Can I transfer my Memtime Data to a new PC (Windows)?

Your Memtime Data and captured activities are stored in a database locally on your device. This database can be manually transferred to a new or different device.


Attention! We do not officially support this process at the moment. Please, be careful as you handle your data because copying and transferring your Memtime files might lead to data loss.

To avoid any potential data corruption, it is crucial to ensure that the Memtime app is completely closed before performing any actions with the database.

If you would prefer to go through this process with someone from our Customer Support team, you can always book a call with us here.

One of the best things about Memtime is that it keeps your data saved on your device where only you can access it.
