Notes disappeared after upgrading Windows Program - Evernote for Windows GA

Not heard that one before - have you tried logging out and back in and restarting your computer?


If you have 'lost' a view of some notes,  you could try renaming the database folder and rebuilding it from the server,  though that will take a little while if you have lots of notes.


More information available if you need it...

Logging off an in didnt help.


Interestingly, on the left side, notebook explorer, I see that there are right number of notes inside the folders/projects. When I click on them, on the right side it says, "sorry, no notes to display".


How do you "rename the database folder and rebuild it from the server,"?

If you have unsynced notes and/ or local notebooks,  Export the notes/ notebooks to ENEX  files (one per notebook) and keep that file/ those files safe.


Then File > Exit Evernote and go to the database folder in Explorer:  C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Evernote\Evernote\Databases


Rename this to Databases.old


Restart Evernote


Wait for folder to be rebuilt (can take a while if you have lots of notes)


Import any previously exported notes


Carry on...

I have discovered this issue too. I updated Evernote a couple of days ago. Overnight all my notes created after 15 January 2015 have disappeared. They are still on the web client though, and Android app.

(as I write the web view is no longer available - for maintenance). Is this a common problem?

What gazumped suggested seems to work for me - the resyncing is still going on. Thanks...


However, this is time consuming.


Apparently, the new build introduced a bug. Hopefully Evernote resolves it in the next drop.
