I know this is an old thread, but once again I’m trying to get my lost resources back.
So after trying a few things, these are my findings.
My naive attempt - to
joplin export and check if the file is in the exported dir - didn’t work.
My lost files are mostly .png images. They probably really are encrypted, i’ve tried just renaming the .crypted file to .png, but it isn’t a valid file.
(Aside: there are several mentions of
joplin e2ee dectpytion. Seems to me the actual command is
joplin e2ee decrypt, and Joplin does not give any complaint when you put in the wrong one.)
So I’ve tried (under WSL):
> joplin e2ee -v decrypt /mnt/c/Users/name/.config/joplin-desktop/resources/c6f30f6834ea42a59196b40074b1f271.crypted
Invalid encryption identifier. Data is not actually encrypted? ID was: /mnt/
Not sure what the
/mnt/ there means. Since it’s at the beginning, I’ve tried adding quotes around the path, in case the string just didn’t get passed as I’d expect, but it didn’t help.
select * from notes where body like '%c6f30f6834ea42a59196b40074b1f271%';
returns the note the resource is referenced from.
select * from resources where id = 'c6f30f6834ea42a59196b40074b1f271';
returns 0 rows.
Is there anything else I could try, @laurent ?
