scatteredbrain 0 Posted July 28, 2010 Share Posted July 28, 2010 Hi. I am curious to know how exactly Evernote calculates what is included in the upload amount that counts towards the user upload amount. I am a new premium user and have noticed an interesting phenomenon:I have been adding quite a few images to a notebook from a screen capture utility. I drag them to the notebook in question and as soon as they are added to the notebook, they are counted as part of the upload amount for my account according to the little status bar at the top of the evernote window. This is without syncing the service as I have my account set to sync manually only. However, if I continue to work with these notes and delete a portion of them(or even all of them if I want to re-upload them for some reason), the upload quota bar does not decrease after the notes are deleted from the notebook. Since these notes are no longer going to be uploaded to my account when I sync, why are they still counted as part of my monthly upload amount? It seems as though Evernote is calculating the “upload” amounts based upon the amount of information added to the notebook, NOT the amount of information that is actually synced to the evernote service. This seems to me to be a bit disingenuous because it means I could theoretically waste my entire upload amount without syncing a single note to the evernote servers just by adding a bunch of notes, having them added to my upload amount, deleting them, and not having them removed from my quota.Am I missing something? If there is a way to make sure that only the information that is synced to the servers be counted towards my pload limit, please let me know. Link to comment
