Hey there you guys. How are you? How are you doing today?

I have reviewed Rednotebook before here on this blog. As a great journal and note taking software.
I have been using it for years now and it hasn’t failed me once!

Today we will see how to backup the journal folder (where you kept your notes) and restore it!
And how to share this awesome software across systems on the same computer (Dual Boot)

Since RedNoteBook has become an important tool of mine. I needed to backup and restore my notes in case something happened. I tried using the Zip folder but that failed badly and I lost tons of data!

Until I came up with a really easy fix!

By default the directory for rednotebook on Windows (7, 8 ,8.1) is:
“C:Users<User Name .rednotebook

And on Linux is: “/home/<User Name /.rednotebook/”.

From the main interface click File Open to change the directory to the one you created

Navigate to the folder where you put the “Rednotebook” folder (Restoring notes)

Go inside the folder and choose “Data

You will find the notes you already entered.

Click OK and you are done! Make sure to do it on both systems and select the same folder for both systems. And it’s very important to choose a folder both Linux and Windows can “See”.
How did you like the post? I hope you find it useful. Please leave a comment!!

I use RedNotebook in Linux. I agree, it is fantastic. I do not know what I would do without it. I started keeping a backup copy in Dropbox that stays synced with all my devices. It works well and I am able to add entries from any of my devices, as well.

Essentially, you do the same thing using Dropbox (or any cloud drive client). Once set up there is no chance for data loss. Great article, thanks!

I am happy i came across your journal on how you were able to recover your files. I almost thought that there was no other way to restore my backup files. This info was helpful
