What if I don't need to Sync?


Recommended Posts

I'm relatively new to Evernote and am very happy with it's performance. I do, however, have an issue. I don't need to sync over multiple devices - Just need to organize, tag, note about 2500 PDF files on a single computer. Early on in my testing it for my use I received a pop-up notification that I had reached my monthly limit - about 60mb I believe and that if I wanted to be able to sync I'd have to upgrade. I don't need to sync - but that error/pop-up seems to stop my ability to tag/note any further files until I do upgrade.

Do I have to upgrade to be able to use the product on one machine with lots of files? if I do NOT have to upgrade - is there a work around so that I can continue testing to ensure Evernote will be effective for our needs?

Thanks.

Are you using notebooks defined as local (i.e. non-sync'd)?
Do you have auto syncing turned off?

... not sure if I have notebooks defined as local...  sorry...

I'm thinking thats important if you don't want the notes syncd

In Evernote Windows, you can right click the notebook for its properties

The name of local notebooks are grey.

Sync'd notebooks are black

 

The newest beta version allows you to >File >New Notebook or >File >New Local Notebook

I believe the older versions required you to right click on the top icon above your notebooks. It has a black notebook icon with the word Notebooks.

OK - I'll keep searching on how to define notebooks as local - thanks

I'd also recommend having a backup strategy, for example a periodic export to a .enex file

With no syncing, you can't count on the EN servers for recovery

@JHollard

If Windows, go to File - New Local Notebook to create a local notebook.  And as per @DTLow, create a backup of your local notebooks at a frequency that is comfortable for you.  I would recommend the ENEX export option.

EDIT:  Oops just realized the above is a repeat of @jbenson2.
