Application Support - 4.5 Gigs?

Recommended Posts

My Evernote "Application Support" folder is taking up 4.5 gigs on my puny 2011 MacBook Air. Is there a way to safely reduce this huge footprint? Why is the app such a juggernaut when all the data is stored online?

On Macs, a full copy of your data is maintained on your computer

You could try a rebuild to see if the footprint is cleaned up

  • Remove Evernote (app, data, ...), reinstall, and the database will be rebuilt from the servers
    The app AppCleaner is recommended for this
    Warning: The rebuild does not include Local Notebooks or unsyncd notes

>>Is there a way to safely reduce this huge footprint?

You could use two accounts.  

  1. Full data accessed via the web platform
  2. Select data via the Mac app
