Re: Is it safe to sync the hidden .zim folder across machines?



Hi Jake! 

You can syncing that folder if you use shared notebooks (default Zim
notebooks are shared), there are not causing any problems, but if you
use unshared notebooks, you should blacklisted the index.db file in
Nextcloud Client. 

I don't do that. I'm using Nextcloud for synchronizing my Zim notebooks,
but I don't use shared notebooks (in the notebook.zim file shared option
sets to False), so my .zim folders contain not only state.conf file but
the index.db cache file, which can cause some strange behaviour when I
was synced. Constant wiriting of cache file caused problems with syncing
and slowing down the Zim itself.

> According to https://zim-wiki.org/manual/FAQ.html [1], it is not necessary to include the hidden .zim folder when backing up notebooks or syncing notebooks across machines. But is it safe to include this folder anyway, or will it break things? In my case I am syncing a notebook between multiple computers using Nextcloud.
