Offline Notebooks Data

Recommended Posts

I know when I make a notebook offline and sync, it downloads my data. If I then remove it from offline, is that data removed? I'm thinking more in terms of storage than security.

I  experimented on my iPad with my 5gb database.  IOS is a difficult example because the space doesn't register as used by Evernote.

Removing the offline designation did not release the space

Rebooting the device did not release the space

Deleting the Evernote app finally released the space

I have to explain "did not release the space".  I can only look at the  reported space in Settings.  I can't be sure if the space was really assigned or free.

I should have tried deleting the Evernote cache.  I'll update this post if it impacts the numbers

Thanks, should have tried that before posting. Just did and got same results. Clearing cache didn't help. Total local data right now is 1.32Gb so not a problem, but could become one

Just went through two more cycles of doing the same thing with inconsistent results, so..... IDK
