  1. Pretty ridiculous if you ask me. Are we children!? Today the F word is so common it has become useless as a swear word; few people give it a second thought when it is used. PC has gotten out of control!Are we children? This is the internet where anyone can be here and anyone can pose as someone they are not. I have seen some pretty nasty posts by supposed adults. I agree that PC has gotten out of control and yes, the F word is very common. That doesn't mean a board owner must allow it or allow potentially offensive words. As users of this board, we should respect that.
  2. Well, as you can see, my use of the word g-a-y got bleeped out...
  3. That word is often considered a slur against the ***** community. There are other acceptable words that get "bleeped" out since the filter can't determine the context used. IE. I think these words get bleeped: c-r-a-p, s-c-r-e-w. It's certainly easy enough to edit your post to use a different word.
  4. Poser. Agreed. The user's profile does not indicate he/she is an Evernote employee. Plus, to date, Evernote has never offered phone support except I think Evernote Business did...but am not sure.
  5. Version 2 files are definitely NOT compatible with later versions of Evernote. If you cannot find a copy of V2 through something like Filehippo, then it would seem your only option is to upgrade from a free Evernote account, if you haven't already, and submit a support ticket. I'm not 100% sure they would be able to get you a copy, since that version has not been supported for over six years. But if you do get a copy, then you would need to also get a copy of 3.x in order to migrate from the 2.x database. And there may even be another update you'd need to do, since I think the 3.x database is not compatible with the latest versions, either.
  6. I have been using Amazon S3 servers via Jungledisk UI for many years now (at least 7). IDK offhand how much space I use, but I think it's safe to say I use more than most of the average Joes b/c I tend to be a "virtual hoarder" and have documents, files, photos and even home movies I've been collecting for about 25 years now. What used to cost me ~$90/month is now down to $40.
  7. FWIW, you *can* put an encrypted container in Dropbox & open it as a virtual drive. I've done this in the past with a Truecrypted container.
  8. Evernote is free for everyone. OTOH, Evernote premium is not free for anyone, AFAIK. The exception of course, is if you get a voucher when you've purchased another product or something like that. You can still access your account & notes, but it would have reverted to a free account.
  9. I switched from Evernote to Onenote last year. I got Office 365 (annual subscription) which includes free updates of the Office suite software and one terabyte of cloud storage. Onenote doesn't work as well for me as Evernote USED to. But Evernote does not scale well. They are aware of this and have continued to not address the problem. It got to the point where EN simply would not work on my PC, iPhone or iPad due to the large number of notes I had (66,000+) I had. So for me, the $100/year for the version of Office 365 I signed up for was worth it, since I had two EN premium accounts. But as you say, that's a different discussion.
  10. Sorry, but if the data being sent to Evernote is not in a viable format (for whatever reason), it's still the third party developer's responsibility, not Evernote's. The third party dev needs to make sure the data they are sending to Evernote is in a viable format. IE, if the third party app is sending the date in an invalid format, Evernote may be using a default value of 1/1/70, when writing the record to the database. So the third party developer needs to correct the date they are sending. Also, Evernote does not provide support to free users either. This board is strictly a users board that EN employees only occasionally post on. So the chance of anyone here knowing how to fix the issue is possible, but slim.
  11. Possibly because those "new weird" features may be attracting new users b/c of the novelty. IMO, in recent years, Evernote (the company) seems to have focused more on attracting new users rather than keeping existing ones. Gone are the days of EN wanting to be a 100 year company that strove to be the repository of many years worth of our memories and notes. IDK if it's due to financial constraints or just because someone at the top got a burr up their a$$.
  12. Eventnoted appears to be a third party app. You should contact the developer through the contact link on their webpage.
  13. Honey, you always are reinventing the wheel. Evernote does not need to get your permission to delete your posts. Nor are they required to inform you if they do. Having said that, this has been discussed with you here... https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/83222-where-are-my-old-topics/
  14. What client? Mac desktop or web client? If you're using the Mac desktop client, you should be able to drag n drop the file from your hard drive to a note (IE, adding the file to an existing note) or a notebook (to create a new note). At least that's how it works on the Windows desktop client. I don't remember if DnD works with the web client, but I think it does.
  15. Given that this version was a beta release nearly four years ago, you will probably need to get this (now) very old version someplace like FileHippo.
  16. Oh good grief. Whatever happened to personal responsibility? Why does something always have to be someone else's fault? Please note I said: But yes...if you haven't needed information for a year, there's a good chance you won't need it. OTOH, as I also said: Any data that is very important should not be stored in only one app. Backups of (very) important data should be kept for longer than a year, if it contains data you think you may not need two years from now. IE, medical information from 10 years ago, insurance policies, etc. There are documents that will probably never be deleted from my computer because I do want to retain them for a long time. I sure as heck don't put the only copies into a software app. JMO & YMMV. But as I also said... And finally... Then you should be able to recover your local notebooks from your backups. Good luck.
  17. Every Evernote account has a default notebook, which is where notes that do not have a designated notebook go (IE if you email something into your EN account). When you are using an EN client, you can select a notebook to work in. IE, if you're clipping a lot of notes about a particular topic, this way you don't have to specify a notebook each time. Just go to that notebook in the client & clip away. Most users (including me) would hate to have to specify a notebook for each clipping, which is why there are these options. Hardly absurd. Many people use their default notebook as an inbox & then clear their inbox at a later date.
  18. Evernote has publicly stated they do not support networked drives. Some people have reported success while others have claimed problems. Additionally, Evernote's CTO has publicly stated that attempting to put the live Evernote database in Dropbox has a high risk of data corruption. I'm not familiar with Netdrive, but if it's similar to Dropbox, I would think the same warning would apply. And like Gaz, I would suggest against it. Please note that this differs from putting a BACKUP of your live database into a cloud such as Dropbox.
  19. It's what I tell anyone who has important data on their computer, regardless what apps they use. And if they are having "this problem repeatedly", they need to ramp up their backups b/c they must not be backing up the correct stuff or often enough. Then you should be able to recover your local notebooks from your backups. I try to keep backups for at least a year. If it's been so long that you no longer have that backup then I would suggest one of two things. Either it really wasn't that important (b/c you didn't notice it missing for so long) or else follow the not having all your eggs in one basket theory, which is another thing I do. Anything that's really important for me to remember is stored in at least two places. Stuff happens & software & hardware fail each & every day. In today's digital age, it's easy to make digital copies or have things stored in multiple apps as a CYA approach. I have lost much data over the decades. But I've often said each time I've lost data, my backup routine gets better. The instances I cited are not the only reasons for needing a backup. Yes, it's bad if a software upgrade destroys data. But...that's why one makes backups.
  20. In today's day & age, it doesn't require being a rocket scientist (NPI) to figure out that one should backup anything important that's on ones computer. Consider if your computer were lost or stolen? Or the hard drive crashed? Sorry you lost your data. But computers are such an integral part of most peoples' lives today that not doing regular backups is akin to ignoring auto, health or home maintenance & then having something go terribly wrong that could have been prevented with proper maintenance.
  21. Evernote has taken the stance to not make any modifications to the user's notes. If this is a necessity for you, then there are true list/task managers that will do the job for you. The right tool for the job & all that jazz.
  22. Yup. Or certain cases where there were very few changes to local notes & the user has a lot of links in local notebooks that they don't want to break. That whole pesky "not one size fits all" thing again.
  23. I disagree about always importing local notebooks when restoring. See my post above yours wrt full restore of local notebooks from an exb file.
