EvernoteUser-EU 4 Posted January 6, 2015 Share Posted January 6, 2015 Hi there! I am experiencing an intriguing Sync issue with my Evernote Desktop Client for Windows. I'll start with the background first. Background:I started using Evernote on my Tablet first. Then, a few days back, I started using my Windows PC so I installed Evernote on my PC as well. In the desktop client, I discovered the 'Notebook Stack' feature which I never found in my Android version of Evernote. This feature it appealed to me though and I created a couple of notebook stacks. But till this time, my Desktop Client has still not synced fully with the Evernote Servers...not fully synced in the sense that while it had replicated the "Notebook Structure" on the desktop client, it is still in the process of fetching my notes. I created 2 notebook stacks. Simultaneously, I also drag-dropped my notebooks into these stacks. Mind that my notes are still being fetched from the Evernote servers. After some time, I saw that all my efforts of arranging my notebooks into these stacks were washed away as the Notebooks were back to their usual "unarranged" structure. After some browsing through the forum, I assumed that the problem was probably caused by the fact that the notes being fetched in the background from the Evernote Servers are used to the earlier "unarranged" structure. And since then, I am following a policy of neither changing the notebook structure, nor modifying any of my existing notes till the time the sync is complete. However, I have not stopped creating new notes via my Desktop Client. Now, the issue is that some of the notes that I created in the past few days (via the desktop client) are nowhere to be seen in my Desktop client. This set off the alarm bells for me! So I immediately logged in to the Evernote Web Client. To my relief, all those notes which I can no longer see on my Desktop Client are there in the Web Client! Although I took a big sigh of relief, could the community please help me with the following questions?Since the notes are visible in the Web Client, can I rest assured that they are safe & secure and that they'll eventually be reflected in my desktop client again? What really could have happened here? I mean I created those notes through my Desktop client but they aren't reflected there. However, they are reflected perfectly fine as I'd expect them to be in the Web Client. All of my sync cycles till date have ended as failures. But all of them seem to be contributing little by little to bringing my desktop client up-to-date with the Evernote Servers. Are these Sync failures normal behavior? Am I correct when I assume that the reason my notebook structure reverted back to its "unstructured" form is because the notes being fetched from Evernote Servers aren't used to the "Stacked" notebook structure that I created in my Desktop Client and so, the desktop client reverted back to the older "unstructured" form in order to be able to receive these notes? And so, I should wait till all my notes are synced before I create the "Stacked" notebook structure again? Lastly, I see that the time period of the sync cycles is small with none of them running beyond 2-3 minutes. Would these cycles run longer if I increase the gap between these cycles to say 30 minutes? I tried setting it to 10 minutes (instead of the usual 5 minutes) but the cycles don't seem to be lengthening. Link to comment
