I accidentally deleted a note from my notebook.  Can I get it back?  If so, how?

I'm sure I'm being stupid but:  Evernote trash, or on my computer?

 

I can't find anything in Evernote that is labeled "trash"--where do I find it?

Which Evernote client are you using (Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, etc.)?

I've just done the same thing and deleted a note by accident. I'm on Evernote for Mac and I don't see a Trash button anywhere. Please help!

Hello everyone, I too stressed out this morning but then found the answer. In any of the clients (Mac, PC, iPhone, Android) go to the Notebooks tab and scroll to the bottom. You'll see the trash folder there and can pick anything out of it.

Thanks a lot! Evernote should really consider making the Trash button more conspicuous.

Hi. All.

If you delete a note and empty the trash, you can still recover chunks of it by hexediting the database file of your local client. This is what I've done on a win8 client database file; to recover partially a note that was oddily chopped.

Hope it helps.

Regards.

I'm not sure what "oddily chopped" is, but this does not appear to be related to the thread.  You seem to be addressing notes that were deleted (in the trash) & then the trash emptied.  I don't see that scenario posted in any of the above posts.

If only a very old version exists in the trash, it would seem you modified it on a device that did not sync.  Perhaps you can find a more current version on the device you were using.  I would also suggest you use a desktop client (Mac/Windows) so you can keep regular backups.

In your Evernote click on notebooks in the side bar, scroll to the bottom and there you will see trash.

slight oddity (bug?) on scrolling down on the mac client under Notebooks tab: i couldn't see Trash until I resized the window and refreshed the tab by clicking twice.  initially, it just stopped at however many notebooks filled the vertical column on the left.
