Radiophile 16 Posted February 21, 2017 Share Posted February 21, 2017 Woe is me. Read it and weep: I am in the process of moving from Max OS X to Windows 10. I already synced my EN cloud stuff with my newly installed Windows EN app, but needed to move a local notebook from Mac to Win. I exported the 378 local notes in my local notebook to a .enex file and proceeded to import them into the Win client. I started the import process in the local notebook I had just created in Win EN, but unexpectedly it put the imported notes in an Imported Notes notebook that it created. So I selected all the notes in the Imported Notebook and said to move them to the local notebook. It seemed to take a long time, and finally I noticed that it had moved ALL my notes (all 11,000 of them, in lots of different online notebooks) to my local notebook. All my other notebooks were empty, and the local notebook contained all my notes. And it was already in the process of syncing all this to the EN cloud. As quick as I could I ended the EN process with Task Manager. Now I'm stuck. I have a ruined version of my database in the cloud, one that every client I have will want to sync to. I have a perfect set of notes on my Mac, which hasn't been connected to the Internet during all this. Even if it would work, I can't transfer my Mac database to the PC; the file structure is completely different. What options do I have at this point? 1. Delete all my notes in the Win EN client. Let it sync with the cloud, which would delete all my notes everywhere except on the Mac. Export each of my 200-or-so notebooks from the Mac client, then while keeping the Win client offline, import each notebook into it, then connect to the Internet and let it sync. Would this work, since the importing into the Win client would be the most recent action? 2. Somehow (method unknown), make my Mac EN a "master copy" that will override all other EN data in the cloud, and let the Mac sync to the cloud. Perhaps I could accomplish this by opening EN for the Web and deleting all the notes there. But no, since that would be the most recent action, I think that would cause EN to delete all notes on any and all clients connected later. 3. Let the sync complete, and then manually examine each note and put it, one by one, into the right notebook. I can't imagine how many days or weeks this would take. I hope I've missed something. Help, please. John P.S. While reading this over before posting, I realized I had another Win client running on another PC. Hoping against hope that EN wasn't running there, I ran down to its location. EN wasn't running, so I disabled the PC's Internet connection. When I started EN, I found that some background process must have been doing its job. Most of my notebooks were empty and I had only 1,800 total notes listed. (Only 1,800 left because the others had already been moved out of the cloud to my local notebook on the other Win PC. Link to comment
