I have a damaged Android phone, which I had been using for a number of years, that has a large number of Joplin notes on it.
I'm looking for a way to manually extract the notes data, and exported so I can use it on my new device.
I mention it is damaged only because it might not be possible to get it any network connectivity, and therefore when I take it to the repair shop I will have to get the data out either through the USB port, or by exporting it to an SD card.
So, considering I cannot use the the standard sync method (honestly, I've never really configured that anyway), how can I manually do this.
Do I need to somehow copy the entire app directory, or just the folder where the notes are?
The actual Joplin installation is obviously in the "android" app "data" directory, but there is a separate file where I have synced the notes through the file system:
If I just copy the contents from here, and send it out, will that be enough to import it to my new installation? Or do I need some other metadata material?
Will that preserve any of the notebooks or tags? Or will it just be a bunch of random individual notes?
Also, the old notes are synced did the local file system, but also encrypted. Do I need to somehow reverse the first? Do I need to export the key file to make them readable in the new installation?
Any detailed instructions on how to do this, even if it seems elementary, would be greatly appreciated, since I am something of a novice.
