DT Low - I like your idea of tags, but given that evernote already uses a lot of memory and I won't need to frequently access those old notes I'd rather just archive 99% of them. I suppose I coudl archive and delete but worried that may not be as "clean" as just starting fresh (EG will it still run slow or use excess memory due to fragmented storage, messy indexes or other residual data behind the scenes.
Do you know if there's any way to just create an entirely new "instance" of evernote and wipe the slate clean (after archive of course). I suppose I could just sign up for an entirely new account worst case.
Or am I being overly concerned about this?
I am using a Mac.. Scripting does sound ideal for at least the archiving part.
