Notes & Settings, Interim Note Changes files
These two files constitute the authoritative record of which notes exist in Notational Velocity, and should never be removed from the notes folder.
In backing up Notational Velocity, these files should always be preserved.
Notes & Settings
This file is the effective notes “database”. It holds all Simplenote and text file metadata, styles, tags, and per-database settings. It is re-saved periodically and upon quitting, if changes were made.
This is Notational Velocity’s write-ahead log file. As notes are edited, changes are appended to it, guaranteeing durability in the event of a crash. It is removed automatically upon successfully writing the Notes & Settings file.
