  1. I was fortunate since I was only working with a couple notes when the issue started... If you go to All Notes in the desktop app, one of the sort columns is "Updated" where you can sort all of your notes by last update. If it were me, I would first make a backup of the AppData folder that includes the Evernote database, and then I would start deleting notes that you suspect may be corrupt, using the Updated sort as a starting place for the time it may have happened. Once you identify the problem note, you can restore the backed-up database and delete just the corrupted note. This assumes that the app isn't hanging indefinitely. Mine would hang for 1-2 minutes and then would cooperate long enough for me to highlight and delete the problem note... I would check too if you have any notes in the Conflicting Changes folder. I had a sync conflict with the note that was giving me problems just before the hanging issue started. It's a possibility that the corruption was the result of a sync conflict. Good luck. Mine hangs indefinitely. I have to force close and it start it up fresh every time. Still, I'm going to prowl through my notes list in case there are obvious signs of a bad file. Thanks for the advice. Have you tried accessing your local database while offline? And if that doesn't work have you tried after booting in Windows safe mode? Accessing the local database would be the easiest way to hone in on the corrupted note (assuming that you're having the same problem I had). Alternatively, you could access your notes on the web; email yourself the suspicious note(s) as a backup (you can select multiple using the Control key); delete the suspicious notes using the web interface; then sync this to a new install of Evernote on your computer.
  2. It is possible to re-download the .exb database but beware that if you have any local or unsynced notes they would be lost. Export any such notes to .enex files (one per notebook) before you go ahead. If you have a lot of notes the re-download/ refresh of your database can take a little while. Wouldn't this be the same as using REVO to uninstall, and then resyncing from the server with a fresh install? In my case, I tried this, but the corrupted note had already been sync'd up to the server, so it just resync'd the problematic note and the issue remained until I physically deleted the note.

  4. I was having the same issues with the "not responding" hangs and it turned out that the formatting for one specific note in my Evernote database somehow got corrupted and was causing the app to hang globally. Ultimately, the fix was to cut and paste the corrupted note into a Word document and remove all formatting. I then deleted the original note in Evernote, reformatted the note in Word as I wanted it, and pasted it back into Evernote (creating a new note). It hasn't hanged since. (I have no idea what part of the formatting became corrupt, but the hangs started shortly after I attached a JPEG to the note.)
