Good afternoon,

I was using Anki and tried to recover deleted flashcards by switching the profile, but I then lost all of my new flashcards. Is there a way to undo this? Please let me know. Thank you.

    If you go to the menu File -> Switch Profile and hit the Open Backup button, can you find an earlier backup of your collection? If not and you did not backup them somewhere, then, you probably lost your new cards.

    From now on, you could start doing a daily backup by yourself. In my computer, I programmed it to daily run a script that backups the whole Anki directory daily up to the last 100 copies/days.
