How do I back up Mapeo Desktop data?

You can back up Mapeo Desktop data using your operating system's file manager. Mapeo Desktop stores its data in the Mapeo/kappa.db directory on your computer's default application data directory. The default application data directory location may vary depending upon your operating system.

The default application data directory locations are:

  • %APPDATA% or C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mapeo\kappa.db on Windows

  • $XDG_CONFIG_HOME or ~/.config/Mapeo/kappa.db on Linux

  • ~/Library/Application Support/Mapeo/kappa.db on macOS

You can backup data by copying the kappa.db directory to a new location. To transfer data to a new Mapeo Desktop application on a different computer, copy kappa.db directory into the Mapeo directory.
