khead 2 Posted January 10, 2015 Share Posted January 10, 2015 Hello, I'm a long time EN user but in no way an expert particularly when it comes to transferring EN files/notes. I'm in a real pickle and would greatly appreciate any help or wisdom anyone might lend me. Here is my situation: I got a new Win8 computer...installed EN, and synced. FORGOT that I had one local notebook of critical information (yeah, I know), so I went and uninstalled EN from the old Win8 machine (oops, I know). Now I have all my synced notes but of course none of the local notes on my new computer, and I am in a quandary as to the best way to get them back since EN was uninstalled from the old machine. I have my EN data in the following ways: I have a full .enex file of the entire OLD note database (1 month old, all local and synced notes), which is readily accessible on a flash drive. Should this be my first option? I'm pretty sure that have a backup of all my data files from the OLD machine, using Windows File History (also 1 month old, same backup time). But I need to get the old computer back in a day or so and hook up my external drive to verify that the evernote files are there (ebx, I think?). If yes, then what? I also have a local subdirectory that has pdf's of 90%+ of my local notes (scansnap profile dumps them there when scanned and also puts into EN). What are my best options to recover my local notebook and maintain current synced notes and notebooks? If anyone could provide a step-wise sequence or recommend what you would do to recover under this scenario, I would be ever so grateful!! Of course none of you would uninstall EN before getting all local notes transferred in the first place Thank you for any help or recommendations you might provide!! Kind Regard Link to comment
