WDanW 3 Posted September 15, 2012 Share Posted September 15, 2012 Earlier this week I was editing a good deal of important text (list of maintenance steps in a project) in a note. After each important set of changes I ran Sync. At one point I noticed a few lines text were suddenly missing. (This is an unrelated bug that I have occasionally experienced with the Windows EverNote client - I did not delete or overwrite this text). Regardless of how this text was removed, I wanted to review previous versions to recover the missing text.The Note History, ironically, provided me almost no real history. Looking at this important note, I saw the most recent version and the previous version was from 4 days before. For this note, almost all days had one backup; a very few days had two backups, tops. None of my recent sync'd versions were present.Where did all the sync'd versions go? They are in the log but not accessible in the history. Why bother providing sync/history functionality if a user can't get to those sync'd versions? I lost important text that I cannot easily recreate. I lost confidence that Evernote is actually saving my work (it certainly was losing my work because of that other bug). I lost hours in recreating the work and then lost a day, waiting for Evernote support to get back to me with the news that they couldn't get my text back. (My client lost confidence in me as the work I was supposed to deliver was 24 hours late as a result of this fiasco). I now will probably will lose many more hours moving over to Google Docs, which actually saves your revisions.I know that every person values different functionality differently, but if Evernote isn't consistently saving and storing the content you are working on, what's the point of all of these plug-ins, Moleskin partnerships, etc? The most important reason I'm paying for Premium is for History to store my actual content; if that doesn't work I have to move elsewhere.Can anyone tell me if Evernote plans on fixing it's note history/version functionality to show the actual sync'd versions and not a version we have no control over?-Dan Link to comment
