  1. Yes, I have tried everything. Thank you for the idea though.
  2. You’re right, as I make clear at the beginning of my post I am not pointing fingers and it is possible that I have done it myself. That being said it is a very frustrating experience which cost me three hours today trying to restore back up, Importing notes etc. all without getting closer :-(
  3. So, I got an old backup restored but it is not there...I have en even older backup at home I will try with later.
  4. OK, than you for the anser. Lets say I restore a the old database from Timemachine and get Evernote running again, and find my old notes... what then happen when I start syncing, with the old notes be added again and the notes created since the backup downloaded to Evernote? Also, can you tell me what files I need to get.
  5. Dear Evernoter's Due to this incident: I would like to go back in my backups and see if I can restore old motes. I have the timemachine backup for the longest time. Is it possible to restore individual folders from TimeMachine? If not, it it possible to restore Evernote to another location on my computer and then open it to find the missing notes. I am really in trouble right now. Big trouble as a matter of fact.
  6. Hi DTLow, I create folders called Archiving - sale, Archiving - Marketing etc. It's just a normal folder with the word archived in front. Everything has bee locally synced on all devices (Mac, iOS, Android and iPAD). Excuse my poor initial explanation.
  7. DISCLAIMER: I am fully aware I could have deleted the notes myself so I am not pointing fingers. I am just interested in knowing if others have had the same experience as I have. Today I was looking for notes in an archiving folder I seldom use. It turned out that the folder was empty. Next I checked 3 other archiving folders - all empty. I then proceeded to the trash folder to see if the notes were there - negative. I cannot say with 100% certainty that I did not delte the notes, but as of this writing 3 archiving folders have no notes and the notes are not not in the deleted folder either. That means I should have 1. deleted 50 or 100 notes in 3 folders (150 to 300 notes in total) 2. Deleted the same notes in trash but left 1000 ++ notes undeleted in trash. Possible: YES, likely: NO. Question: Have anyone heard of of 100's of notes disappearing all of a sudden? If so, what happened, and where they able to restore the notes again? Note I am a power user, using Evernote on Mac, iPhone, iPad and an Android phone. I download all notes to my devices.
  8. So,I think I resolve the problem, this is what I did 1. I created one new folder called test 2. I moved all the notes from the folder I expect gave the problem 3. I then went on to delete the old folder 4. Finally i renamed test to the same name as the folder i suspected gave the problem. Now everything is in sync. I am of course happy that everything is in sync, but a bit shocked that something as simple as the name of a folder can "***** up" Evernote. Again thank you very much for your help and if ever something like this happens to you, try to create a new folder and move all your notes there and then delete the old one. This, you can of course only do if you have suspicion of which folder is giving the problem. So is not a complete solution.
  9. You say: I did see where Evernote is redesigninga new ver just for Win8/SP3.... What do you mean, you know they are doing it or you hope they will
  10. Hmm OK in my book they should then have been resolved by now, its not like Windows 8.1 just came out yesterday. This is not the first problem I have had with Windows, last time I had a problem where Evernote let me create more then 250 notebooks but it did not synchronize them, and this, without a warning (today I understand to use tags instead of notebooks)...but still What the heck does one do now? Drop Evernote? get a new computer or what?
  11. Dear all; Thank you very much for your help in resolving this problem. I have of course contacted Evernote, being a premium user, but they have not replied as of yet. Went ahead and did everything suggested, all to no avail, allow me to outline: 1. I backed up my Evernote database, locked out of Evernote and restart Windows. Up on logging in again I try to synchronize, but it did not solve the problem. 2. I checked the note count, on Evernote Web there are 3256 whereas in Evernote Windows there are 3365 notes. That is scary, because it basically means that whatever I at in Windows is not pushed to the Evernote cloud. 3. I checked the log file, if you look at the following screenshot upload to screencast you can see what it contains. It does not reveal anything suspicious to me, then again I'm not an expert, maybe it makes sense to some of you :-): http://screencast.com/t/93YejarYh4me Conclusion: when I add a note in my MacBook it get pushed to Evernote cloud and downloaded into my Windows computer. That works, so there is connection, when I add anything in Windows it does not get uploaded. I love Evernote but small errors like these makes me not want to implement it companywide. It scares me. Note: 1. I'm a premium member, and I have submitted a request to support but as of yet I've not heard anything. 2. I use Windows 8.1 on a Microsoft Surface Pro 3. With best regards Peter
  12. Today I moved about 300 - 500 notes out of 5 - 7 notebooks and into one notebook. I also did a lot of tagging and retagging by selecting 300 - 500 notes at a time and then do a batch tag. Now the changes I did on my Windows computer is not being pushed to Evernote. There are several inconsistencies, folders missing etc. When, however, I add a new note on another device (MacBook) then the note is correctly pushed to cloud and downloaded on my Windows computer indicating to me that there is connection. Its only the changes on my Windows computer that are not pushed up. If I add a new note in Windows with a bit of text, then that note is also not pushed to Evernote. 1. Does anyone know what the problem is, and how I can do a 'forced' synchronization ? 2. Is it possible to backup my existing notes, if I loos my notes then I do not dear thinking about the consequences. Any idea ? with best regards peter
  13. Thanks for the encouragement! For me Evernote is a business tool. I really don't care if I use Evernote, OneNote or something else note, but I care a great deal about not waisting my time. The hole exercise cost me 3 hours. I am pretty sure that I am not the first in the world to had this problem and I fail to understand that Evernote do not have a proper message in place. What a total waist of time....
  14. so problem solved, as it turned out there is a limited of 250 notebooks in Evernote and I had exceeded that. Fair enough but why the h..k did Evernote not display a message like: You have exceeded your quota of 250 notebooks. Please remove one or more notebooks to ensure you are not exceeding the limited then try to syncing again. I lost 3 hours of my valuable time contacting support and studying the Internet etc.
