I lost all of my collections also. I was working locally on Windows and was not using ScratchPad. I tried looking for them. I found “Users[myusername]\Postman” but it was empty except for an empty “files” sub-directory. Please tell me how to restore my collections so I can import them into my online workspace.
UPDATE: I did find "Users[myusername]\AppData\Roaming\Postman" with multiple sub-directories, several of which appear to be “databases”. Is this where my missing collections might be?
I had the same condition. I found the backup files in the folder C:\Users\admin\AppData\Roaming\Postman. The files, there were some, are named like backup-2023-09-18T08-00-30.744Z.json. I created a collection and restored the json file created the day before Postman was update. This way I got my collection back.
Well, POSTMAN used to be a very nice tool - with this move I will never use it AGAIN!
Just losing all my local collection before a meeting with customer. Standing in the rain and then being forced to do thing - bullshit - absolut bullshit.
Thank you. Very helpful. It’s good that Postman does backup (I didn’t even know about it). I have recovered the files. Thanks to the Postman team for coming up with the idea of doing backup. By the way, I found the path to the backup file through Double Commander, otherwise I wouldn’t have seen it through a regular Finder.
