I'm having some trouble with my Joplin notes. I had 2FA on the Dropbox account where my notes were stored, but I lost my 2FA app and backup codes. The laptop where I last synced my notes recently died. How can I recover the notes that were on the HDD without having access to my Dropbox? Do I need to install Windows on my current machine in order to get my notes? I'm on Fedora right now.
If the disk came from cleanly-installed Windows 11, it's probably Bitlocker-encrypted. If this is the case, you may be able to recover access, but that's a very, very painful process, probably best left to an expert, especially if your notes are worth enough to pay somebody to do the recovery.
I know this isn't really a help, but for the future, I use the Simple backup plugin and it automatically backs up each individual folder each day and keeps a few. That way I can recover everything or just a single notebook. Of course, I then later in the night, backup that backup to another drive and also to the cloud.
