  1. 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
  2. For Valentine's day, I'm offering up a simple Windows PowerShell script that you can use to backup your Evenote notes. It uses the Evernote auxiliary program, ENScript.exe, to export Evernote notebooks to respective Evenote format (.ENEX) files. The script is very dumb. You'll need to change the script to specify a backup directory location where the backups will land. You may need to change the script to specify the location of ENScript.exe. The script will create a new directory in that location with a name that's based on the current date, and write the .ENEX files in that directory. There will be a .ENEX file for each notebook (which is what you want, because notebook name is not stored in a .ENEX file, so if you need to restore you can get the source notebook from the .ENEX filename). Note: I am not a PowerShell expert, and while I've tested the script, it may not be particularly robust in the face of errors. In normal use it appears to work, but use it at your own risk. This script comes with a no-money-back guarantee. Oh, and feel free to modify it for your own use, or offer changes / suggestions / comments. I may or may not respond. You'll notice I have a list of Todos in the script. I may or may not deliver on those either. You may need to change your execution policy to let this script operate properly. The command I used was: "Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned". In addition, you may want to make a Windows shortcut for the script. You'll need to search the web for that, but it can be done. Take the following code and save it as a PowerShell script file Ii.e., with an extension ".PS1") somewhere that PowerShell can find it. I called mine "ENBackup.PS1". Creative, no? # Simple Evernote backup PowerShell Script # # Backs up all notebooks in your account as .enex files, located in a designated # directory. The backup directory name is generated by a base name with the # current date (mm-dd-yy) appended. # # Todo: # * Specify backup directory base via command-line # * Backup single notebook specified via command-line # * Restore notebook # You may need to modify this according to the location of ENScript.exe $ENscript = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Evernote\Evernote\ENScript.exe" # Modify backup directory base as desired $BackupLocation = "J:\Backups\Evernote\" # Write out notebook names to a temporary file, one line at a time $tempfile = "notebooks.txt" & $ENscript listNotebooks >$tempfile $reader = [System.IO.File]::OpenText($tempfile) # Create a backup directory for this date # Get current date (mm-dd-yy) and append it to the backup directory base $date = get-date -uformat "%m-%d-%y" $BackupDir = $BackupLocation + "Backup " + $date # Make the actual backup directory if ( ! (Test-Path $BackupDir) ) { md $BackupDir } # Process notebook names try { for( ; ; ) { # fetch a notebook name $name = $reader.ReadLine() if ($name -eq $null) { break } # write out the backup file for this notebook: <notebook name>.enex "Backing up " + $name + "..." $BackupFileName = $BackupDir + "\" + $name + ".enex" & $ENscript exportNotes /q "notebook:$name" /f $BackupFileName } # Show your work dir $BackupDir } finally { $reader.Close() } # delete the temp file remove-item $tempfile Have fun & Happy Valentine's Day for all of the Evernoters!!! 2/24/14 - Edit: Fixed ENScript exportNotes query. It was missing the 'notebook:' specifier. Also fixed problems with notebooks containing spaced in their names. 7/30/19: Edit: Script changed on to reflect more realistic location of ENScript.exe
  3. 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
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. Hello, I am a co-founder of Backupery, we are making local backup software. I am glad to present you Backupery for Evernote application. It is a lightweight application that makes automatic backup of Evernote notes to local hard drive. Here are some highlights: The application is very small (~700KB) and easy to use. Backup is started by scheduler, so a user doesn't need to run it manually. We don't send any bit of your data beyond your computer, so all your data belongs to you only, forever. The software works without internet connection (it is essential if you are travelling, for example). Since the app utilizes Evernote-standart export technology (ENEX), no third-party tools are required for restoring (Evernote client is enough). Since we are using ENEX-export, the app backups local (unsynchronized) notebooks and unsynchronized notes. You could read more and download the application here: http://www.backupery.com/products/backupery-for-evernote/ It is for Windows only for now, but we are working on Mac version also. Any questions, suggestions or ideas are highly appreciated, please let me know here, or use contact@backupery.com. Best, John
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. 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!
  12. Hi everyone I use Evernote quite extensively, I have a premium account and end up uploading a lot of data, mostly .zip and images. I have my own way of using Evernote, I found thats how it works anyway because you have this open canvas almost and you are set to figure out how to make use of it. This is great and I have a cool system but the problem is I want to make use of exporting to a .enex file. As you may know that's the native Evernote export database, and if you want you can export notebooks or your entire system. My set up is like this: I don't use search that much, I don't use tags and have about two notebooks. All of my organizing comes from note links, You know the ones where you right click and copy note-link, and then paste that into a new note. That's it, my entire Evernote system is based on note links. I really like it and it works for me. I guess my system is like a private website/private wiki/private note system/private journal. Its really useful. Except the size, I need to at some point export some older parts of my system (because some synced computers have low Hard disk space). Moving a ton of notes into another notebook thankfully does not effect my note links. However exporting this for archiving purposes is a huge issue. If you export to enex and then import, every single link will not work Here is the question, is my computer doing something abnormal for evernote. Why does exporting and importing lose every single internal link. You can test this by making just two notes, link one to another and export to enex, and then import, the links will be broken. If this isn't just me, can I submit this as a feature request? I really need to be able to export my notebooks without losing my primary navigation system. Cheers Joseph Goss
  13. Greetings fellow Evernote users. I am trying to find a way to download the PDFs I have saved in Evernote to my computer. I have so many notebooks that they are not all syncing and I want to have access to them so I want to download them to my Computer then upload them to my could drive. Any ideas or suggestions instead of going through each notebook individually? Thank you in advance.
  14. 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?
  15. 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
  16. Restoring Notes From a Mac Time Machine Backup As far as I can tell, there is no easy way to restore selected Notes from a TM backup. If you know of an easy way, PLEASE post it here -- all us Mac users really need it. EDIT: Thu, Jan 7, 2016 Since I posted this thread, I have written the following procedure: How to Restore Selected Notes from Mac Time Machine (TM) to EN Mac GrumpyMonkey and I got into a discussion about this in another thread. Our discussion was really off-topic for that thread, so I decided to start a new thread where we all could properly discuss this very important subject. I'll start with a quote from GM: GM, I would love for the process to restore selected Notes from TM to be easy. Maybe I missed something in the links you provided, but I read them all, and none of them really provided an EASY solution. In fact they all discussed how difficult/hard the process is. If I missed the easy restore process, please point it out. The problem really starts with finding the Note, or Notes that you want restored. Although the Notes are stored in files, the file name is NOT the Note Title or anything usable to the end user. In fact, I could not find the Note Title anywhere, but maybe I don't know where to look. And what if you want to restore a whole Notebook? How would you find all Notes for that Notebook?? Even if you are luck enough to find the Notes you want to restore, using TM to restore them will be a short-lived victory. As soon as you sync, your restored Note will be overwritten from the EN Cloud Service (see the quote from Ref#3). So, if you know of one source that provides detailed steps to easily restore selected Notes from TM, please post it. Here is what I found from your links: 1. https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/23558-single-file-recovery-from-time-machine/ 2. https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/14293-restore-from-time-machine/ 3. https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/20144-help-restoring-deleted-material/
  17. Just for posterity... For those who stumble across this thread via a forum/ Google search, here's a straightforward blog post on how to back up and restore your Evernote data: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2932989/syncings-not-enough-how-to-back-up-and-restore-your-evernote-data.html The premise is the following: "Syncing's not enough... syncs can go awry. Cloud services can go down. Here's how to ensure your notes are there when you need them."
  18. I would like to manually backup my EN database files. I couldn't find them in what I thought was the correct location, so I clicked on Open database folder in About Evernote and this took me to a folder entitled www.evernote.com located in Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote/accounts. In the www.evernote.com folder there are two folders, one entitled props and the entitled with a number only. The latter one has a bunch of files and folders in it, including some with interesting names like atlas, chunks, purgatory and puppetmaster. Do I need to copy all of these or is there a particular file and folder to locate? I was looking for a file that ended with exb but I can't find one...
  19. So how do you do this I want a physical hard copy of all my evernote notes and attachments in an evernote readable format backed up onto my local hard drive exporting out notes just exports XML which is simply going to be text based notes, tags, among other things - but not attachments or how can i back my attachments up easily
  20. Here's an Applescript you can use to back up all your notes into individual .enex notebook files. Only have 6.0.5 Direct Download version, so I can confirm that it works on that version (both on Yosemite and Mavericks). Be sure to set your osx username and that you set a valid path. with timeout of (30 * 60) seconds tell application "Evernote" activate set myFolder to "/Users/USERNAME/Desktop/EvernoteBackup/" -- path to backup folder delay 7 -- need some time for EN to launch if it's not already running. Raise number if needed. set myNotebooks to every notebook repeat with selectedNoteBook in myNotebooks set theNotebook to (the name of selectedNoteBook) set theNotes to every note in notebook theNotebook set myFile to (myFolder & theNotebook & ".enex") export theNotes to myFile end repeat end tell end timeout
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. Dear Evernote! I love your service, and am actively promoting it to acquaintances. However, there are two backup-related features I am missing. If you fix these, my Evernote experience would increase significantly. Situation: In becoming a heavy user of Evernote, I am more and more dependent on the safety and security of all my files stored in the service. If I, or other users of shared notebooks, accidentally delete files, I do not want to risk losing them forever. Therefore, I now export my notebooks manually once a week. Still, this kind of backup is cumbersome, and at the mercy of human memory of remembering to do it. Furthermore, all backed up notes from many different notebooks are all squeezed into one backup notebook, making my Evernote backup files messy and unorganized. I therefore have two suggestions for you, which I hope you will consider. Suggestions: 1. Adding an integrated scheduled / automated backup option that would automatically take backup of all, or selected, notebooks daily or weekly. 2. Allowing users to export Evernote notebooks in an organized manner that includes one's initial Evernote structure, i.e. keeping one's distinguished notebooks, with accompanying notes, in the Evernote backup file. Would you consider these suggestions? Best regards, a passionate Evernote user from Norway. Ps! With regards to scheduled backup, I tried third-party app "Evernote Exporter" (http://evernoteexporter.codeplex.com/releases/view/79142), but could not make this work. A solution to suggestion 1 could be similar to this.
