About two weeks ago (approximately), Joplin on my Huawei tablet (Android 9) and on my OnePlus 2 phone (Android 6) started acting up. By “acting up”, I mean that I would update a note, it would sync it (I’m using Box.com as a WebDAV server) but the note would not actually be synced with any other clients. I’m also using Joplin on a Windows 10 machine (a portable installation).
Please note that I am using the latest version of Joplin across all of my devices as I’m one of those weird people that actively keep their applications up to date.
Today I started feeling rather frustrated with this because I updated two files on my Windows machine and when I force-synced Joplin on my mobile devices, the notes were not updated. I made a backup of my notes from Windows and uninstalled/reinstalled Joplin on my OnePlus Two. Three uninstallations/reinstallations/reboots later, I’m still unable to get all my notes on that device. The ‘Sync interval’ setting is completely ignored (it’s set to 5 mins and the last time it synced was 13 mins ago) and when I force-sync it says “Completed: 12/05/2019 17:52” (or whatever the time is at that point). 45 mins later, it still hasn’t downloaded all my notes and notebooks (we’re talking about 167 notes, nothing major) and as I’m using encryption I can’t use Joplin on my mobile because it doesn’t download/still hasn’t downloaded the Master Keys.
Checking the log I can see that the errors I was seeing on the UI are about “permission denied to create node (Exception Sabre_DAV_Exception_Forbidden)”. However, in the folder where the Joplin notes are stored, I can now see multiple 1KB files, all carrying the same timestamp which I assume are contents of the “Welcome to Joplin (mobile)” notebook.
Can someone please help me with this? I have a log exported in a txt file if that will be of use to anyone attempting to troubleshoot this.
Thank you advance for your help!
