Create and restore Alfred Preferences backups

Version 2023.4 by Alfred Team


Generate a backup of your local Alfred Preferences via the start backup keyword. A macOS launchd agent will be loaded to do it daily at the time set in the Workflow’s Configuration (using the 24-hour clock format). The number of versions to keep is likewise configurable.

Starting a backup

Restore a previous version with the restore backup keyword. It takes a few seconds to complete and restarts Alfred.
