Import Folders files duplicated

Recommended Posts

I have set up an import folder so that I can save to it and have the file imported to Evernote "My Notebook"

However whenever I do this I end up with two copies imported into Evernote, I have checked to see if I have two import folders set for the same monitored folder but nope.

 

Why? What am I doing wrong. I have checked to see if I have two import folders set for the same monitored folder but nope.

Is this on Windows? What are your import folders settings (Tools / Import Folders..)? Is the Source field for your import folder set to "Delete" or "Keep".

So the only thing that should cause this to happen is someone/something updating the file that remains in the import folder (because you've marked that folder as "Keep').At least, it seems to be working fine in a 'Keep' import folder in the latest version (6.18.4.8489 (308489) Public (CE Build ce-62.3.7750)), with no duplicated notes.

Mmmm.

 

If I set it to delete the file once imported, I get one copy in Evernote.

If I set it to Keep then I get two copies of each doc in Evernote.

Testing but I reckon it could be Google Backup and Sync that is busy backing up and syncing anything put into the folder.

Seems weird that a backup application would cause duplicate copies, or would somehow update an existing copy. Is there some way to exclude that particular folder from Google Backup and Sync?
