Say I'm getting a new PC with Windows, and want to migrate my Joplin data to it (currently 2.12.19). I subscribe to Microsoft 365 (OneDrive). So how would you do it? Copy the
C:\Users\me\.config\joplin-desktop folder 'as is' to a secure backup location, then install Joplin on the freshly-installed Windows, then copy over the backed up folder? Or the other way around — first, creating the above dir, then installing Joplin? Or, instead, exporting a big single .jex file prior to migrating? What is the recomended approach?
This begs the questions:
- Would any of the two lead to a conflict?
- Would it matter whether the notes are with encryption set?
What if I want to restore from the OneDrive sync target? So I install Windows, then set up OneDrive, then install Joplin, then configure OneDrive as the sync target, providing credentials, and wait (patiently) for the notes and tags to come through?
Ah, I found this topic, which includes some of Laurent's tips, but that seems a bit more specific; I'm asking generally, and hypothetically. This should be in the FAQ
