patternphreak 0 Posted May 9, 2013 Share Posted May 9, 2013 Using evernote 220.127.116.1136 (most recent update) on a Windows 7 desktop. I was cleaning up some stack and folders organization today when the unthinkable happened. I'm waiting patiently for the husband (sysop) to get home, but can't for the life of me figure out what I did. I noticed that there were about 800 (as memory serves) files in the trash, made a mental note to clean that up, and continued to move several files and folders so that the "stacks" could best be organized. Looked at trash again and there were 2K+ files. Yes, that should have been my cue to step away from the housekeeping and figure out what was going on. But at that moment, I was thinking: "Well, maybe I was wrong about it being 800." I looked at a few of the "deleted files" and they matched files I had recently merged. Again, cringeworthy assumption on my part was that since the merged files were still visibly there in my organizational tree - I could expand the stack and get to the file in the folder - that what was in the trash was redundant. NO. Somehow, evidently, the same copy as was in the trash was also what was showing in the files, and when I right clicked on the trash and clicked on "empty trash", that also empied all my notes. And then running around like a chicken with my head cut off -- well, searching for answers in the knowledge base -- I inadvertently left Evernote open. And it synced. ------ I have Seagate desktop backup. I have backblaze. I am reasonably assured that I can restore the ENEX file Seagate saved last night per the Evernote knowledge base article on backing up and restoring Evernote Data under Windows. (I'm just waiting on hubbie so he can look over shoulder of someone now questioning her own ability to press "enter".) I'm still posting here, because having searched the knowledge base and the forum, I'm not finding any exact repeat related of my particular bug/corruption/stupidity issue. I'm wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue with Evernote's trash under Windows, also, what would be a better procedure than the above-related idiocy, should Evernote go (apparently) wonk again with the trash?
