Restore Evernote Windows database

Recommended Posts

Is it enough to restore my data if I only have a backup of the database file?

 

So, for example, I only have the accountname.exb file and nothing else.

Be aware that you're working with a copy of your data;    
the master copy is stored on the Evernote servers

You can restore your backup copy, however the sync process will update it from the servers   
You might want to work offline

Yes, going offline is important here.

I just wanted to ask if it's enough if I only have the database file and not the whole directory.

Maybe I should've asked it in this way: What do I have to back up in order to restore my data (Windows only)? Is the database file enough?

Yes - in Evernote/Windows the .exb file contains all your data
