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
