    does evernote back up old data, so it can be retrived or does it just store what is on your computer for that day? So if you delete from your computer a note, then in a month you would like to retrieve that note, this is not possible? I understand deleted notes are in trash file, however if the note is gone from trash, is there no way to retrive?

    For desktop devices (Win, Mac), Evernote keeps a full copy of your data on your local machine, unless you you have "on demand sync" enabled, which is a Windows feature (don't know about Mac).

    Aside from that, Evernote stores all of your Evernote data except for local notebooks on its servers, so long as you are online, which is required for syncing.

    Evernote also keeps note histories, generated every so often, also stored in the Evernote servers; paying customers can access these.

     Is there some Secret War going on by Google against Evernote?  I pose this question with utmost seriousness, because Web Clipper's failure seems to be a longstanding problem that could have been fixed by now.

    BTW, since Evernote is a customer of Google's (https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/226885427-Google-Cloud-Platform-FAQ.,) I'd say that this is pretty unlikely.

    Beyond that, I can't comment. LVL 5 Deep State stuff, you know...

    Also, I intend on keeping my Old Laptop as a spare, so I imagine I must also add my New Laptop/device to my one-of-5 (i think it is) allowed devices...right?

    Presumably then you'd be able to run them at the same time -- side-by-each as the Francophones in my state say -- and just go through the options dialog in parallel on each device.

    Why muck around with the registry is you don't need to? Are you really so finely tuned to an exact set of options that it matters all that much (and if you missed one, but didn't notice, how bad would that be?).  Aside from that, I'm not so sure that all settings are kept in the registry anyhow; some of them may be maintained in the database. Your call, of course, but I wouldn't do it, and I'm pretty friendly with the registry.

    Hi. I have the same problem and I opened purgatory to find the note. there's a content-pre-sync.enml file which i think will work for me but how can open the enml extension ? tried with text editor and it opens a lot of code making the note unreadable... 

    ENML is an XHTML variant, so text yes, but not necessarily very human-readable.

    It is possible to sign up for a premium account temporarily for the purpose of accessing your Note History (https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313858-How-to-use-note-history-to-view-older-versions-of-a-note), though I've never done it. 

  5. For literal searches, punctuation is explicitly excluded. See https://dev.evernote.com/doc/articles/search_grammar.php. See the section on "Matching Literal Terms"


    If no advanced search modifier is found in a search term, it will be matched against the note as a text content search. Words or quoted phrases must exactly match a word or phrase in the note contents, note title, tag name, or recognition index. Words in the content of the note are split by whitespace or punctuation. Words may end in a wildcard to match the start of a word. Searches are not case sensitive. (A wildcard is only permitted at the end of the term, not at the beginning or middle for scalability reasons on the service.) Multiple whitespace and/or punctuation characters in the quoted phrase or the note will be compared as if they were a single space. The backslash escape character ('\') may be used to escape a quotation mark within a quoted phrase. E.g.:

    Don't really know of any way around this. Definitely would be nice to have the ability to match arbitrary text including punctuation. I'm sure that this has been requested before.

  6. I see this working in the latest beta (308300) Prerelease (CE Build ce-62.1.7539).

    I specifically tested saved searches using the any: term. For example: any: resource:application/pdf tag:admin worked fine. Also: stack:@Work any: created:week-1 updated:week-1.

    I'll leave aside any metaphysical speculation as to why bugs occur....

    Do you have a suggested method of encrypting scans/pictures of documents.   I considered using a database program like microsoft ACCESS as well, but I think Evernote has a better , simpler layout.

    If I was really worried about such things, I'd probably use encrypted documents as attachments.

    Is there any way to create notebooks that are not shared but stored only locally and remain encrypted?

    To unpack this a bit:

    • There is no way in Evernote to create encrypted notebooks at this time.
    • You can, however, create encrypted sections of notes, but that doesn't apply to attachments like documents.
    • As @DTLownotes, the desktop applications allow you to create local notebooks that contain notes that only ever reside on one machine (since they are never synced to the Evernote servers). So you cannot view these documents on any other device, and you are responsible for backing up notes in local backups, because they won't be on the Evernote serves.
    • You can certainly store encrypted notes in an Evernote note as attachments. You'll need to decrypt them yourself on whatever device you are using that the time.
  • Create New...
