Evernote Import Folder With Google Drive File Stream


Recommended Posts

Hello!

I have a problem with Evernote failing to import files from Google Drive File Stream. The drive is listed as mounted when I use the "Import Folders" tool inside Evernote, but it's as if Evernote does not see the txt files inside. The only way I've gotten it to work (sometimes) is by clicking into the path name when specifying the import folder. This will occasionally force Evernote to sync up and load the txt files.

All files are available offline, as are their parent folders (the path is G:/Notes/lhendrick/Imports/). Any help or insights are greatly appreciated!

Hi.  There's general help information here - How to create import folders in Evernote for Windows

Evernote doesn't always play well with network drives and folders - is it possible to move or copy those files to an import folder on your local hard drive?  If it helps,  I have used this utility to move files into Import folders - https://lifehacker.com/341950/belvedere-automates-your-self-cleaning-pc

Are you expecting the import functionality to automatically import files that are already there? As far as I know, the import process only happens on new files that are added to the import folder after it's been added via Options.

Yeah - sorry;  missed that detail.  One of the set-up options is to delete or leave imported files.  Obviously if a file is imported and left in the folder,  it won't be imported again even (AFAIK) if altered later.  That's a potential source of confusion that makes me always recommend that the option be set to 'delete'.  Better to reopen the file from the note,  than from that folder.
