  1. My current major concern as a relatively recent adopter of EN (in addition to the above re backup security) is reliability of local storage of mission-critical notes. This is based on a recent experience of having lost 2 hours' worth of key data in a meeting when my Android smartphone crashed & rebooted. On re-opening the note it only had the stuff I had saved before the meeting, not the 2 hours' worth I had taken during it! Don't worry, I did a within-file search of all the files from that day in the EN folder, just to be sure it wasn't there somewhere. It wasn't. Why is there not the option to autosave a user-definable number of local backup copy versions every so often as you go along? Without this facility, I cannot commit to Evernote, which seems really great in other respects. I need my note-managing software to be bomb-proof for my mission-critical notes; as it stands, I'm afraid EN isn't. Unless I'm missing something somewhere...
  2. This happened to me a few days ago - 2 hours' worth of notes went west after a spontaneous reboot of my HTC Desire z occurred before I had saved the note. When I restarted Evernote, it showed an earlier version of the note. Was I frustrated! Having checked the support site, I managed to find the sub-folder on my SD card where Evernote notes are kept, and by trial and error looking through the various notes I had made on that date, I found the relevant file (Phew!) [*NB SEE AMENDMENT BELOW*]. Presumably the reset had reverted the database's index to the earlier setting, so the later data were there, but the database couldn't see them. I've reported this to Evernote support to see if there's a 'proper' recovery tool or system, but at least using a file explorer app enabled me to find the data & I can copy & paste them in if all else fails. Hope this might be encouraging and possibly helpful to others who seem to have lost data - there might be something still there!. CORRECTION The file I found was NOT the lost version, but the earlier one - I, too seem to have lost my data irrevocably. I have of course submitted a support ticket, and asked why multiple autosaves of critical files cannot be offered, but I'm not holding my breath...! I'll post again if I hear anything.
