Syncing question

Hello, I want to sync my decks from Ankiweb to Anki (the app on Mac) but when I clicked sync it gave me this warning "If you choose download, Anki will download the collection from AnkiWeb, and any changes you have made on your computer since the last sync will be lost."

I have thousands of words on my AnkiWeb and it would be tragic if I lost them. I don't know what it means when they say "any changes on my computer since the last sync". I haven't sync my AnkiWeb to the App before. Will I lose my decks on AnkiWeb if I download the collection?

    Hi Jordan,

    If your cards are on AnkiWeb and you want them transferred to your computer, "download" is the correct choice.
