first of all, thank you for your work on Joplin, and for making such a great software product for free. After a bit of experimentation Joplin strikes me as an excellent note taking tool (I could not manage to make it an effective planning / organisation tool a la org-mode, but it is not designed to be one).
My data loss case
I am certainly not the first candidate who managed to erase most (but maybe not all) of his data after a re-install of Joplin on both his notebook (Linux) and phone (Android 5, Note 3). While there seems to be a mechanism to prevent any data loss, it did not prevent my notes from being deleted. Against better judgement I did not make a backup of my Dropbox folder before initializing the sync after re-install. Et voila...
Strangely, while I am angry at experimenting without a backup, I feel a bit relieved after this data loss.
- version: 1.7.11
- sync target: Dropbox
- I have some remaining encrypted .md files. Is there any way to recover the data? I have the remains of the @joplin and joplin-desktop folders (including a 12 MB slite database). Is it possible to do that with the Joplin application? Please note that the latter does not show me any Notebooks or notes.
- Is there a guide or best practices how to re-sync after a re-install?
