Evernote triggering access to network share



Whenever I'm away from work, which means I can't connect to the network volumes listed in the Login Items in System Preferences, Evernote won't start until after I get several system dialogs saying "There was a problem connecting to the server "myservername"." The same dialog boxes also appear when I try to access Evernote's Preferences, meaning I have to wait a couple minutes and dismiss several dialog boxes.


This is a recent phenomenon, only occurring within the last week. I've always had the network volumes listed in my Login Items, so when at home, I'd only get a couple of the dialog boxes when I first login at home. That's expected though.


The system dialogs don't occur at work because I'm able to connect to the network volumes upon login.


Why would Evernote need to access a network volume?


I'm running version 5.5.1 (402628 Direct) on OS X 10.9.2.

A little more info on this. If I'm at work, and I eject the network volume, the volume will automatically remount when I try to open Evernote's preferences, or when I quit and restart Evernote.

I have the exact same issue. Don't know why evernote wants to connect to a network volume as all notes are kept in the cloud or locally on my mac. When my personal NAS is not connected it takes minutes before I'm able to use Evernote.


Using exact same versions: OS X 10.9.2 and Evernote 5.5.1 (402628 Direct)

Any fix to this issue?


I have the same problem happening with my Evernote for the past week. I don't remember making any reference to my NAS from Evernote.


OSX 10.9.2

Evernote 5.5.1

I'm having this same problem on a Mac OSX 10.7.5 with EN 5.5.1 EN tries to connect to servers no longer available and I get a series of popup error windows. How do I configure EN to remove those connections?

For me I discovered my issue was caused from my mapped network drives.


I went to System Preferences --> Users & Groups --> Login Items, and deleted the mapped locations. Haven't looked at how to go about adding them again but at least EN boots quick.
