  1. Not sure what you're asking here. Premium & beta are two entirely different things. The software (on all clients) is pretty much the same for free & premium accounts. The difference between free & premium is in the service, not the software. IE larger uploads per month, larger note size, offline notebooks for mobile devices, etc. https://evernote.com/premium/?heading1&no-tabs=true&hide-menu&utm_expid=6007595-112.54hSNfJYQ2adLiVASME-Pw.1&gclid=CjwKEAjwotmoBRCc6LWd2ZnkuBYSJACyt2quR5K5AV8uOQpJkiDZ9izhQVTDo9FTsv4NQwJ_qzRPiBoCRunw_wcB&utm_referrer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Faclk%3Fsa%3Dl%26ai%3DC1jzwaDgXVZC7F5HQsQeE8IHwBeHL68sFsav0-v4BttvcrWAIABABILZUYMm-yYbEo8gXoAHvirHVA8gBAaoEIk_QWElvTEgrULsOoL9V5CiJ3PYYCn7gbsr-FsYm78A1yZ2ABZBOgAf59M4qiAcBkAcCqAemvhvYBwE%26sig%3DAOD64_2DGx0wvFE_OeiNr9E8_oaFB-ioPg%26rct%3Dj%26q%3D%26ved%3D0CBwQ0Qw%26adurl%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fevernote.com%2Fpremium%2F%253Fno-tabs%253Dtrue%2526hide-menu The beta version is just that...but may include additional (not ready for prime time) features. Or...it may not be full featured yet, either. Depends on the status of the beta and what Evernote is rolling out. Free users and premium users can use the beta.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Since the web version deals directly with the Evernote servers, there is no syncing from the web client. You should sync the DESKTOP client in order for it to pull the correct/accurate amount from the EN servers. No mystery there. Since you synced the DESKTOP client, it pulled the correct amount from the servers.
  6. Restoring data is not a one size fits all. As mentioned in the thread csihilling linked to, it depends upon what you're restoring and what has transpired since the last backup. In the example you have, deleted notes go into the trash. If you accidentally delete half your notes, you can recover them from the trash, regardless if you have synced or not. I rarely empty the trash. But when I do, I make a backup first. If I later need these notes (after emptying the trash and syncing), I can recover them from the trash of my backup. Although charboyd has marked her answer as "best", I disagree b/c her post explains how Evernote syncs and how conflicting changes occurs. She does not address the issue of restore. Your OP was a bit vague, so her post MIGHT be the "best answer", depending upon what you intended (sync vs restoring data).
  7. Local notebooks are not synced to the EN cloud & so cannot be shared. In the Windows client, all notebooks (local and synced) are in the same SQL database.
  8. No one said it was. But in addition to the tick, of course the coding would need to be changed to search the trash. So it's simply not a matter of adding a tick to the UI. That's probably not all that hard to do, either. But regardless of how hard or easy something would be to add, it just may be that Evernote doesn't want to add that (or any other long sought after & requested feature). For whatever the reason. Their app & their choice as to what to add. Or not.

  10. I'm not sure what you're looking for. Everyone has their own 1 or 2 (or more) features they think will make Evernote the "best utility ever". None of yours are on my list. Evernote claims they read all posts on the board. I used to believe that, but am not sure at this point. However, they do not acknowledge every post or thread, do not normally publish ETAs and do not post their roadmap.
  11. I would suggest you regularly backup your local database. You say you didn't think "this sort of thing could happen". What if your computer's hard drive crashed & the data was unrecoverable? What if your computer were lost/stolen?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. I disagree about always importing local notebooks when restoring. See my post above yours wrt full restore of local notebooks from an exb file.
  15. Restores are not one size fits all. As Csihilling pointed out, it depends upon what has transpired since the last backup & what you are wanting to restore. I only backup the EXB file. I don't export to ENEX b/c if you have a good exb file, you can open it & then create the enex file, should you need/want to. JMO. And they are NOT required. To restore your local (non-sync'd) notebooks (in the event of a hard drive crash) or to move your database to a new computer (upgrading and/or computer loss/theft), the local notebooks would need to be in a recent backup of your exb file. Simply install Evernote & restore from the good exb file: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/22426-how-to-backup-your-windows-client-evernote-database/?p=158514 Then sync: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/21977-location-of-locally-stored-notebooks/?p=162582 This is similar to if you did not use the Windows client since your last backup, which was last week. Instead, you used the web client to add/modify/delete sync'd notes using the web client. Then today, you use the Windows client & sync. Same exact scenario, in essence. This does NOT break note links or go against your upload limit. Importing from ENEX files DOES break links & goes against your upload limit. Another reason I prefer to avoid enex files.
  16. I agree with Metrodon. Additionally, EN changes things on a whim, without prior notice. So something that is current today will most likely have outdated portions a few months from now. And anything that's older than a year or so may be outdated now.
  17. JMiU...AS IVE TOLD YOU AT LEAST TWICE IN THE PAST...ON THIS BOARD...(I would highlight that in blue like you like to do but I'm on my iPad) restore is not a one size fits all. (Feel free to search the board). Your above exchange is simply one example. I don't know why you fail to comprehend this. (Or why you are compelled to nitpick with so many people on this board - now, there's your nonsense!) There are instances where a restore absolutely does not break links and no, enex is not required. Again, I don't know why you fail to understand this. The very fact that after all the years you've been using Evernote and don't know how to restore notes is proof positive that you do not understand the process of restore & should not be advising other users about it. That. Is. All.
  18. Good grief JM...will you PLEASE STOP WITH THE NITPICKING???? It only adds UNWANTED NOISE. Get a hobby or something. You do a darned good job of making yourself look like the bad guy. Let's see...this week alone, you've nitpicked with csihilling:https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/80104-manual-sorting-and-the-design-objection/page-2#entry345419 Jefito & GM:https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/41178-evernote-annoyance-creating-sub-folders/page-3 And Gaz. (And I've not even linked to the various threads - this week alone). Maybe you should step away from the keyboard & take a lot of deep breaths, since you seem to be a huge contributor of (to use your term), noise. And the madness continues...JMiU please stop arguing about and nitpicking EVERY SINGLE THING THAT someone you don't like says. MOVE ON.https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/80104-manual-sorting-and-the-design-objection/?p=346772
  19. Absolutely not true, as you & I have discussed a few times before. There IS a way to do a restore via Mac and/or Windows clients that is a true restore & does not break links or go against your upload limit. Not going to go through this with you yet again. Please do not confuse the OP with your misinformation.OP, again, search on backup/restore. Or, if you have a premium account, you can submit a support ticket. BNF, I wish you were right, but you are not. If it can be done, then you can easily provide a link to the detailed steps to achieve a true restore. I won't believe it until you do. @daphoenix7207: Don't accept BNF's statement on blind faith. Do your own research and be convinced you know how to do a true restore before you select a backup strategy. JMiU, I have already provided info for you in the past. At least twice. Like I said, I'm not going around & around with you yet again. The fact that you don't understand how to do it doesn't mean it doesn't work or is confusing to others.

  22. Backup has been discussed on the board at great length. It's also helpful to mention what client you are using. In a nutshell, for the Windows desktop client, you backup the your-user-name.exb file. Please search the board for Mac and/or for more info on backup & restore.
