Export to attached backup drive: "Permission denied"

Recommended Posts



Looking to backup some of my ENote folders to an attached drive on my IMac.

Receiving this error: "The operation couldn’t be completed. Permission denied"


any advise appreciated.

You might try the export to your internal drive as a test.


What versions of EN Mac and Mac OS are you running?

How did you try to create the backup?  Detailed steps please.


BTW, by "folders" do you mean "Notebooks"?  Evernote doesn't have folders.

Turns out it was a unique error to the specific backup drive (A) and not to others (B,C) that are attached.... so no longer an issue.

I was "right clicking" the "Notebook" and then "exporting notes". 


Your post reminded me to try another drive..thx.
