Backup DOWNLOAD link not functioning


I'd want to download a backup to my desktop, but when I click the Gear icon, then ToDoist Settings, then Backups, I do get a list of backups, each with a Download link. However the Download links do nothing, whether left- or right-mouse clicked; no downloads, no pop-up windows, respectively. Any idea what's wrong?

Hi Brian,

Which browser? Have you tried another browser instead?

Hi Brendon,

I'm currently using Chrome as my default browser, but I'm running the Todoist.exe application on my Win 7 desktop. Todoist isn't in browser window, is it?

I've attached a screen shot of the Todoist Settings / Backup window that shows the Download links that don't respond.

Hi Brian,

Unfortunately, you can only download backup files from the web (using Chrome or any browser). We'll look into making it possible to download backup files from our Windows app.
