Level 5* GrumpyMonkey 4,315 Posted August 4, 2013 Level 5* Share Posted August 4, 2013 One Way to KO your AccountIf you want to knock out your account, try moving 9,000+ notes from one notebook to another. My computer has been trying to accomplish this task since 8:30 this morning. It is 5:30 in the evening and the task is finally getting close to finished. This means that I have been unable to do anything with my Evernote account for about 9 hours now. I cannot make new notes, I cannot edit old ones, I cannot search for anything, and the note counts are quite wild as well (see screenshot).I knew it was going to be bad, so I took precautions (I am using another app today), but I am still surprised at how long this is taking to finish.My recommendation to other users would be NOT to move a large number of notes (no matter how small/large they are) unless you have many hours to spare (maybe do this overnight).My recommendation to the Evernote team would be to solve this problem, because people with large databases tend to move a lot of stuff around, and this kind of behavior can not only be devastating for productivity, but it is also entirely unexpected for users who haven't tried to perform this kind of operation in the past. Until the speed improves, you may want to flash a warning message: "Approximate time to complete process: 9 hours. During this time, you will not be able to use your Evernote account."https://www.evernote.com/shard/s74/sh/ac9b424b-2708-41bb-8d00-d146bb65c072/b8e9e374ed18c43122b1d36548422bf8 Link to comment
