The lines i messed up are past redemption.

If someone can help me with this issue I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
M

    You can either open a backup from before you made the change, or use File>Switch Profile and create a new profile if you wish to start afresh.
