This guide will show you how to set Bark to upload backups to the location you have chosen on your Mac.

Step 1: Open the Bark Desktop App

  • Navigate to the bottom right of your screen and click on the upward pointing arrow ^ 
  • Right-click on the Bark dog
  • Select Choose Backup Location

Step 2: Choose a new location for backups

  • The file manager will open and you can choose a location to add your backups. 

Step 3: Exit and Re-open Bark

That's it! You have now changed the location for your child's iOS device backups. 

When you re-open Bark, you may see it say "No iOS devices found" since it needs a new backup file to be saved at the new location. To do so, follow these steps!

Note If you ever have to troubleshoot the Bark Desktop App, you may be asked to "Reset Data," and if that's the case, the Bark backup location you had chosen will revert back to the original location. You will have to remember to change the backup location back to your desired location.
