(Archived) What happens when a notebook is unshared?

Recommended Posts

For those not aware, it is possible to search for shared notebooks with your favorite search engine.

I have found a number of useful shared notebooks. What happens if the owner decides to stop sharing? Do they immediately vanish from my Evernote client or are they stored on my hard drive?

Turns out a shard is not a shared notebook - see http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=28086 and below..

OK - crashed and burned; I totally agree it's not possible to find those long-established sites by searching. It's not possible to search site:http://www.evernote.com/pub/ to get any results anyway. If those are the public shared sites, what comes up under site:http://www.evernote.com/shard/ ?? There's 69,200 of those today as against 67,000 and change when I last looked. Something seems to be leaking out into the big wide world...

-that was me in the other thread, and I got the numbers wrong - the total hits seems to be pretty constant.

The jury's still out on what generates a shard, and no-one's jumped in yet to trumpet an answer.. but to answer your query I did my own testing and once you unshare a notebook it drops off the radar immediately.

Thanks. I wasn't sure if I could share a notebook with myself so I didn't try that. It did cross my mind though.

So lesson here. If you find some good useful information in a shared notebook, copy it to your own notebook.
