I am in panic - I want to export my notes but cannot


Recommended Posts

I have used Evernote for about 10 years now. With the latest version I decided to get out of Evernote and into Google Drive.

Thinking I could export my notes (some 16,000) in 150 or so notebooks I got a very long nose because I can only export 50 at a time. On top of that the app is now a very slow web page with a nice boarder around saying Evernote....

Needless to say, one cannot use a software application that hijack data this way, imagine that Evernote goes out of business. 

I tried Zapire but can only get it to work with new notes. I want everything out and into a file of some sort so that I own my data.

How do I get all my note out in some kind of logic fashion, and how can one mix attached files with notes.

This is tricky and any help and suggestions are very welcome.

As you noticed Version 10 has a 50 note restriction when selecting notes
We're told this limit is temporary
Notebooks can be exported with no note limit

Personally, I'm using the Legacy product - there's no restriction

Warning: The export feature drops notebook information
                 Some users do separate exports for each notebook

Warning: Large .enex export files sometimes cause problems when imported

Thank you. The 50 note limited is properly because it is a webpage being loaded, and they are trying to figure out how to load more and faster.

If i export the ENEX file how do i get data out of it?  I just dont get it.

.enex format is used by Evernote as a export/import tool

As I mentioned, I use the Legacy product
I use the html format for my backups - each note is exported to a single file
The notes are readable by any browser app

OK thank you for letting me know. If i change to legacy version, do I need to download all notes again - some 30 GB 😞 before I can export the heck out of Evernote.

A download should not be necessary
When you upgraded to Version 10, your legacy database was not deleted
