How to create a backup copy of my data (Windows)

Your Memtime Data and captured activities are stored in a database locally on your device. This database can be copied to make a backup of it.

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.

The safest way to copy your data is having your Memtime App completely turned off.

You can always book a call with us here and we will help you through this process.


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