jptl 0 Posted January 30, 2012 Share Posted January 30, 2012 I've been using the free version of Evernote for a while now and was considering upgrading to Premium..however a recent data loss has me concerned about the reliability of this application.I use Evernote over three platforms: Mac; Windows and Palm Pre 2. My Windows 7 desktop & my Mac are on the same network. Evernote starts up automatically and supposedly runs/syncs in the background while these devices are on. Maybe that's the problem with my data loss - I don't know.Yesterday I was on the road and needed to edit the text in an existing note on my Pre. I thought that I'd done everything properly (pressed the little folder icon and got the prompt "pending uploads").Today I opened Evernote from my Windows desktop and found that the changes that I'd made from my Pre were missing. No big deal, as this was data from yesterday - data that I could re-enter.But what was much more concerning was that numerous text edits from the past several days are also missing. It's like my account was rolled back to two weeks ago.When I add new data from my desktop and/or make edits, I make sure that I click "Sync", and confirm the changes as being made. I also see a periodic popup on my Windows desktop indicating that Evernote has synced. I assume that this is an automatic sync feature. Seeing this gave me the confidence that my data had been updated and stored.So where are the numerous edits that I've made over the past several days? This was very important information....some of which I may not be able to recover.I'm very concerned about this data loss.If anyone can shed some light on this, that would be much appreciated.Thanks,J.P.
