A few years ago I tried Joplin for a few months and abandoned it because, at the time, there were a few bugs with Linux that were a deal killer for me.
About a year ago I tried again and the problems were gone so I started using it again and merged into it thousands of notes from other sources. I forgot about the old installation. I recently found it on a backup and I'd like to merge it to my current install.
I thought of changing config/joplin-desktop to joplin-desktop.safe, substituting the old joplin-desktop, starting joplin and exporting all to a jex, restore joplin-desktop.safe, start joplin and merge.
I have two concerns:
will I screw up my sync when I open the old version?
the old version has only these files:
while the new version has several more.
What's the best way to do this?
I'd be devastated if I lost any part of my Joplin "Peripheral brain"
Joplin 2.5.10 (prod, linux)
Sync Version: 3
Profile Version: 39
Keychain Supported: No
Linux Mint 20.2
No idea what version the old data files were created with.
