I opened Evernote after it updated, and I tried to find a note that is stored in a local notebook. It was not in Evernote. I searched, and nothing came up, then I noticed that all of my local notebooks were missing.
I used the command+ space search feature on mac to search for the notes, and I found a folder that's com.evernote.Evernote, and opened it, and there was another folder in there, and the notes were in that folder. So I tried opening one of them
What happens when I do that is that Evernote gives me a pop up that says, "This note belongs to (my email). Log in to that account
