Evernote Windows - recover lost offline note...


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I just had the most troubling thing happening to me...

Without me seeing my domain account was instead of the c:\users\....\evernote\databases using c:\temp\users\......\evernote\databases to save the notes file.

I also did not synchronize the contents I wrote for 2 weeks and..suprise reboot -> all lost

I used a deleted file recovery software and got back 3 different versions of .exb files but unfortunately if I copy them to the databases directory (one at a time + testing of course), then opening Evernote leads to a message saying: can't create table.

I do not have many notes in there (4-5 Mb are the recovered files) but those few notes are quite important.

Any idea if there is any way / evernote tool that might help recover the contents from one of those recovered .exb files ? (they have to have something inside of them)

I also emailed support in the meantime but the first reply I got so far was a copy-paste saying how to restore notes (+export them to a file) and was ignoring in fact most of what I wrote in my e-mail :) guess they do receive a large number of similar issues and so someone skipped my message contents.

Can someone please give me a saving solution ?

I am really sad with what happened and it was my fault for not having synced.

Hey, it might sound bad reviving an old topic, but I'd like to know any options concerning this kind of issue. I was in the middle of syncing last night and my computer suddenly turned off. When I got into Evernote again, I got the ERROR: CANT_CREATE_TABLE, so I followed Jefito's advice here: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/19667-cant-create-table/. Evernote is working all right, but I'd like to know if there is a way I can get the notes that I wasn't able to sync last night (and are probably somewhere in the "corrupted" .exb file). Hope for a reply soon. Thanks :D
