Hi - I have logged into my existing AnkiWeb account after almost a year of not using it. When I got into my account there are no card decks present. I made multiple card decks almost a year ago but there is nothing showing. It's as if it is a new/unused account. Is there any way for my cards to be retrieved? I would like to use them again.

    I'm afraid you will only be able to recover your data if you have a backup on one of your devices:

    Hi Damien,

    How do I know if my cards are backed up?

    If you have Anki installed on your devices, you can look for automatic backups it may have taken:
