Re-Installing Backyard AI

Please try the steps listed in the Common Issues (opens in a new tab) section first.

If your app is still not working properly, you can re-install it. This will delete all your data.

Before re-installing:

Backup your data by exporting (opens in a new tab) any chats and characters.

Alternatively, if you cannot even open the app, save the db.sqlite file located in the Backyard AI folder (the same one referenced in the steps below). You will need to reach out to a dev in Discord for help recovering this data.

Windows:

Delete the folder: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\faraday\

Then, reinstall with the latest installer on our website (opens in a new tab).

Mac:

Delete the folder: ~/Library/Application Support/faraday/

Then, reinstall with the latest installer on our website (opens in a new tab).
