  1. Whoa, take a deep breath. I wasn't trolling nor was I attacking you. I was trying to point out a flaw in the OP's logic (if his intent was to shield his personal or private information). I am an avid EN user, and I love the product. But I think people these days are generally quite uninformed about privacy & security, especially with regard to web services such as EN and how their data might be used or shared. Facebook is of course the textbook example, but it applies to EN as well. Some people are undoubtedly putting sensitive information in their notebooks, and they might not be aware that this is being stored in unencrypted form.

  2. Sorry I don't have an answer to your question. But this question has prompted a question of my own: Why the desire to store your entire EN database on an encrypted TrueCrypt container? If there is sensitive information in there, you do realize that the EN staff have access to it right? Things you put in EN are not "private".

    Here's an important excerpt taken directly from the company's privacy policy:

    As a rule, Evernote employees do not monitor or view your personal information or content stored in the Evernote service, but it may be viewed if we learn that our Terms of Service may have been violated and confirmation is required, or we otherwise determine that we have an obligation to review it...

    This is a (nice?) way of saying that EN basically has complete, unfettered access to your data. Exactly how and who determines when EN "has an obligation" to review your personal data? I would assume that any reasonably high-level employee can simply log on to their servers and start banging away at it, without requiring any sort of court intervention, subpoena or even notifying the user. If I am wrong about any of this please do correct me.

  3. there seems to be an issue when clicking links to local files/folders on XP. I've reproduced the problem now; we'll look into it.

    Emerick, I'd like to point out that this issue is NOT specific to XP. I am running Win7 x64 and also suffer from this issue.

    I'm currently running (128396).

    e.g. I have manually added the following link to an EN note (this is a link to a folder btw):


    When clicked from EN, nothing happens. Zilch. Nada.

    If I paste this link into the "Start => Run" box, the folder opens correctly. Also works fine from Firefox, Chrome, or IE (both 32- and 64-bit flavors). So this issue is only affecting Evernote.

  4. helix-

    If I follow word-for-word your updated instructions in the first post, it does not work for me.

    the path I am trying to link to is:

    C:\Users\John Smith\Documents\Virtual Machines\Ubuntu

    clicking on this link from within EN does absolutely nothing on my system.

    as I mentioned before, shortening the URL to just

    C:\Users\John Smith\

    does work, but it's as if EN can "go no further" down the path-- anything extra beyond the user folder (e.g. Favorites, Documents, Desktop etc) results in a dead link.

  5. I solved these kinds of problems by just brute-force deleting the registry keys that enable the Outlook add-ins.

    There are 4 keys (that I am aware of) on 64-bit systems where Outlook add-ins can be loaded. Just monitor these and remove what you want and you can say goodbye to bloat & crash-prone addins. 32-bit systems will not have the Wow6432Node key. Also, 14.0 is for Outlook 2010. If you're using 2007, I think the key is 12.0. YMMV.
