  1. Hi everyone, I am a digital hoarder and I am looking for a way to take my notes out of Evernote...Basically, I find myself using Evernote more and more and I am getting worried that 1 of 2 scenarios will eventually play out: 1) Evernote goes belly up some day taking my notes and files with it <or> 2) I grow tired of Evernote a year or two but my files will effectively be held hostage in Evernote's cloud....with that said I have read a few different things on the ability to export your notes but I can't find the option anywhere on the web interface. What am I missing? I am currently using Evernote through Chrome on a Linux machine (Mint right now but I'm a disto hopper). Could my problem be that I need to use the Mac or Windows client? If so is there a work around as I have neither? Everpad (Linux client) doesn't give me an option to export and simply lets me add, edit, and delete notes. Any suggestions?
  2. Hi guys. I will be formatting my Acer ultrabook running on windows7 and I was wondering what is the best way in which I can backup all my things. I was reading this [1]Howtogeek article and I was wondering if Backing up my evernote database instead of exporting every single notebook will do the trick for me. I think I am being a little paranoid but I am not willing to take any chances should there be any problem when I try to sync the stuff in the servers to my laptop. Any suggestions ?

  3. I have just subscribed to Crashplan, and if it is true that you can request a restore at any time backwards (from the service started of course) and get a backup from that moment, this is really great. But I do not really understand how this can be possible as Evernotes exb file in the database folder is being updated many times every day. My exb file is currently 4.6 GB and growing, and this would mean that every day this file would upload for example 20 time meaning an upload of 92 GB. Such amounts of data cannot be offered at that price, considering that it should be a time machine !? Anyone has a deeper knowledge about how this works? the only explanation I could see is if Crashplan can make incremental backups of only changes in such large files.
  4. Hi I tried to find some information on this but I could not find an answer: Regarding the "track changes" feature of Evernote Premium: When I work on a text document - how many times a day will Evernote produce a version (snapshot) of that document? I am asking because I want to use that feature as a backup solution for writing in times when my computer gets hung up or whenever I need to go back to the history of my document no matter wether it is one minute ago, one hour, one day or one week. Evernote just tells me that it produces several times a day just a snapshot? And will that be a pdf or a workable text document? Thanks for answers. Vulgo
  5. Below is how to ensure you have a backup of your EN notes on your Mac. I have Googled and looked for ages on how to do this and there has been nothing really explaining how it works. I was tempted to ask here, but I will put up what I have found instead, and ask the knowledgable community here to correct me if I have erred for each point... 1. Evernote keeps all your stuff on their servers. If you have the desktop version, all your stuff is also placed on your own hard drive. 2. Every time you add a note, it goes to the hard drive and also to the EN servers. 3. If you have a local notebook, your additions only go to your hard drive. 4. Your stuff is kept on your 'Library' folder on your Mac. This is hidden in Finder. To find it open Finder, then click on 'Go' in the information bar at the top. At the same time press and hold down the Option key. Click on the Library folder. 5. Follow the path User/Library/Application Support/Evernote. All your stuff is in there. (To continue go accounts/Evernote/username/content. All your notes are here.) 6. Copy and paste this folder (Evernote) onto a USB external drive to back up. 7. If you have time machine running, it is already being backed up. If there are any errors in my statements above, could you please be so kind as to point it out. I think this may be helpful to some.
  6. We currently are on Evernote Business. 5 users are one it, all with admin rights, etc. We will be using approximately 400 business notebooks in the business library shared to each user, with full admin rights. Within each notebook will be 4 notes which we will keep our data organized. Keeping our data organized is key. I was able to backup and restore all the notes, however the notes simply restored in one big notebook, losing all of the notebook organization. I do have tags on each note. Is there any way to backup the entire notebook structure along with the respective notes and restore them in that fashion? It would be a tremendous pain to recreate hundreds of notebooks and reorganize everything. Evernote Business responded that their was no way to do this. We are all using Evernote Business for Windows Desktop Client. Thanks.
  7. Good day all, I'm learning how to backup my Evernote databases, and stumbled upon the article below: http://www.howtogeek.com/163349/how-to-backup-your-evernote-notebooks-just-in-case/ The article is very informative and explains in detail how to backup Evernote in various ways. The exporting notes method is great. I'll definitely be using that to hold onto specific notes/notebooks I really want to make sure are backed up properly. I know the exporting notes option cannot be automated, but the link above does state that the Evernote database files contained in the AppData folder can be backed up automatically using any ole' backup solution. Just to be sure we're on the same page, I'm at the following file path: C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Evernote\Evernote\Databases I can set my backup program to backup that particular path daily. My only question involves restoring Evernote from the database files I see in the database folder (The local .EXB files). Let's say that in the unfortunate event of a crash, I need to restore Evernote based on these .EXB files I've been backing up. How exactly would I restore it though Evernote? Your help is greatly appreciated, Matt
  8. I am currently evaluating Evernote on Android. Much to my surprise I found no built-in Widget for the homescreen. Futhermore I found no backup option. Did I miss something? I don't want to use additional external Apps for these tasks. Evernote should have them included. Peter
  9. I somehow lost all my local notebooks. I thought I'd exported everything before reinstalling Windows, but apparently I didn't. The hopefully good news is that I do have all my old .exb files, and I think the exb should have all those notebooks and attached PDFs inside it? (I've got the whole evernote folder with Announcement / AutoUpdate/Databases/Dict/LocalStorage (this one is empty by the way) and Logs). Is there any way to import the .exb into my current synced notebook without overwriting anything, so I can drag and drop the old local notes into a synced notebook? Thanks!
  10. ok - i made sure this configuration (understandably unsupported) was stable for over a month before taking time to post about it... This solution is for those of you looking for a combined backup and mobility strategy who have a need to use the full-powered client (particularly due to Note Links). I personally use my iOS clients 70% of the time. My MacBook has 2 HD partitions: one for Mac OS X and another for DATA. The entire HD is backed up using Time Machine on a Time Capsule. I have an 32GB SD for backups. I created an encrypted disk image (sparse bundle so it's Time Machine friendly) on my DATA partition that mounts to /Volumes/Evernote - I moved the contents of my root Evernote directory to this volume. I made sure everything is synced, quit Evernote.app before ejecting the disk image. I copied the disk image to my SD. now my Evernote DB is portable. it's just a matter of creating a symlink in the host user directory to the mount on whatever host machine I use. I tried this on another Macbook and it works fine. As for a redundant semi-live backup: instead of copying the entire disk image. you can mount the disk imagine on the SD and Evernote has no idea if the disk image is hosted on the data partition or the SD. do a sync, quit the application and voila! u have a database that is up-to-date, mobile (esp if you use a microSD), ready to use on another computer with little to no wait time. hope this is useful for those of you out there seeking mobility freedom ;-)
  11. I’m about to restore my main office machine from an image backup that’s a month old. I assume EN should be fine and will just sync as appropriate (and then I can update the version of needed). Correct? And EN on my other machine is irrelevant, of course. Correct? Thanks. Jay
  12. Hi! I have been making Local backups of my Evernote account by saving this folder:/Users/Saierlab/Library/Application Support/Evernote to an external drive. I just started a new notebook, and I anticipate it will be very media heavy. Im certain I will run out of bandwidth real fast, so I don't want this one syncing with Evernote online. Otherwise it will ***** over my more casual notebooks. So I made this notebook LOCAL ONLY. Heres my question.. If I keep making backups of this folder. Then one day I transfer this content to a new computer. And lets say my backup file is old, BUT all my non-local books have been synced properly on my online account. Will this allow me to restore my LOCAL ONLY notebook, and fetch any new content on my Evernote account that may have been missed? Or will I be stuck at wherever my backup was made? Thanks!
  13. How to backup your Windows client Evernote database Invoke Evernote Go to tools/options/general tab. This shows the folder where your Evernote database & associated files live on your Windows computer. Make a note of it. Completely exit Evernote. IE, make sure no EN icon is showing in the system tray. Copy & paste the folder noted above. I prefer to append the date of the backup in the folder name in YYYYMMDD format. IE, I will copy "My EN Files" to "My EN Files 20111209". This is helpful when you have multiple backups b/c you can sort them chronologically & also quickly know when the backup was done. That's it. FYI, the most crucial file is the YourUserName.exb file where "YourUserName" is your EN account login name. But I prefer to backup all the files. If you wish, you can simply copy the exb file. EDIT on 2/3/2012: ALL notebooks, regardless if they are local (non-sync'd) or sync'd are stored in your exb file. All attachments are also stored in your exb file. IOW, this gets the whole kit & kaboodle. (Or is that kitten kaboodle???)
  14. I use File|Export (Windows version) to export my notes in ENEX format. (I also save my data by backing up the .exb file.) But how may versions of the .enex export files should I keep, just the most recent one? Thanks.
  15. I am a newbie to this forum, in fact I just signed up today to post this message. However, this doesn't mean I am new to Evernote per se, since, I have been using it since it's conception and absolutely love it. It is a life saver, particularly for myself, whom works as a freelancer. I will spare any further personal introduction, since it's not pertinent to the topic at hand. So, in July of this year, I decided to do a backup of all my notes (saved as one large (4 GB) .enex file). I had roughly 4,000~ notes at that point. However, I made a rather erroneous choice due to a case of overwhelm and have since learnt that my decision was reactive and misinformed. To cut a long story short, I was using Evernote to manage about twenty different projects (although this wasn't intentional, I didn't think Evernote was wise for this purpose, but, it gradually just happened, since I use Evernote hours each day), as well as using it to store almost every other detail in my life, that one can imagine.. sans, anything that could have long term consequences if there was a security breach such as bank account details, passwords etc. (I know I could encrypt those, but, still haven't felt completely at ease with that just yet). Needless to say, one day I realized it was hard to focus on any one project at one time, so, I made a choice to back everything up (using the rather poor choice of .enex instead of doing a direct database copy or using .exb - the latter two I have since learnt about after researching this very topic in the past week) and then proceeded to delete a lot of notebooks which whilst they contained perhaps useful notes, I didn't really need for the next five projects. This was all with the understanding that I could simply restore those from the .enex file at a later date. This exercise was more for my own clarity and to prevent any latent ADHD from disturbing my productivity. (Side note: I have now made the wise choice to migrate the projects to a proper project management tool and am happy with this decision!). So, fast forward to now, essentially I now have 2800 notes within Evernote, I'd say about 800 of which were created since the aforementioned deletion, and now I'd essentially like to use Evernote for the purpose I feel it's best suited for -- to collate and store a vast searchable collection of notes. So, this comes to question time... My question is.. I'd like to restore my old notes database (the one created in July with 4,000 notes), but, will this eradicate or delete any notes since that period? To clarify further, the way I figured I'd have to do this is to delete the database on one of my machine's (whilst disconnected from Internet) and then import the .enex file and then sync it. However, my concern is that this would cause Evernote servers to abandon my other notes or would they simply still sync since one of my other machines has a copy of the latest notes? I am not familiar with exactly how the synchronisation process works and what will happen. Therefore, if this method has the potentiality for me to lose my new notes (the ones created since July), does anyone recommend a more effective and safe solution for restoration? Summary: I want my old backed up notes and the notes created since then to be merged into one Evernote database (and naturally subsequently synced across all devices - Three windows, Two iMacs, iPad, Android phone and iPhone. I appreciate your time in reading a long introduction to the issue.. just figured since I'm a newbie to the forums, I should provide more information. And if anyone has any suggestions, I'm certainly open to them. Many thanks! Rich
  16. I considered Cloudq but it's kind of pricey. I'm looking to automatically backup my EN Database locally or to a Cloud Solution; preferably DropBox since I already use it. When I tried configuring DropBox to backup my EN Database, I get an error, "The action cannot be completed because the file is open in Evernote. Close the file and try again." Any advice? https://www.cloudhq.net/dropbox
  17. I would love a feature that would allow automated and scheduled export of notebooks. This would be hugely valuable to any individuals or groups that need frequent local backups of Evernote. Additionally, being able to automatically export those notebooks separately would be useful, especially because people might have personal and work notebooks on the same account, or have notebooks for several projects that should be kept separate. A little more detail: I am a graduate student working in a biology lab. I and several of my colleagues are have recently adopted Evernote to manage our daily lab data, but we need to have frequent backups to our lab's servers. Currently we have everyone making manual exports (of .enex files) every week and then automate the rest of the process. The problem is that people forget. I have found a 3rd party solution (http://evernoteexporter.codeplex.com/releases/view/79142), but it exports all notebooks together. This would be awesome if it existed in Evernote - it's the primary reason that my bosses have been hesitant to allow us to use Evernote. But if anyone knows of 3rd party apps or extensions that can do this same thing, I would appreciate a link!
  18. Specifically the app-store version of EN? I would like to automatically backup the database so I don't have to manually export my notes and back them up like that.. would backing up the database do the same exact thing? If I were to place that database into a new install on a new computer, would all my notes and tags come up as I would normally see them?
  19. I think it would cool to have a back up button just built into the menu. Instead of having to export notebooks, I can just click on File or whatever menu and hit backup and it just creates a backup copy of my Evernote database wherever I chose to save it to.
  20. Ok, so I made the mistake of buying an xperia android (slow as hell with fail sony programming and it gets worse over time, with added touchscreen glitches). Now I want to reset the phone to factory settings, and maybe try a faster OS. Before that I need to back up my stuff, including the notes. So I have a number of options... 1. email them... lol! 2. sync to an evernote account... a. create account on the evernote site b. set up evernote on android to use account c. sync... wait what?? the sync button is greyed out... d. oh! up the top, I can change from "Notes" to "<my account>", which tells me the account for syncing is separate e.1. bugger! e.2. BUGGER! f. maybe I can copy the notes from the what-appears-to-be-default-null-account "Notes" to the actual syncing account g. no! h. bugger! 3. Find the notes in the filesystem and copy them manually a. I gather they're stores in "enml", some xml format I can happily open in a text editor b. Found /Android/data/com.sonyericsson.notes/files/ but there's nothing there c. Found /com.sonyericsson.notes/ but that's only got the files from the synced account, not the "Notes" dummy account d. I guess the default account is hidden, perhaps permanently until I root the phone e. bugger 4. Ask on the forums... Please, can someone help me? Thanks in advance
  21. Hello everyone. I'm using evernote windows client at my office. Yesterday I customized some interface of the windows client. Like view, tag shortcut, toolbar, etc. And I also use evernote in my home with evernote windows client. So I just wonder how can I copy my settings of windows client of my office to my windows client of my home? I tried to find settings file, but I can't find one. Anyway, Thank you.
  22. Hi Im using OSX Lion and Evernote Premium version 5.0.7. I'd like to save to another location my notes that are synced to my computer. I have read that they can be found in /user/library/application support. Not on my machine. I also read that if you download the OSX app from Evernote then the directory abpve gets created, if you donwload it form the app store, as I did then...??? Does anyone know where the synced notes are stored so the I can save them as a back up. Regards Del Jones
  23. 1. Where can I find the files that are being saved to my Mac when using the Evernote app for my Mac? 2. Is there a way to manually back it up? Thanks.
  24. Win7でアプリ版の4.5を使用しています。 添付ファイルに関する質問です。 ノートにファイルを添付すると、\Evernote\Databases\Attachments に添付したファイルが 作成されるようなのですが… 1)拡張子が「.backup」の他に、「.docx」や「.xlsx」などの生のファイルもあります。   この生のファイルは削除してもよいのでしょうか? 2)同じファイル名でファイル名の後ろに[1]や[2]が付いたファイルがあります。   (たとえば「データ.xlsx.backup」と「データ[1].xlsx.backup」など)   ノートに表示されているファイル名には[1]はついていませんが、   Excelで開くとタイトルバーには[1]付きで表示されます。   これは何故でしょうか?   更新日時が古いファイルは削除してもよいのでしょうか? 3)すでに削除したノートに添付していたファイルも残っているようです。   ※左パネルの「属性」-「次を含む」-「添付」で添付されているノートを確認しました。   このファイルは削除してもよいのでしょうか? 4)拡張子が「.eninfo」というファイルもあります。   これは何のためのファイルなのでしょうか? ご存知の方、ご教授ください。
