  1. To stick to the one folder that I checked all the dates -- I don't believe I have done any directory maintenance. I probably have put in at least one EN update, it's on automatic and I always say yes. I have definitely not edited the notes -- they are just imported PDF's. I'm working on a PC with Windows 7. I also do automatic updates from Microsoft. Is it possible that some MS update somehow reads as having changed the date in the directory? That seems unlikely given that the files in the directory have recopied on different dates.
  2. Thanks for your quick response -- I've been distracted by Thanksgiving. So here's what I am trying to do -- possibly not using the right terminology. I have 3 platforms -- PC, tablet and phone. I have two kinds of notebooks -- local (only on the PC) and what I was calling public (on all three). None is available to anyone but me at the moment. One stack of notebooks is collected research material, mainly academic journal pdfs but some other things as well. Before EN, they lived in a set of folders on my PC, are connected to a bibliographic management system, and are backed up externally in a couple of different ways. I think of these as my working files. I was attracted to EN initially for its search capability but thought it would be a good way to get web-based backup for these files. I do not want to disrupt my working file system. So I got EN premium, copied my pdfs over several months because of the monthly upload limit. Then I set up a watch folder thing for EN so that when I add things to my working files they would get synced to EN. What has happened is that in the sync process, I now have two copies of every file. One is from the original upload whenever it was and the second one is universally from this November -- but not all on the same day. For example, one folder which I have not accessed in months has 97 entries (which presumably should be 48) -- 7 were created today, 13 on Nov. 25, 10 on Nov. 15, 13 on Nov. 10, and 3 on Nov. 8. The rest were created on May 1. There are four files from May 1 which have not been duplicated. There is one which has three copies -- May 1, Nov. 8 and Nov. 25. I have not been watching closely enough to know if the newly updated files (the Nov. ones in this case) are replacing a previous duplicate that was dated sometime between May and November. I find this all mystifying. Any clarification would be welcome.
  3. Thanks. I do use the import function. My only question is why it stops with two copies. Why doesn't it just replicate them infinitely?
  4. Hi. I am a relative newbie and am confused about syncing. I am an EN premium user and want to use EN to backup (one of many backups) of a bunch of PDFs I am using for academic research. They live in a public EN notebook so I can access them from multiple platforms. When I run a sync some of them are being duplicated so there are two (and sometimes three) identical versions on the web which are now propagated back to my desktop. I can't discern a pattern for which ones are being copied over or why. It definitely has nothing to do with whether I have looked at them recently or not. Does this happen to anyone else? Can you tell me how to make it stop?
  5. I can't get EN to sync from my laptop. I haven't tried for a long time because I wasn't interested in that part of EN. However, I just got a smartphone and would like to have access to some stuff from it. I reinstalled EN but that hasn't helped. I found a forum post that suggested that internet explorer was offline, so I checked that, but it works fine. I have posted the last activity log lines below.
