Backup and Restore Your Data

Home Private: Help – Old 05 Troubleshooting Backup and Restore Your Data

If you use iCloud synchronization, your notes are backup up automatically in iCloud and will be downloaded on the first launch of a new device.

In addition, you can use the backup functionality of your device to create a copy of SnipNotes’ data:


Back up your device as usual via iCloud or iTunes. This backup contains the data of all your installed apps, including SnipNotes.


Create a copy of SnipNotes’ data folders with Time Machine or another backup utility:


~/Library/Group Containers/

The second path contains a subfolder “database”. The file “SnipNotes.realm” stores all your notes and can be viewed with the free tool Realm Browser.

Notice: When you restore a local backup, you may have to reset the iCloud synchronization.
