Secret-HQ Posted August 30, 2015 Report Share Posted August 30, 2015 As noted in another thread, I recently reactivated MX Cloud Sync on a profile where I hadn't used it in a long time and had to sort out some mismerged data in my Favorites and saved URL Aliases. In addition, I lost all the text in one of the notes in my SkyNote, and I'm looking for a way to get it back. I thought I'd be able to find the text of that note by backing up my Maxthon appdata folder, restoring it from a backup about a week old, and opening Maxthon — but that results in Maxthon synchronizing SkyNote before I can get in there to look at (and copy) the text. By the time I get SkyNote open, the note I'm trying to retrieve has been synched up to its current (empty) state. My next thought was to disconnect a computer from the internet, temporarily restore the appdata folder from a backup, and launch Maxthon (in order to prevent SkyNote synching before I could get to that note) — but that fails because Maxthon is unable to log in to the account without an internet connection. I was beginning to wonder whether SkyNote saves any data locally, but then I tried reconnecting to the internet, logging into my profile, checking the Auto-login option, and restarting the browser — then disabling the internet connection, shutting down Maxthon, restoring the appdata folder, and restarting Maxthon. From there, I was able to export the data I needed from the old SkyNote to a text file — and confirm that SkyNote does indeed save some data locally (which is nice to know in case there's an emergency). But that leaves me with this question: Where is that SkyNote data stored? My best guess is in the encrypted %profile%/Config/SyncConfig.dat file. Could I have just restored that file instead of the whole folder? It might also be nice to have the ability to import SkyNote data as long as it's encrypted with the same hash — for situations where you might need to restore from a local backup.
