Backup from the desktop app, how-to

Changes you make in Bird Journal are synced to our systems as you make them. If you're without internet, they'll be synced when internet becomes available. If you ever need to reinstall Bird Journal, just sign in with your email & password.

It is also possible to create your own backups for additional peace of mind.

To create a backup, open the Tools menu and select Backup.

The backup screen will then open.

Press the Browse button to choose where to save the backup file. Press Backup Now to perform the backup.

Backups are a single file, typically called backup.birdJournal2. Please do not attempt to manually restore a backup without guidance from the Bird Journal Team. Instead you should simply sign in again.
