I have a persistent issue in syncing notes via desktop Joplin client to my backend NC. Joplin on my mobile device sync is fine but the issue is with the desktop client. I think this is causing discrepancy between notes on mobile and desktop.
Desktop Joplin client version : 2.7.15
Host Operating System : Windows 10 Home 21H1
Mobile Joplin version : 12.7.1
Host Operating System : iOS 15.2
Today the desktop client succeeded to sync !
I will be leaving the sync target to be NextCloud from now on and ditch WebDAV. Question : Shall selecting a different sync target of the mobile Joplin , than the desktop client, say WebDAV for the mobile and NextCloud for the desktop, cause any issue ? Question : In the same vein, and regarding "Note History" setting, shall setting two different note history saving days between mobile and desktop cause any future issue ?
Word of warning, changing the sync target isn't a trivial change and you could lose all your data if you aren't very careful. You should follow this guide if you do plan to move.
Please just make sure you take backups before you do anything at all, I recommend installing the simple backup plugin as that will backup both your profile settings as well as performing the JEX export for you.
Honestly not sure, I don't know what the functional difference between the two sync targets actually is I'm afraid.
The lower of the two settings is what counts. Essentially neither client knows the other is connected so when it deletes the data based on the revision setting it does so locally then just syncs that deletion to the target.
