    Backup question

    I've seen that; however I have quite a lot of content that is in local notebooks, which is why I'm not going down the rely-on-EN-sync route. I guess my concern is how much hassle is going to be involved - am I going to lose notebook structure etc? - and I'm looking for reassurance that I've got the right files, given that they're not where I'd expected to find them.
  2. 1. Have I found the right files? On a Mac. In: Macintosh HD > Users > My Mac Username > Library > Containers > com.evernote Evernote > Data > Library > Application Support > Evernote > accounts > Evernote > *here there are two sets of data matching the Evernote usernames for two accounts* 2. If i copy those to somewhere else (e.g. dropbox), will I be able to drop them back into a new installation of Evernote on the same machine, or is it more complicated than that? Will this maintain my notebook structure, preferences, etc? 3. I'm guessing from what I've read and where I've found those files that my installation is from the App Store rather than the Evernote website - have I got that right? 4. If (3) is correct, can I install the website version over the old one, or do I have to delete the old one (and do I have to clean anything else up?) and install the new one? I know I can export all files, I know that will lose my notebook structure, which is fairly complex, so I'd rather not have to recreate it. I do have Time Machine backups anyway, but suspect that doesn't help if I'm installing a new/different version? Thanks! Edit to add: I found this: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/40541-where-is-the-local-copy-of-my-evernote-notes-on-my-computer/ - which suggests that the file directory structure above is what you'd expect to find on an iMac Fusion drive - not even sure what that is, but I've a Macbook Air with a SSD so unclear whether that applies.
  3. Not ignoring this, just still experimenting. It seems to depend on a) what kind of image it is; how I move the note; c) how ENU2 moves the note. Still working on figuring out exactly which combinations work and which don't.
  4. When I put a note into a shared notebook, and that note is picked up by the second user, and they move the note to a local notebook, any images within the note are lost. Possibly I'm missing something. Here's the workflow: - I create a note for information about a project. When the project is complete, I move that note to a shared notebook. - EN User 2, with whom I'm sharing the notebook, with syncs and therefore gets the notes - so far, so good: the notes are intact, including the images. - ENU2 then moves the notes to a local notebook in his EN. I no longer need these notes (or want them in my EN). Here's the problem: some of the images in the notes disappear when ENU2 moves the note to a local notebook. Extra info: If ENU2 moves the note back to the shared notebook, the lost images do not reappear. The note reappears in my notebook, but the lost images do not. Any idea how we can prevent the loss of these images? Thanks in advance.
