Platform: Windows 10
Joplin version: 1.0.140
I am currently not using the synchronization features, because I have not been able to get Joplin to sync with my Nextcloud install despite repeated attempts. I decided to figure it out later and set the sync options to:
Synchronization interval: Disabled
Synchronization target: File system
Directory to sync with: (empty)
Despite this, Joplin kept telling me it was syncing. Today it gave me a sync conflict despite not syncing with anything. I decided to try syncing it with something to get the conflict to stop, and went with my file system. As Joplin has been located on the C: drive, I set the sync location to E:\joplin. I pressed sync.
Joplin proceeded to delete every single note. And no, I don’t have a backup, because this was supposed to be the backup. There is no reason I would have suspected I’d lose EVERYTHING.
So. If my notes are still on my hard drive somewhere, and if I can put them back into Joplin, I would appreciate directions.
