I have all my decks updated with reviews on AnkiWeb, and I accidentally deleted the profile on Anki Desktop.

How do I sync the decks back onto my desktop with the reviews etc.? I really don't want to lose the progress on the decks on my laptop!

    Hi Fatima,

    When syncing a new profile, just make sure to choose Download, and it will fetch your cards from AnkiWeb.

    I should make a new profile, and if I click “sync” it’ll download all cards
    from AnkiWeb?

    Provided you choose "download", yes

    Where is the “download” option on my Anki desktop?

    There is only “sync”

    After hitting sync on a new Profile, Anki will ask your whether you would like to Download or Upload.
