  1. Working with a specific note in its own window and Evernote main window minimized to dock. When clicking on the dock icon to bring the note back to the front, Evernote main window is also restored, obscuring the note being used. It then has to be re-minimized. This is inconsistent with behavior of other applications on Mac when multiple windows are open.
  2. I am trying to recover a few months of missing log data from last year. Our Evernote data is archived everyday to a server. The archives seem to consist of .exb files, one of which is over 250MB in size. I can't seem to open the .exb files with Evernote. Can anyone help point me in the right direction?
  3. I accidentally pressed select all and wrote something, and then lost 6 months worth of a note. It wouldn't let me undo. How can I revert to the previous version of the note.
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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/
  8. I'm using Evernote 6.1.1 with OS X 10.11.1. I recently did an erase and install on my Macbook, and installed a fresh copy of Evernote, did a sync with the cloud, and have almost all of my data. Except I have one or two local only notebooks I forgot about. I have a Time Machine backup, and was able to find Evernote in the /User/Library/Containers folder. I tried putting that in the /User/Library/Containers folder on the new system, but didn't see the local folders. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  9. 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."
  10. Hello, I have the basic evernote. I changed the mobile device associated with my account and without wanting to remove the mobile device and my laptop (windows). How do I restore the two associated devices to which I am entitled: the evernote on my laptop and my new phone?
  11. I don't know how this happened but I realized that 90% of the note which includes my To Do list is missing. Since it's already synced from my laptop to phone, I want to pull the old copy from Time Machine. I've been reading several documents trying to figure out how to do it and I'm stumped. I don't know if my problem is on the Evernote end or the Time Machine end. To be safe, I exported all notes which have been modified since my last backup into a .enex file. I just can't figure out how to import my last backup. From this: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005557, I can't seem to figure out how to find the .enex backup to do the restore. Thanks for the help.
  12. After I upgraded to Windows 10 I regularly find that my notebook have been rebooted while I slept. I have a seperate desktop for the Evernote client and usually 5-10 windows open with notes. This setup is lost on every reboot, so my feature request is that the Windows client remembers windows open, their size and position and asks if they should be restored when starting next time. Just like Firefox! Thanks :-)
  13. I recently found an old harddrive with an Evernote database and backup files circa September 2006. The Database folder has these 4 files in it: Evernote.enb / Evernote.eni / Evernote.enl / Evernote.enr The Backups folder has 6 backups each with different dates. The backups have an .enex and .xml extension. When I attempt to import any of these backups I get the following error: Could not import notes, error: INVALID_ROOT (Error in line 2, token "EVERNOTE") Please report this problem to Evernote support. I don't have the version that was used to create these notebooks, and I can read the XML files but the code makes the notebooks nearly impossible to read, or extract in that fashion. Lastly, I did find the EN2Export.zip file in another post. In attempting to convert the database, given the time period it's reasonable to assume that the database is from Version 2.x. That didn't work. I can re-run the program to recreate the error as I don't have it handy right now. If it's pertinent my system specs: Windows 10 Pro 64bit / 32GB RAM / Intel Core i7 3.4GHz.
  14. I'm not sure how it happened, but I overwrote a note--and extremely LENGTHY note with a lot of information I wanted to save. Is there a way to restore it to a certain date? This is on my Android phone.
  15. This is my first post here, but I hope it'll be helpful for some people. Earlier today I was writing a bunch of notes on my Nexus 7 (2013) tablet. After a couple of hours I was tabbing between different apps on the tablet, but when I got back to Evernote almost all of my notes were gone. The first sentences I wrote was all that was left. Devastated I searched the forums for help and finally after looking through different threads I found a solution to my problem, which I'll share here. Might not work for all of you,but hopefully someone might be able to get their notes back. First thing I did was trying to sync my files without any luck, so I started my file explorer (in my case ES File Explorer - found in Google Play if you don't have it/another file explorer). 1. In ES File Explorer I opened the folder Android>data>com.evernote>files>unsaved_notes. Here I found 3 different .enml-files. I opened them as text and saw that what I wrote earlier was there, only cluttered with a bunch of html-code (I think it was HTML - don't know for sure). The files were named something similar to temp_XXXXXXXXXXXX.enml 2. I marked all three files and pressed the "Share" button (found under "More" in bottom right corner on my tablet) 3. I Shared all three files to my dropbox and then went to my computer (which runs Windows 7). 4. On my computer I changed the file extensions from .enml to .html (remember to deactivate the "Hide file extensions"-option in folder options to change the file extension - http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/how-to/software/3341794/how-show-or-hide-file-extensions/) 5. When the file names where changed to .html I could open my files in my web browser and there it was - all my notes were saved as I last rememberd them. 6. I just copied all text and opened Evernote om my computer and pasted it there - all I had to do was change font. 7. Finally I just synced my files and found them all on my tablet again. So there you have it - there's possibly some other, easier way to restore your notes, but that's how I got my back!
  16. I'm looking at using Evernote for important business files, etc. If I decide to do this, I need to know that there is a backup happening somewhere in case something happens (such as a crash, Evernote disappears, you know, things you don't want to happen). Can anyone help me be reassured that I won't lose my files should the unexpected happen? thanks!
  17. thankfully this is a hypothetical quesiton if i delete a note from a notebook, then delete it from the trash, then buy evernote premium afterwards, can you recover that note ? thanks
  18. Usually you hear horror stories of people losing data because they didn't backup, but in my case, my horror story is due to a slip of the mouse, and I accidentally selected "Restore Deleted Notes" when right-clicking on the Evernote "Trash", instead of "Empty Trash". Now I am staring in horror, watching Evernote restore hundreds of deleted and redundant notes to my account, because the "Restore Deleted Notes" option does not warn you that it's about to restore the deleted notes and give you an option to abort the operation. I dont suppose there is any way to "undo" a "Restore Deleted Notes" operation, is there? If not, I would like to submit a formal Feature Request to the Evernote Mac development team to implement a modal warning dialog box to this feature, so as to avoid mistakes like this. Either that, or implement a user-definable "Empty Trash after xx days/hours/weeks" option, so the magnitude of making such an error won't be as bad as accidentally restoring notes from an infinitely non-expiring Trash folder.
  19. 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
  20. I am a new Evernote user and thrilled about this excellent app. My only question now is that I've been told that Evernote keeps a local copy of my notes on my computer which I can and should include in my overall back up strategy. My question is: Where do I find the local copy of my Evernote notes? TIA, Ken
  21. Good morning, I restored a computer completely from a time machine backup that is about 3 weeks old. After the restoration, HUNDREDS of my local notes are without content. They include notes that have attachments, notes that are text only, new, old, recently updated, not recently updated. There is no rhyme or reason to which notes are blank and which aren't. They appear in the notes lists along with all of the other notes, and they still have titles (some have thumbnails of a generic pdf, if there was a pdf, but not all that had a pdf do) but when I click to view them or when I open them, they are utterly blank. They don't have the usual "click here to edit"; it's as though that entire section had been cut out. It can't be edited, and it can't be viewed. I've left it run for days, I've tried everything you could imagine (moving the notes, deleting all of the other notes (offline, of course) to see if they would eventually index (and then re-restored the time machine backup again after that), I've searched the library/.../ accounts/... folder that usually contains the attachments have have had no luck. I am terrified that I will not be able to recover these notes. Some of them are extremely important to me. So far I've lost hours trying anything I could imagine and searching forums, but I would be fine losing another dozen hours if it means getting my notes back. I've searched for the missing pdfs using the finder's search in the library in the hopes that would point me to the location of the other missing notes, but nothing. It's like they never existed... except they clearly did, as their titles are still there. I could use any help those of you with experience with this could provide to try to recover these notes. Thank you for any help you can provide,Mary
  22. Hello all, I'm so sorry if this topic has been covered before but in my search for help, I've only come across users who've looked through their trash and restored their notes successfully. I opened Evernote today after a few weeks of inactivity and discovered to my shock that my notes in my default notebook were all gone. I did not delete them at all on my own if you were thinking that! I looked into the trash and there they were and clicked 'restore' on those I wanted back. It was with growing horror that I could not find those restored notes anywhere still (literally no trace of them both on my Mac and the web version) and that my default note book just didn't exist anymore. At my wits' end here, even after contacting Evernote support. I'm a basic (free) user, and I'm pessimistically gloomy that my request is going to be passed over and brushed off...in deference to paid users. Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks in advance for all the help.
  23. Additions to a note were lost. Can they be retrieved?
  24. 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.
