Backup and Restore Your Data

Home Help 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.
