  1. Sorry - please ignore this question. I found the answer right after I wrote the question. I'm a new user but I've read that the only way to avoid syncing selected notes or notebooks is to set up a local notebook. But I can't find information on how to set up a local notebook. I'll be putting some notes in my pc that I do not want to show up on my iphone. Can someone tell me how to do that? Thanks.
  2. In the following thread, a user discovered that he/she did not have the option to create a Local notebook: EN provided the user a workaround, and also communicated the following to the user: "I was forwarded this ticket from another representative in order to help you out with the inability of your Evernote account to create local notebooks. This is by design, but there is a current work around. A little back story - Evernote is studying the possibility of eliminating local notebooks all together and moving to a completely synced service. The reason we're trying this out is because synced notes can always count with our Note History feature as a back up, or "safety net" to recover previous versions of your note if something is erased by mistake. Local notebooks don't currently have any backup tool as such, therefore we feel that this is not the fair and compete solution our users expect from us." I really hope this is some kind of misunderstanding, but if EN is indeed going to eliminate Local notebooks, perhaps Evernote should change their motto from "Your external brain" to "Your external brain for anything you are OK with hackers, foreign governments, NSA, and Evernote employees seeing."
  3. Is there any way to generate a list of "local" notebooks? I use over 150 notebooks and discovered that two or three had been inadvertently set up as local notebooks which obviously resulted in them not synchronizing. My note count is off slightly from my web evernote data. I suspect there may be one more local notebook. Is there any way of checking without manually going through each notebook and checking its properties?
  4. I have a local notebook on my desktop pc. I'd like to have access to this notebook on my laptop when I'm traveling. Any suggestions for an elegant solution to this that does not run the risk of data corruption or loss? One approach is to use a sync utility like FreeFileSync to sync the entire 'Databases' folder between desktop and laptop before the trip, then repeat at the end of the trip. I suppose any changes made on mobile devices after the database folder sync but before I run EN on the laptop will be detected by EN's servers as changes and properly synced. Any potential problems with this option? The above is not particularly elegant as it syncs far more than is necessary. EN's servers already sync all the synchronized notebooks; all I need to sync is the local notebook. So maybe use a sync utility to sync the backed up enex file across to the laptop, and then import it into EN on the laptop. Then at the end of the trip, make a backup of the enex file, sync it to the desktop, delete the local notebook on the desktop, import the enex file. This requires many steps and is ripe for human error. Plus it would destroy internal note links, so that's a non-starter. Any other approaches (beyond simply moving notes from local notebook to synchronized notebook)?
  5. Hi, I am on Basic, and use Evernote mostly with local notebooks (hosted on my Mac laptop) with a smaller number of notebooks on a non-local folder, which I want synced to my Android phone. I started getting notifications earlier this week that my monthly usage has been used up, which I did not understand, since I had not been using my "online" folder for creating new notebooks. Then I noticed that hundreds of my notes from my local notebooks have been transferred to my phone. My Evernote on my Mac laptop claims these notes all live in "local notebooks", however they have been transferred on my Android phone. I have no idea how this got activated (I certainly did not choose it), and it is not clear to me how to stop it. Any hints? Using Evernote 6.11 Beta 2 on macOS Sierra 10.12.4 Beta, and Evernote 7.9.8.2 on Android 6.0.1. With many thanks, --Christos
  6. Is it possible to restore local notebooks from a backup to v6.0.x, or should I just downgrade and pretend/wish this version never happened?
  7. Questions: 1) Which EN file on a Mac stores my local non-synced notes? I'm using EN v6. 2) How do I get the notes out of it and into a new one? 3) After trying to make a hack work how do I get even synced notes back into the desktop app? The Story: Apple had me erase / format my SSD storage drive and reinstall everything from scratch to fix a display problem, it wouldn't wake from sleep. While that worked I've had more than a few challenges getting my apps fully operational again. One problem is that the reinstalled Evernote didn't have my local non-synced notes. I'm using both CrashPlan and Time Machine but TM is a mess and wipes out my sparse file about once a week and starts over. My EN data on TM is lost. However, I have older backups in CP. I found this file buried a bunch of folders deep in the user library, LocalNoteStore.sqlite, and restored it to the desktop. The backup date is just before I cleaned my SSD drive. (No hard drive on a Retina version MBP.) My guess is that my local notes live in that database. I thought I was being cleaver and quit Evernote, renamed the existing db that was from the recent install, and dragged the restored version to that folder. Booted Evernote and nothing is there, not even the synced notes. Yes, I'm logged in. So I reversed that procedure and booted Evernote and still nothing although it is using the db I just renamed and then changed the name back to the original. It appears EN didn't like that hack. It refuses to download my synced notes. I can see them in the Web app though. Any ideas what to try next? I found nothing relevant online. Jim Santa Clara, CA
  8. Hello, I spent a week working in EN and cleaned things up, managed my tags and notebooks etc. I moved a lot of stuff around. I noticed weeks later, the peratory folder is holding hundreds of items. I am waiting for them to delete automatically on it's schedule, but they aren't. What is the schedule, is it a launch item or cron or internal to the app? If I want to start clean, or say I got a new computer, I know I can simply login and it will download from the web all my data. However, what about local notebooks, how do I get them over, and what if data from a local notebook is linked in some way to that of a non local one? Will the download of the non local notebooks and then the ultimate restore of local ones will re-hook up the links from one note to another? I honestly don't know the linking capabilities of Evernote very well, so this may not even matter. There may no the a way to link one note to the other, though i swear I have in the past, linked a reminder to another note or something to that effect. Can someone tell me the steps to go from the web store Mac version to a full clean reinstall to a new machine? Can someone also share with me all the locations of Evernote where it reads and writes data to as well as what they do, what are caches and safe to delete, etc. I have GB's of EB data locally, but only a few hundred MB in the cloud. And only 2-4 local notebooks, both of which only hold small amounts of data, nothing that could pop it up that high. There is ghost or stale data that needs cleaning, but I don't know what is safe and what is not. Thank you.
  9. I desperately need some help. I have Evernote on OSX Yosemite via the App Store. A few days ago, I went to update the Evernote, and it did not take (probably a network issue), and I ended up with a Evernote application that was damaged. So, I redownloaded Evernote. Opened it up, nothing was there. Logged in with my account, and synced. My online notes appeared. But my 1 local notebook is missing. I really need the notebook back. Looking in ~/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote/accounts/evernote.com/[random #]/content/ .... and another folder, I can see the PDFs, etc from my local notebook. So, I know I have my content still. (BTW It looks to me like Evernote moved all my old stuff into a different folder. Maybe. The directory listing of ~/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote and ~/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote/accounts/evernote.com/[random#] are slightly similar. Both have an announcements directory, atlas directory, and checkpoint file. Does anyone know if I can move the files from ~/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote/accounts/evernote.com/[random#] to ~/Library/Application Support/com.evernote.Evernote to get back my local notebook? If not, any ideas how I can get my local notebook back? Thanks, Colin
  10. The purpose of this post is to point how dangerous Evernote is with local notebooks. IF you are reading this post because you lost your notes stored in a local notebook, I would say your chances of getting those notes back are slim to none. Of my 7,000 notes in Evernote I keep all but a few hundred in synchronized notebooks. I have a few hundred vitally important notes that are high security which I did not want to store in the cloud, and these notes include over a hundred notes central to a lawsuit in which I am currently involved. I have no idea when this happened. I just did a search for one of these notes last week and realized that not only was it missing but all my local notes were missing. It could have happened last week, last month, 3 months ago, who knows? The reason I don't know when they were trashed is because I have had Evernote support advise me to reinstall Evernote on multiple occasions over the years. And I've also done upgrades over the years. I have been in touch with Evernote support, but they don't hold out much hope that this data will ever be recovered because I don't know when it was lost, and therefore to restore the files from an old backup is extremely difficult. Evernote support contacts me once or maybe twice a week (I am a Premium user), and never anything beyond an Email. In the last Email they said I need to just start doing manually searches in up to four possible folder locations (HOW IS IT THAT EVERNOTE DOESN'T EVEN KNOW WHERE THESE BACKFILES SHOULD BE??) and I just need to go day-by-day search old backups in each of the four locations until I find them. I've been working on this problem for two weeks now, and it has eaten up more hours than I know. The most irritating response I have received back is "well you should have backed up your local notebooks and put them somewhere safe before you ever did a reinstall." Well clearly. But the question is WHY or HOW would I know to do that? Consider: I have received multiple support Emails from Evernote on other issues that told me to just go ahead and reinstall Evernote and that would fix my problem. I don't remember any big warnings about serious data loss in any of those Emails. I set up these notebooks as local a long time ago, on a particular day and then forgot about it. The local/synchronized issue isn't forefront in any user's mind because it's not something they deal with more than once. Or at least they won't deal with it more than once unless Evernote trashes all their data. So expecting a user to always remain cognizant of something they did in a couple seconds years ago is unrealistic. Why, during the installation process, doesn't Evernote perform a check for local notebooks and then abandon the installation when it finds those notebooks, and then ask the user to either delete or backup before proceeding? One answer to the question directly above is that Evernote doesn't even know where those notebooks are located. As I said earlier, Evernote support has suggested three possible locations where those notebooks might be located. And that location isn't determined by the user, but by Evernote itself. The really unbearable thing in all this is that Evernote could certainly perform a check for local notebooks during the installation process, but they don't. I've been researching this issue in the Evernote forums and elsewhere and I am seeing a lot of people who have lost their most valuable information this way. And I am reading many posts on this issue that go back years. I actually had to give a presentation to Chicago Tribune reporters on using Evernote in their work, and a big question that came up was security. I discussed local notebooks and that answer satisfied many of them who have since started using Evernote (I was giving this presentation because am I developer for an Evernote product that I want them to buy). Now I have to go back to this whole group and share the terror of this story. There goes the Chicago Tribune account. But that is nothing compared to the data I lost.
  11. 1. Have I found the right files? On a Mac. In: Macintosh HD > Users > My Mac Username > Library > Containers > com.evernote Evernote > Data > Library > Application Support > Evernote > accounts > Evernote > *here there are two sets of data matching the Evernote usernames for two accounts* 2. If i copy those to somewhere else (e.g. dropbox), will I be able to drop them back into a new installation of Evernote on the same machine, or is it more complicated than that? Will this maintain my notebook structure, preferences, etc? 3. I'm guessing from what I've read and where I've found those files that my installation is from the App Store rather than the Evernote website - have I got that right? 4. If (3) is correct, can I install the website version over the old one, or do I have to delete the old one (and do I have to clean anything else up?) and install the new one? I know I can export all files, I know that will lose my notebook structure, which is fairly complex, so I'd rather not have to recreate it. I do have Time Machine backups anyway, but suspect that doesn't help if I'm installing a new/different version? Thanks! Edit to add: I found this: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/40541-where-is-the-local-copy-of-my-evernote-notes-on-my-computer/ - which suggests that the file directory structure above is what you'd expect to find on an iMac Fusion drive - not even sure what that is, but I've a Macbook Air with a SSD so unclear whether that applies.
  12. my windows crashed, and I lost all my local notebooks including notes for my phd thesis. is there anyway I can have them back. it is really urgent. I'v lost all data and information I'v gathered in the last 2 years!
  13. Where are the local files for the v5 client for mac? They used to be in ~/Library/App Support/Evernote... but I don't see them anymore. Did they move? Also, I want to be able to search and backup those files. If I lost my web account, and had to open a new one, how can I restore those locally backed up files? I'm verifying my disaster recovery plans. Thanks
  14. Hello, I had to reinstall MAC OS after it crushed, unfortunately I was unable to export anything from Evernote. I was able to backup my old Library though. So here is what I have: - library/application support/accounts/evernote directory - library/coredata/com.evernote.Evernote/bunch of numbers and letters/ENNote/_records I have many other folders so maybe I am missing something. Now how can I recover the local notebooks from the Library backup? There should be a way I guess. Thanks, Bjorn
  15. Details are as follows: Mac OS X version 10.9.5 current or upgraded version of Evernote: 10.6.0 (451119 Direct) I got a window pop-up that asks me if I want to update to the latest version of Evernote. I clicked Yes and it started updating. After an update, I find all my sync'd to cloud Notebooks BUT could not find all my local notebooks (not sync'd to cloud). A quick search in Finder tells me that all my local notebook contents are in: ~/<user>/Library/Caches/Metadata/com.evernote.Evernote. Title of notebook files are p<numeric number>.evernote. Example: p156.evernote. I opened the .evernote file in TextEdit and I can see all my notes there in xml format. I want it shown in my Evernote app and in the right format as before. How do I point my Evernote app to find my local notebooks?
  16. I did upgrade the other day to version 6 and the upgrade managed to lose notebooks. On further examination, it was the off-live note books which were not carried over to the new version. Luckily I kept the old version so I transferred the offline notes to a synched notebook and then upgraded. Seems to have worked ok. (I could have exported the notebooks and re-imported them after upgrade.) Couple of points... 1. Why does Evernote checksum the contents prior to upgrade and then rechek the checksum afterwards? This would at least alert us to the fact that the new version was 'different' in content. 2. Even better would be a notbook by notebook comparison to highlught notes not transferred. Shouldn't have to do this but it seems Evernote has not been successful at performing faultless upgrades. 3. Without this type of checking how do I know whether the content I had before the upgrade is the same as afterwards?? 3. Off subject but the MAC version is the most boring UI I have ever had the misfortune to look at. I use Evernote extensively and need to have some faith in the product. Currently, I don't.
  17. Hi! I am a kindergarten teacher who is exploring different ways that I can use Evernote to organize my notes and observations of my students. I know that on my PC I can create local notebooks that will not sync with other devices so my students cannot see them, but I cannot figure out how to do this on my iPad. Is it possible? Thanks!
  18. got a new macbook. downloaded a new evernote client to my new macbook. logged into evernote. realized that I cannot access all my notes that were stored on my old laptop in the local notebook that was stored on that old machine. I guess my questions are: where should I be looking for that Local Notebook on my old machine? what is the process for getting the Local Notebook from the old client to the new client. I assume that I just need to put a file into a folder on the new machine to be able to access the Notebook from the new client??????
  19. In my office we have both Windows computers and Macs. They are all connected to a Windows server. We are exploring moving to Evernote for Business and using it as a paperless office solution. Some of our documents contain sensitive information that we want to store locally. Can we configure Evernote for Business to work with local notebooks that are accessible to all employees, including those using Macs, while they are in the office?
  20. I currently have Evernote installed on a Windows XP SP3 machine, including several local notebooks. I now am ready to abandon windows and move to my MacBook Pro. I already have all the synchronized notebooks on my MacBook Pro, but I'd like to figure out how to move my local notebooks over. Is there a way to back up the entire structure on my Windows PC and then import that backup on the Mac?
