  1. Having the ability of a service that allows users to have all of their notes physically in a spiral notebook after typing them. There could be organizing options for tabs/sectioning, and blank page options too for addition.
  2. I would be grateful for any help in understanding the following backup/restore scenario. The backup is a simple "folder" backup containing all the files in the "Databases" folder. Assume that my backup contains 3 notes: one note which is identical to a note in the current database (AKA the "common" note). One note which does not exist in the current database (the "old" note). One note which exists in both databases, but has been changed (the "changed" note) My current database contains 3 notes: The common note, the new note, and the changed note. Procedure: - Disconnect from internet. - Copy all the backup files to the "Databases" folder, thus overwriting all current files. - Restore internet connection. - Synch. Question: After the synch, what notes are now in the current Evernote? Thanks.
  3. Evernote for iOS is losing data. I have lost content within notes. It's happening with alarming frequency. (At least six times in the past 2 months). I keep a regular log of medications I take and it's rather important to me. I lost a full day of the log's data when I looked this morning -- everything I had entered for yesterday and the evening prior was gone -- I lost 36 hours worth of data for no justifiable reason. There certainly has no user error here. It was just gone. I didn't delete it by accident. We need to have Note History available to us at all times. I know the data is backed up somewhere. I shouldn't have to pay for Evernote Premium to have a sense of security over my information (Note -- I do pay for the Plus tier -- and I thought I had Note History available but it seems like that feature was stripped away at some point). However now considering that data is being deleted by Evernote on a regular basis -- this history feature should just be FREE to all because otherwise, we have no way of retrieving data that was lost THROUGH NO FAULT OF OUR OWN. I am getting so frustrated with the lack of reliability in Evernote -- and this bug needs to be fixed IMMEDIATELY. Until it is fixed, the Note History features should be readily/freely available to all. The current state of affairs in INEXCUSABLE.
  4. Hello I mostly use Evernote through the web clipper as a bookmark gatherer (I only record links). I would like to save my bookmark data offline for backup/recording purposes in whatever format (csv, html, json ...). Just like google chrome bookmarks html export. I don't use google chrome bookmarks because it doesn't manage multi chrome accounts (plus bookmarks metadata is very poor). Is there such a feature ? Or if you know better tools/features for my querry ... Many thanks, Raphaël
  5. Hi , I would like if Evernote have feature to back up or export notes to word or .doc extenstion in computer . For I know it is still not possible to do it in evernote now , isn't it ? Thank you for your consideration .
  6. Hello! I use Evernote exclusively on my Chromebook. How can I export data? It seems that the export options that Mac and Windows users are not available? I'd simply like to make occasional backups of all data that I could upload to google drive or dropbox, for a little extra redundancy and piece of mind. (PS. I tried using IFTTT, but it only works with new notes, and creates files for each note. I'd like to simply backup all data periodically to have on hand for an emergency). Would be grateful for a painless easy solution. Thank you!
  7. Is there a way to run backups with Evernote? I get that everything is synced/stored in the cloud, but redundancy is important! I've read that I can export each Notebook manually, but I have several notebooks, so that would take a long time. Any other options? Does Time Machine back it up? Thanks!
  8. Why not to accept EPUB as a exchange format? Even more, why not use EPUB as the real format for all system? It is time to assume that Evernote is not an notetaking-App, is a online-white-paper-App. We are who decide if we are writing a short or long text, temporal or permanent, personal or public and son on. In both cases, we will need formatting tools to create this text, this writing. For many, Evernote is the updated version of windows notepad-app for this 21st century, but we need more than that app. Doing this you will have the solution for many questions: - Title, headings, subheadings: great to write more than two lines of text! - Style format (colours, fonts): avoiding untidy notes - Tablet of content/index: navigability trough large and dense notes - Export/import option as EPUB: rather than ENEX format or HTML files - Storage option: any place as one file, that is EPUB - Online minimalist EPUB editor: simply text without see any html code - No printers, no paper: users just need and want digital content So finally, Evernote will be a huge online place where you can start with a minimum note of one line. Then, you can go far adding more text and contents, creating a report, a diary. Even, completing a novel or a thesis by parts or doing all in one place. Then, if someone need further publishing software, there are many applications (Indesing, QuarkPress, etc). All of them ready to create printings and more developed solutions for experts. Nowadays, for real digital life, nobody needs a old fashion formats like DOC or PDF, which are prepared to be "printed" in a paper or in a screen. For many of us, with a Evernote is more than enough. Google knows it. They have GoogleDocs that in fact is an editor of super-html, that is, EPUB. There you can download it in EPUB format (however you cannot upload EPUB to there...). Even Evernote already knows this, because in fact, ENEX format is a kind of compressed html, that is again, a kind of EPUB format.
  9. Hi, Google just launched a new app that replaces Google Drive called 'Backup and Sync'. I just wondered if it is at all useful if you for whatever reason wants a "third" place to keep a copy of the database. I'm not really willing to pay for time machine or an external drive during this time. I just pointed the app toward the Evernote database in the Application Support finder folder. Might this disrupt something or is it a safe way to backup a database?
  10. Evernote desktop takes a copy of a note "several times a day". When this occurs is unclear. This is Note History My need is to take a copy of a note at important times. Like I'm going to lunch. Or I'm about to make some major changes to this recently created note and so I'd like to ensure that I have the before and after version. So the request is to add a manual history shortcut key. When pressed, another copy of the current note only is added to the history, if its changed, just like the automatic history. It uses the same mechanism as the current Note History. This runs on the server. So the short cut needs to sync the current note, instigate a history copy on the server and update the local note with the new history copy. You could also help to mitigate sync failures by allowing a user to choose to have every note that is synced copied to history too. Maybe per Notebook. A user might then be able to check the history to see that at least a copy has been held locally. Given that sync may fail quietly, its good to be able to eyeball the saved history. I note that history is kept for deleted items too. Thats cool. I didn't expect it.
  11. Hi all !! I'd like to completely backup my Evernote installation (notes and settings) in order to restore them on another computer. Is there a way to do it? Have a nice evening
  12. Issues with Restore of Evernote HTML Backup (Export) Some users are exporting their notes as HTML as their primary Evernote backup. I have found the EN HTML export has severe limitations and is NOT well suited for restoring your Note(s). Evernote offers two formats for export: ENEX -- ✅ recommended for backup and restore HTML -- ⚠️ not suitable for restore The ENEX format works very well, and stores/retains most of your Note metadata (see below for details), EXCEPT for Notebook. For that reason, many, including me, recommend exporting Notes for each Notebook to a separate ENEX file, with a file name the same or similar to the Notebook name. Restoring a Note from a EN HTML Export (based on EN Mac 6.9.2) (this is for Evernote 6.9.2 (454158) on macOS 10.11.4) There is NOT an import option to import HTML files So you have to drag/drop each HTML file to the Evernote icon in your dock The new Note created from this drag/drop, has these issues/problems/missing data: ⚠️ NO metadata is imported. This is a huge loss. ⚠️ NO attachments are imported. This is a huge loss. NO EN checkboxes are imported. The original Note formatting is NOT restored. At a minimum, extra blank lines are inserted ⚠️ Evernote Note Metadata NOT Imported from HTML Export[1] Tag(s) Created Date Updated Date Source URL Location Reminder Author Evernote Note Metadata NOT Stored in neither HTML nor ENEX Export Notebook GUID (used to identify, and link to the Note) Sharing data (NOTE: Prior versions of EN Mac did NOT retain the other metadata. But with Ver 6.9.2, all is retained and imported, except for the 3 items above) Footnotes: Curiously enough, most of the Note Metadata listed is stored in the HTML Export. It is just not used by the drag/drop import process. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ References: Backing up and restoring Evernote data (Reference article) How to back up (export) and restore (import) notes -- Evernote Knowledge Base How to back up and restore your data in Evernote for Windows EN Mac ENEX Export/Import Test Two major backup strategies that can be used with Evernote
  13. If I want to backup Evernote from the directory location, as opposed to exporting an ENEX, which files do I select?
  14. Hi folks - just scared myself to death and am wondering whether this was just a Senior moment or was really a serious mess-up on my part.. Any views or experience on what would happen if you click a large backup ENEX file while Evernote is running? For reasons to do with previous tests and fixes I have an old ENEX file on my desktop. It's a backup of my default notebook from weeks ago. I also have a couple of 'template' ENEXes (as discussed in other threads) for a diary note and other things. They all have the standard green/ elephant icon. In total I have about 30 icons showing for various documents and folders - I'm not a tidy worker. This morning I wanted a new diary note and absent-mindedly clicked the icon, and waited... and waited... and then realised I clicked the wrong icon: I'd hit the default notebook ENEX, not the diary note. Evernote had locked up, and I had a horrible feeling that it might be about to replace my current Default notebook (22,060 notes) with a version from a few weeks ago with a few hundred fewer notes and lots fewer edits. So I killed my wifi connection and tried to close the Evernote window. Windows 10 told me Evernote wasn't responding, and I took the option to close it anyway. Restarted the app (and the wifi) and everything seems to be OK - but did I come close to disaster, or was I just overreacting? Evernote may have been about to come up with the usual 'where do you want to restore these items to?' dialogue and -apart from tying up system resources- I would have done nothing worse than sidetrack myself for a while. On the other hand... I'll test it out on another account when I have time, but until then any ENEX files I'm not actively using are in a folder where I can't accidentally click them! Moral: Don't keep backup ENEX files anywhere they might get clicked accidentally. And drink more coffee in a morning...
  15. I recently found an old harddrive with an Evernote database and backup files circa September 2006. The Database folder has these 4 files in it: Evernote.enb / Evernote.eni / Evernote.enl / Evernote.enr The Backups folder has 6 backups each with different dates. The backups have an .enex and .xml extension. When I attempt to import any of these backups I get the following error: Could not import notes, error: INVALID_ROOT (Error in line 2, token "EVERNOTE") Please report this problem to Evernote support. I don't have the version that was used to create these notebooks, and I can read the XML files but the code makes the notebooks nearly impossible to read, or extract in that fashion. Lastly, I did find the EN2Export.zip file in another post. In attempting to convert the database, given the time period it's reasonable to assume that the database is from Version 2.x. That didn't work. I can re-run the program to recreate the error as I don't have it handy right now. If it's pertinent my system specs: Windows 10 Pro 64bit / 32GB RAM / Intel Core i7 3.4GHz.
  16. Hello, this is a feature i'd really like implemented Is there anyway to backup all my notes in my device (in text format, readable with other programs/apps on mobile) without copying them all one by one? That would be very time consuming I'm thinking maybe a feature that lets you backup everything to a file in the most standard format possible just for safe keeping in case of something happening to your account or simply losing all of them. I keep so much in my evernote that i am concerned about this, i will probably do this manually soon, but a feature would be much appreciated. I'm sure some people would appreciate it as well.
  17. to solve the problem of the archiving and show up the result as well the tags.and still have to see the old article in the web clipper or sear results. what I want like to put all note now into an archive and the start over all again. the but is, that I still need to have access to the notes in the archive. and if possible also have all tag move the the archive . the suggested way to do Thank you for contacting Evernote Customer Support. My name is Olegs and I will be happy to assist you today. I understand you would like to archive all of your current notes but still have access to them when you need to. 1.) At the moment the only way to archive/back up your notes/notebooks would be to export them out of Evernote as an Evernote XML (.enex) and then to import your ENEX (.enex) backup files to restore your notes and tags back into your Evernote account when you need to. For more information on how to back up (export) and restore (import) notes and notebooks [click here](https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005557-How-to-back-up-export-and-restore-import-notes-and-notebooks). 2.) If the first option does not work for you, then the are few work arounds you can use to separate/archive your notes without exporting them out of Evernote. * Assign a Tag of "Archive" to ALL notes you would like to archive and don't want to include in Searches (use search term "-tag:Archive" to any search you want to EXCLUDE those OLD Notes-tag:archive). * Move ALL Notes to a Notebook, or Stack, named "Archive" (for example). the result of option that is the closed Option not work still see the old article and tag. The actual request is to make is possible as requested not see the old article and tag ones they are in the archive. it wanted can see by selecting the option to search in the archive as well t hen atou als soo the tags forr mthe arichve. so you can use evernote more efficient and still have access to the old stored in fmration.
  18. Hi everyone! I'm creating a little python application you can use to backup your entire evernote. Basically it opens a little dialog with all your notebooks, ask yuo for a local directory and you can choose wich notebooks to exports. The application will create a directory with the notebook title, an md file for every note in that directory and if the notes has attachments the app will create a directory with all the attachments inside it. This dir will have the name of the note. I would like to hear your opinions: 1- do you think it could be a useful application? It is for me, but I don't know if someone else could find it useful. 2- do you know if there is already something around doing quite the same things? and, maybe for the future, if you want to try it, let me know! Thank you! David
  19. Hello, I know there is no Evernote client for Linux. For the moment I am ok using Evernote Web. But I would like to know if there is a way to backup the notes and store them locally as text files. I am on Debian (Jessie). I found GeekNote but I am not sure they provide that feature. Thanks
  20. Hi I run an old version of Evernote (2.1.0.327). I have been taking notes for several years and it has been good. Upgrading to Windows 10, I am unable to install this version of Evernote. I keep getting an error. Something about "failed to load a dll:enlnst" and Setup terminates Has anybody seen this problem? So I then thought of installing the latest version, export all my notes from the previous version and import it in the new version. In the newer versions, it is unable to import older note version files. So does this not work? Am kind of stuck now.. Any help will be most appreciated. Thanks Vasu
  21. I'm using an AppleScript (from the former Evernote Ambassador) to export each notebook to its own ENEX backup. For some reason, the script fails every time after exporting the same 6 notebooks. It never gets to the seventh. I can't even figure out if the seventh is corrupted or contains a un-exportable note because EN isn't exporting in alphabetical order. Help? I use notebook organization, and EN's bulit-in export ignores notebooks. Thus, I need a backup system like this script that does per-notebook backups without failing. Here's the script, the exported result up until the failure, my list of notebooks. You can see that the export starts with the "Project..." notebooks, and even those out of order, so I don't see a way to predict the notebook causing the export to fail with the confusing (because the script was using the existing directory) "no such file or directory" error. set curDate to do shell script "date +'%Y%m%d'" -- Change the path below to the location you want the notes to be exported set exportPath to "/Volumes/Documents Drive/Crucial Files/Systems - Global/Evernote Backups/" do shell script "if [ ! -e " & exportPath & " ]; then mkdir " & exportPath & "; fi;" with timeout of (30 * 60) seconds tell application "Evernote" repeat with nb in every notebook of application "Evernote" set theName to the name of nb set matches to find notes "notebook:" & "\"" & theName & "\"" set f to exportPath & theName & "-" & curDate & ".enex" export matches to f end repeat end tell end timeout
  22. I have Evernote on my phone. Blocked off from internet by a firewall so that notes do not sync into the clouds. Now I decided to back up the notes, so I looked for a .exb file. To do that I used the following commands: C:\Users\User> adb shell shell@MyPhone:/ $ su su root@myPhone:/ # ls -R | grep -i '\.exb$' ls -R | grep -e -i '\.exb$' root@myPhone:/ # ls -R | grep -i -e *.exb ls -R | grep -e -i *.exb Neither command finds any files. I can find other file types, but not this one. Where can I find the notes on my Android phone and back them up?
  23. I've looked everywhere and I find that you can make a copy of your databases for backup purposes, but what happens if you move that to Dropbox on your local drive instead? Wouldn't that be a backup. Dropbox lets you go back and restore files if needed. So rather than C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Evernote\Evernote\Databases, just change it to something like C:\Dropbox\Evernote?
  24. As a premium subscriber - I want evernote to make my versioned notebooks available in evernote markup as git repositories. The minimum implementation would be a daily cron or similar to export/update a personal read-only git repo for version controlled backups. A backup is not a backup if it cannot be restored, it is an archive at best. Next step is to allow me to restore my evernote information from my Evernote git repository. The rationale: I have an easy backup mechanism - running git clone on a regular basis. Anyone who can use git, will want (and understand) this feature, which would be amazing for Windows, OsX, and Linux It makes it easier for people to do whatever they want with regards to personal automation around their evernote notes. It will lower the barrier for innovation on evernote content on all platforms. If write access allowed, It makes it easier to use any other external text/xml manipulation tool to update evernote. Make it easier to detect and track changes in your documents, as git is a mature tool for this, and so are the tools that use it. This "git backup" feature has the side benefit of making it easier for mature 3rd party tools on unsupported platforms e.g. Linux, OpenBSD, or anywhere GUI's fail, but git works!. That's it. This is what i am campaigning for now.
