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

  • At the top of your screen, click on the Bark dog
  • Click on Choose Backup Location

Step 2: Choose a new backup location

A file window will appear where you can choose where you’d like to save your backup. 

Once you’ve chosen the folder you would like to use, click Open on the bottom right:

Step 3: Quit 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.
