huib 0 Posted March 22, 2011 Share Posted March 22, 2011 I am used to export my Evernote notes as a safety measure every two weeks.Before the 6th of march my last export was 291 MB size, and the last one of today 462 MB.I added max 50 notes (of 1000 now in total). So the EN file exploded in a few days.Checking the database on Windows gave me an .exb file of 400 MB. I cannot do anything with this info.But on my Mac I found in the "content" folder some huge (and recent) subfolders.Looking further I saw large (15MB or larger!!) files that look like this one :"0209ad2d77897c85be1befc3b0ab8197-alternate"The corresponding notes are never larger than 1 MB in the EN note list.I can open those files with preview, and when I "save them as" on a different location they are only just some 20 K.Is my database corrupted?I already started with an Empty EN and let it sync fron start, but the same size.I also could not view some new notes on my Ipad. The notes show, with "Pdf" in it, but do not open.We are mostly talking about notes consisting of Scansnap PDF files.I use EN on Macs, Windows, Ipad and Windows mobile.---------------e d i t e d:I looked at one single note that I found in the content folder. It is 29 MB large with a huge "alternate file in it.I exported this one record and the sizes stays huge.Can I delete those alternate files?They look like corrupted versions of the original PDF'sHuib Link to comment
