I’m afraid the Dropbox data will still include the deletions you made, so bringing that back will just delete the data again.
The good news is that all the original data is still there. It’s just tricky to get it back again. It’s really too technical.
If you would like us to get your data back out, it is possible, but you would have to be prepared to send all your library data to us.
If that is not possible, there is a tool that can get data back, but it works one note at a time. It could take a while to get the data back that way, but if you want to try it, here are the details.
- On the Mac, quit Agenda
- Run the LibraryReverter tool you can download from https://downloads.agenda.com/LibraryReverter.zip
- Navigate to, and select, this folder:
There is a single space after “Group”, but no other spaces.
(If you can’t find it, use CMD-SHIFT-G and copy the whole file path in.)
- Select the project in the list you wish to restore content for
- Select either a specific note or all notes for that project
- Select the time from which you want to restore any deleted content or notes (this means anything deleted after the time you select should reappear)
- Click on restore
- Launch Agenda. The deleted content should appear again (this can take up to 30s). It’s possible some notes will be in the Trash, if you moved them there before deleting them completely.
Please note that all we can do is undelete any paragraphs and notes, which means some data may appear that was originally deleted on purpose. For example, if I first delete a few paragraphs in a note, then add a new line. When I now restore using this tool you will see all of the paragraphs reappear. This can mean that you might have to do some cleanup and editing to get the note all back in the right shape. But at least the content should be back.
Again, the offer still stands for us to “fix” your data, but it would require sending it to us. Let us know if you want to do this.
