I am having issues recovering my old notes. I have my Joplin files backed up into an external hard drive. I disconnected my hard drive and reconnected it, but now all my Joplin notes are gone on my computer. All the files are still in my hard drive. I made a copy of the whole folder before trying to re-sync Joplin, but none of the note are showing up despite all the notes being present on the hard drive just like before.
Every time I try to sync, it will complete syncing without any files being synced. Then, when I tried importing from where my backup is stored, but all this does is create two notebooks called .resource and . sync. When I import from this backup, the report from the sync says that 2303 notes were synced, but nothing shows up Do you all have any suggestions on what to do?
EDIT: I clarified and added that I attempted to import with no success. And I am adding some pictures to show what is going on on my computer in hopes that this may help.
