Well, I have mostly moved over to Joplin after 10 years of using Evernote. Their lack of innovation, awful editor, toxic forum atmosphere and increasingly steep price hikes are the main reasons. Joplin does almost everything I would want it to and in many cases, actually better than Evernote, which is an INCREDIBLE feat considering Evernote is a decade older and had HUNDREDS of employees working on it. Hats off to @laurent - my utmost respect.
However, since the app is meant to keep my “life’s memories” forever, I need a little failsafe For example, I had a note that contained some images and text. I wanted to edit the note on my Android… but then accidentally removed too much text plus part of the code that contained an image. To my horror it auto saved immediately after - and no way to undo my edit.
I actually managed to correct this by quickly running to my desktop, copying the original note, wait for the sync to finish, then paste the note to the version before the Android edit.
That got me thinking though - I really, REALLY need to create a daily backup process. I have exported my entire environment to a JEX file (5+GB), but I don’t want to do this daily. Is there a Windows feature that can do this automatically?
I searched this forum and found a cron script that works on Linux, but I’m using Joplin on Windows and Android and sync through Dropbox… is there a similar script/method that would create a backup on Windows?
Thanks and once again, big thumbs up on what has been accomplished with Joplin, I’m really impressed with the features and overal stability and really look forward to make it my daily driver!
