  1. How to Restore Selected Notes from Mac Time Machine to EN Mac Ver 2.0 Nov 23, 2015 This question seems to come up often, so I thought I'd post these steps to a new thread that is easily referenced/viewed by all. Please post below if you have any questions about this process, see any issues with it, or have suggestions to improve it. One very important concept to keep in mind is that if you restore Evernote from a backup that is older than your current account, when you sync after the restore the data from the EN Cloud will overwrite all Notes that were changed since the backup. Thus, if you were trying to restore specific Note(s) to a previous version, the previous version will be lost when you do a sync. So what you have to do is to export to ENEX all of the Notes of interest AFTER you restore from backup, and then sync, and then import these ENEX files back into Evernote. These are the steps to do exactly that. Sync EN Mac OPTIONABLE -- Export to ENEX all Local Notebooks you have, with each NB to a separate ENEX file. This is an extra safety precaution in case you have to do a clean install. All of your sync'd Notes will be downloaded from the EN Cloud Then you can import your Local NBs from these ENEX files Disconnect from Internet to prevent Evernote from further syncs Quit EN Mac (app and menu) OPTIONABLE -- Backup everything Evernote (app and data) This is an extra safety precaution in case everything becomes lost/corrupted You will most likely not need this backup See Location of Evernote Data Folder for EN Mac. Note that TM does not support the backup of a specific folder. It does a backup of everything, except for folders/files you specifically exclude. You can use the Mac Archive utility to create a compressed zip file of your Evernote Folder, but you need to open Archive first and set its Preferences to output the zip file to a location outside of your Evernote folder. Best location is to an external drive. Rename the existing Evernote folder (see Step 5.3) and the Evernote.app to "ORIG." & current name. So, for example, it would be: ORIG.com.evernote.Evernote Do a TM restore of the entire Evernote data folder & app from when you know the Notes of interest were still there (If you can't find your backup, see instructions below to Show Hidden Files) Start EN Mac Find your notes and export to ENEX, with each NB in a separate ENEX file outside of the Evernote folder (like your Documents folder) (be sure to check the box for "Include Tags") OPTIONABLE -- For extra safety you might also export these Notes to HTML Exit Evernote (app and menu) Rename the Evernote folder (which was from the restore) and Evernote.app to "OLD." & current name. Rename the original Evernote folder & app from Step 6 ("ORIG.") back to the original name Start EN Mac Import the ENEX files you created in Step 9. This puts them in a Local Notebook. Update/Restore to the Original Sync'd Notebook Move them into a sync'd Notebook OR If the Note(s) still exist in a sync'd NB, but need replacing, you can copy/paste the contents from the restored Note into the original sync'd Note. This will maintain any/all Note Links to the original sync'd Note. If everything looks good, connect to Internet and sync. Note that all Notes added or changed in your sync'd NBs will go against your monthly upload allowance. When you are sure everything has been updated properly, you can delete the Notes imported to the Local NBs in Step #15. Optional: I would zip the ENEX files created in Step #9, and put them on an external drive for safe keeping, then delete the ENEX files. Proceed with caution! Do not start this process until you fully understand all steps. I have NOT actually tested this process, so be careful. If you can't find the backup you want in TM, you might need to tell the Mac Finder to show all folders/files. How to show hidden files in Finder on OS X If you use OS X 10.9 Mavericks or OS X 10.10 Yosemite, follow these steps to show hidden files in Finder: 1) Launch Terminal. 2) Copy/paste or type in the following command defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -boolean true ; killall Finder How to hide hidden files in Finder on OS X Follow these steps if you want to hide the files and folders you previously revealed. Note this works with OS X Mavericks and Yosemite. 1) Launch Terminal. 2) Copy/paste or type in the following command defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -boolean false ; killall Finder References: Evernote Backup and Restore Options How to back up (export) and restore (import) notes and notebooks using ENEX files Time Machine The Best Mac Backup Software of 2015 | Top Ten Reviews
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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 .
  8. 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!

    How to backup Evernote files to hard drive

    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!
  10. 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

    Download all PDFs from Evernote

    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.
  12. 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?
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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/
  18. 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."
  19. 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.
  20. 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...
  21. 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
  22. 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
