Syncing Without the Cloud?

Postby Muad`Dib » Wed Oct 17, 2018 6:07 pm

Is there a way to synchronize CintaNotes files without using a cloud service (for example, either via a local network, or through an external device like a USB drive)? All the references to CintaNotes synchronization that I see rely on SimpleNotes as an intermediary.

Some of the information I want to store is confidential, therefore I do not want to use an online service, since there is always the possibility of the information stored there being stolen (and unlike local storage, I have no control over such theft).

You can protect your notebook with a password (File/Password protection), and then put the encrypted file into a Dropbox or OneDrive-synced folder.
It will be virtually impossible to decrypt the protected notebook file without having the password.

Also you can use a USB-stick for syncing, it will be a bit more secure, but slower, more error prone, and obviously less convenient.
