    So I’m going on vacation for a week, but I want to continue my Japanese study. So I want to transfer my Anki decks/data from my desktop to my laptop.

    How is this done? I install Anki on my laptop obviously as the first step, but then what? Is there a certain folder that Anki saves it’s SRS data? And is there a way to just transfer all my decks easily, without having to re-add lesson 1, 2, 3, etc all separately?

    Thanks. If this has been answered before, feel free to just link me to whatever topic.

    I haven’t needed to do this yet, but I believe you have to create a free online account here http://anki.ichi2.net/account/login.

    Once you’ve done that, open up anki, then go file > download > personal deck, then enter your username and password. I’d imagine you then have the option of which decks to download and sync to other computers.

    Yeah that’s what I’m trying to mess around with now, is the AnkiWeb stuff. I tried what you said but that just creates the new “synced-deck” on my desktop Anki, which syncs with the web. That’s great and what I want….but it’s an empty deck. I can add my decks okay, but I’m trying to look for a way to import all my SRS data into either the AnkiWeb or to my laptop as well, so that it doesn’t just function as a brand new deck with no SRS data.
