Cards just disappeared's Avatar

12 Feb, 2020 07:18 PM

One hour ago I created three cards on my phone using Ankidroid and then immediately clicked sync. When I ten minutes later tried to access these three cards on my computer - after a sync - they were all gone. Double checking on my phone, they are gone there too.

What might possibly have happened!?!?

I have created 50-60 cards before and I haven't noticed that any of those have disappeared (but I didn't look very closely so I can't say for sure) and these 3 new cards were the first card where I really made an effort to make complete cards (before it has mostly been proof-of-concept) and this is a little worrisome (especially since I am about to invite more beginners to contribute).

    If you were asked to choose whether to upload/download, then you may have overwritten your changes. If not, then it may be a bug in AnkiDroid. If you can cause it to happen again in the future, please report the issue to the AnkiDroid developers:

    AnkiDroid has a separate support site

    After some further googling around the time I reported this issue I realised that certain cards are hidden when they are new or something like that? I don't remember the details - do you know what I am talking about?

    If you're referring to the daily card limit or buried siblings (, you should still be able to locate those cards by searching for them in the Browse screen.
