hi there, thanks for replying. i do not have a trash notebook on ipad - i am looking at it now could it be because i have a free acct not "premium" ? In the Evernote home screen, tap "notebooks" (enable that from Evernote settings>customize homescreen>notebooks if it isn't already enabled) - i went here and i says option to show notes and notebooks - both are on In the list of notebooks, the very last notebook should be called "Trash" (you may need to scroll depending on how many notebooks you have). - i only have 2 notebooks so it would be clear and it is not there / what more can i do ? i have sent a help request to customer services as I do not have a copy of the info i lost - but no response yet.
