  1. Just an update on the issue that may prevent a large notebook from backing up. (As you probably remember, some large notebooks can't be exported successfully with no apparent reason) I've got the reply from Evernote Team - they're aware of this issue and working on a fix to be scheduled in a future release, but they don't currently have an ETA for when it will be resolved. So, hope it will be fixed in the next release of Evernote client. Meanwhile, I'll try to create some kind of workaround for the issue.
  2. Hi gazumped! Thanks so much for checking out the tool and for your feedback. It works the following way for the incremental backup: if the app sees there is no previous notebook backup at all, then it makes full notebook backup, i.e. exports all the notes from the notebook. That is why the first incremental backup is actually the full one. If some previous notebook backup exists, then the app exports notes that were added or updated after the latest backup. Here is a quick example: Say I have a notebook called Notebook1 and run the app for the first time at the 1st of July 4.30 A.M. Since there is no previous backup, then the app makes full backup of the notebook and creates the single enex file in Notebook1 directory: <StoragePath>\Notebook1\2017_July_01_04_30_00.enex Let's say the next run is at the 3rd of July 10.30 A.M. Since the previous backup already exists the app exports all the added/updated notes that were introduced between the 1st of July 4.30 A.M. and the 3rd of July 10.30 A.M., so the backup directory contains: <StoragePath>\Notebook1\2017_July_01_04_30_00.enex <-- the first backup (full backup) <StoragePath>\Notebook1\2017_July_03_10_30_00.enex <-- added/updated notes after the 1st of July 4.30 A.M. till now (i.e. till the 3rd of July 10.30 A.M.) On the next run (say at the 5th of July 11.00 A.M.) it exports added/updated notes between the the 3rd of July 10.30 A.M. and the 5th of July 11.00 A.M. In fact, I'm began working on it a short time ago. I can't provide ETA for now, but I think it will be ready for the following couple of releases. Actually it is a frequently requested feature, so it's already on our roadmap. I think I got your idea, but just to double-check: you wish to have the ability to remove backup files over x days old without entering each of 100 directories and manually delete each file, right?
  3. I'll keep you updated on the progress!
  4. ENScript export issue

    Hi there! Hope someone from Evernote can help. We've discovered strange behavior of ENScript.exe tool. Sometimes during the export of notebooks ENScript.exe hangs with no apparent reason. The problem arises sporadically, so we still haven't found clear steps to reproduce the issue. Trying to run the same export after some time may or may not help. The problem arises on different machines and different Evernote clients. Command line is: ENScript.exe exportNotes /q "notebook:\"MyNotebook1\"" /f "C:\test1.enex" names of the notebook and enex file may differ, I've just simplified them. Here are the examples: ======================= PC1/Evernote account1 ===================== Windows version: Microsoft Windows NT 6.2.9200.0 x64 (Windows 8) Evernote Client version: 6.6.2.5173 Tried to export all notebooks from the account one by one several times, the first 2 times all notebooks were exported without any problems except the single notebook for which the export never ends (have been waiting for more than 5 hours) and the generated ENEX file is always 1.8 GB. On the third run (after a couple of days) the export for this notebook completed successfully (it took about 1.5 hours) and generated ENEX file is 19 GB. All other notebooks are exported all the times without any problems. ======================= PC2/Evernote account2 ===================== Windows version: Microsoft Windows NT 6.1.7601 (Windows 7) Service Pack 1 x64 Evernote Client version: 6.5.4.4720 Tried to export all notebooks from the account one by one several times, the problem occurs for a single notebook only, each time export never ends (have been waiting for more than 5 hours) and the generated ENEX file is always 5,9 GB. All other notebooks are exported without any problems. ======================= PC3/Evernote account3 ===================== Windows version: Microsoft Windows NT 6.1.7601 (Windows 7) Service Pack 1 Evernote Client version: 6.4.2.3788 Tried to export all notebooks from the account one by one several times, the problem occurs for a single notebook only, each time export never ends (have been waiting for more than 5 hours) and the generated ENEX file is always 104.6 MB. ================================================================ Please advice, Thanks!
  5. Hi there! Here is a quick update on the problem that leads some notebooks are skipped from the backup. As you probably know, at some step of backup process the app uses ENScript.exe (https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/enscript.php#enscript) tool to perform export of notebooks. We've discovered that the tool hangs sometimes exporting large notebooks (> 2GB) with no apparent reason. The problem arises sporadically, so we still haven't found clear steps to reproduce the issue, but I suppose this is because of some kind of notebook "locking" since trying to run the same export after a few hours often helps so the backup completes successfully. I'll report the issue to Evernote, hope they shed some light on the issue.
  6. Hi Gazumped! Thanks so much for trying the tool, I really appreciate it. The feedback is very important for us, since it gives us fresh look on what confuses users and what should be improved. I've reproduced this problem in my lab and I'm currently working on it. For now I could say the app mistakenly skips some notebooks during the backup for some reason. I'll post here about the results. Thanks again for trying and providing such actionable feedback!
  7. Hi there! We've released a new version of Backupery for Evernote for Windows You may download it here: https://www.backupery.com/products/backupery-for-evernote/ Here are some updates: The ability to backup directly to Dropbox (without the need of an intermediate local directory): The ability to backup data in HTML format so you can easy to view your exported notes. You may setup multiple backup destinations now, so you can duplicate you backup data to your local drive and USB drive at once, for example. It’s much more easier to select notebooks to backup now: Download page: https://www.backupery.com/products/backupery-for-evernote/ Please let me know what you think. Any ideas, suggestions, and questions are highly appreciated!
  8. This is interesting. Thanks for the hint, will definitely look into it.
  9. I think yes, generally it is feasible since Evernote Client stores its data inside Sqlite database and the format of the database is well documented. However, problably the workflow will differ from those you have suggested, since as far as I know Evernote doesn't allow to modify the behavior of their official clients via third-party apps, so the steps 1 and 2 (User selects a Note in Evernote, User then asks for a Backupery restore) have to be accomplished in some other way. Probably it would be some third-party note browser just for purpose of restoring the note or notebook.
  10. Hi JMichaelTX, The restoration feature is on our roadmap, but for now I am not sure it doesn't clash with Evernote Premium note history feature so it will make our app violate Evernote third-party apps policy. I will research this and if we are allowed to add the feature, we should create this, I think it will make the app much more easy to use.
  11. Hi Tailspin, Sorry for the late reply and thanks for giving the app a try! Actually yes, the Windows version provides more capabilities than the Mac one. However, we are going to add more features to the Mac version to make it more flexible. Hmm, thanks for the note! We should definitely consider adding it. May I ask do you have any other issues besides you have already noted? Does everything work as expected?

  14. No problem. Please write back with any future questions or concerns you might have.
  15. Hi EverDanielW, Yep, it does include tag data in the backups. So if you import your notes back, they will contain tag data. Thanks, John
