Where can I find the Recollectr log files?
  • Windows: C:\Users\[Your Username]\AppData\Roaming\Recollectr\log.log
  • macOS: ~/Library/Logs/Recollectr/log.log
  • Linux:
    • AppImage: ~/.config/Recollectr/log.log

Where does Recollectr store its data?
  • Windows: C:\Users\[Your Username]\AppData\Roaming\Recollectr\storage\
  • macOS: ~/Library/Application Support/Recollectr/storage/
  • Linux:
    • AppImage: ~/.config/Recollectr/storage/
    • Snap: ~/snap/recollectr/current/.config/Recollectr/storage/
How is data stored?
  • state.json – Your current notes and options
  • fileDB/ – Your file attachments, such as images

Inside of these are subfolders named encrypted/ and unencrypted/

Your data will be in one of these subfolders, depending on whether you’ve enabled encryption.

Does Recollectr keep backups locally?

Recollectr takes a local backup of your state.json file, at startup and every 12 hours. Additionally, backups are created for all attachments and revisions prior to encrypting your data. For how to restore a backup, see Troubleshooting.
