Can I run both Evernote 10 and Legacy at the same time?


Recommended Posts

From what I'm reading, there are some huge issues with Evernote 10 that sounds like problems to me. I won't rehash them here, but I wanted to know...

Can I run v10 along with my current Windows (6.25.1) version? How does the new version save the note files locally? Is it different? Will the new one ***** up the legacy version?

My note file on my PC is 4.7GB...will that get duplicated or moved or altered in some way that I can't get back?

Yes, you can install the Legacy version to run along with v10

v10 is a completely new local storage structure
Yes, total storage will be duplicated
No, legacy data should not be impacted - warning v10 data will not include Local Notebooks

Can someone confirm that as of 7/5/2021 Legacy and v10 can still be run on the same machine. In case it currently matters I am currently running only v10.

Unlike many others in the forums I'm actually happy overall with 10, as well as the latest mobile and tablet versions. However due a few of the v10 issues it would be quite handy to be able to run either on as needed.

Thank You

Confirmed - no problem running both products on a Mac

Win 10 - Every time I try starting Evernote Legacy, Evernote 10 starts up and goes haywire. It keeps flashing up a screen saying "Failed to import notes", over and over. The only way out seems to be to get the Legacy version closed. This has happened over the past month or so, including with the latest EN build just installed today. I haven't seen any other reports of this problem so assume there must be something odd about my setup. I have 35K notes, mostly in one Notebook, the default notebook set for the recently implemented Import Folders option. There is only one small text file currently in my Import Folder. 

 Any ideas?

There seems to be a dependency in the install sequence. V10 should be installed first. My procedure would be:

Uninstall … both clients.

If you have any local notebooks, take care of them. When uninstalling make sure all data files are gone as well. The safest way to do it is by an uninstaller, like Revo Uninstaller.

Then restart your computer.

Install EN, v10 client first. Use the direct download from the EN website. Log in, let the    initial sync run. Test it a little to make sure it works.

Then install legacy from this source:

Open it the first time with v10 closed. Log in, sync, test it a little.
 
Now try both together.

Can‘t tell for sure it works with Windows. Did work on a Mac.

Thanks for the suggestion. It's pretty drastic sounding and something I'd rather avoid having to do. I was mainly just using EN Legacy to be able to export the most recent few weeks of notes, typically a couple hundred or so. I've reset the limit in EN 10 from 50 to 500 and will try exporting from v10 next time - will see how that goes.

I have a Professional (private) account running in the Legacy version (Windows desktop - Evernote 6.25)

Now my office subscribed to Evernote Teams and:

1. private and business accounts will run separately

2. in the office we will start Evernote Teams from scratch - no import from private accounts intended.

My question: can I run my private account in Evernote Legacy and have my Teams account installed in the new Evernote 10?

Thanks!

Thank you @PinkElephant

I currently have Legacy running. I understand that I have to uninstall Legacy first, then install Evernote 10 (teams account) and then reinstall Evernote legacy (private account).

I'll try it.
