bbrener 0 Posted January 4, 2012 Share Posted January 4, 2012 There is a really, really simple way to move (relocate) the Evernote database in Windows. It took me a while to figure out but seems like people are making it too complicated.If you want your database on a stick; or on a data drive or relocate due to storage contraints there is an easy way if you are willing to edit the registry. Do the following:* Close Evernote* Copy or restore your database with any standard tool to a desired location (keep the old data as a precaution)* Open Regedit and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareEvernote* Export that key as a backup in case things go wrong.* There are 3 keys involved:EvernotePathAutoUpdateCacheCurrentXMLAutoUpdateCacheCurrentRN* Modify them to your new directory*Restart EvernoteVoila!Note that this method has allowed me to use the same Evernote database in 2 different User Profiles on the same PC. I switch backwards and forwards seamlessly.Usual caveats about editing the registry etc. This method enables you to go bak to the way you were if there is an issue. Link to comment
