(Archived) (Apparently) losing tags (but actually not)


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Just posting about an issue that's bugged me for a while that I just had a realisation about.


There have been a few times where I've experienced lost tagging 'work'. Where I'm sure a tag has a certain number of notes attached to it, but later I see that it only has a few, or none. It's an aggravating situation. It doesn't happen frequently but when it has happened I feel a sense of lost trust in the system (and have to remind myself how great it is otherwise!).



I have an example to show here - BUT on installing Ev5 (to a separate machine) I've just realised my issues isn't an Evernote cloud issue; rather it's a local database issue. Let me explain.


See the following attached image. Here are two tags I know used to have tons of notes attached - I know one had hundreds and the other over a thousand. Now, only a few:




(in case you're wondering I have a health issue that responds well to diet - I tracked what I ate and how I felt for months!)


But these tags have LOST their attached notes. Right? Well! I come to install Ev5 on a separate (virtual) machine and this is what I see:




The notes are back attached to the tags!



Which is actually a great relief, because all that tagging 'work' hasn't been lost!



Is this local DB file corruption do we think? My DB file is 10.6Gb.

Worth logging out of Evernote completely,  backing up your current database on the affected machine (just in case) and deleting / uninstalling / reinstall + redownloading everything,  just to check..  which with your size database it's going to take a while.  Anyone know a way to force Evernote to rebuild the tags database?
