What issue do you have?

I have some notes that aren't assigned to any folder, I can search for them but they seem to be in some kind of a purgatory, I can also find them using

SELECT * FROM notes WHERE parent_id NOT IN (SELECT id FROM folders f) 

and I have 17 of them

Also I have 3 folders in that purgatory and those folders even have their notes

SELECT * FROM folders WHERE parent_id NOT IN (SELECT id FROM folders f)

This sounds almost identical to what happened to me! In my case, the master folder that contained them disappeared.
