How to revert to a previous OmniSync backup Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hello all,

I accidentally selected my new blank default iPhone database to sync to OmniSync and it replaced and wiped out my main database on all my other devices and computers.

My question is, how do I revert to a previous OmniSync back-up? Is this possible?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry for the trouble! OmniFocus for Mac will automatically create backups for you. By default they're placed in the Documents folder, and you can roll back to one by selecting "Revert to Database Backup..." from the File menu.

Once you do that, select "Replace Server Database..." from the same menu - that'll push the data up to your sync server.

Finally, sync your other devices. They'll ask you which database you want to use; have them use the Server one.
