Accidentally deleted Tags

Recommended Posts

Hello Evernote staff,


You have no idea how this program has changed my life and the way I work, I am a scientist dealing with lots of data and the way Evernote works with pictures, notes documents and tags has made my life 100x easier, I have gone paperless and I store everything on evernote now. The first problem I had was yesterday, I was working with a bunch of notes (selected together) and changing their tags, I accidentally deleted a tag I wanted to keep..and there was no way to resurrect it. I tried CTRL-z various times, but to no avail. I had retrive the notes manually and put back the tag on each one, and that took a lot of time. I think would be very useful to put a CTRL-Z option allowing you to go back through your evernote history so has to avoid accidental mistakes

It's happened to me also, accidently deleting tags

As you found out the undo function is limited in recovering from such errors
For recovery, I rely on backups.  I have a weekly full backup and daily incremental backups.

How do you do an evernote backup ?? interesting

You can do this manually; just select notes, right-click, select export565126596_ScreenShot2018-08-23at11_14_16.png.683e5b55c205696f5a7c1fe02d8634a1.png

I've automated this with scripting to run each morning
