mac HELP: Evernote won't sync

30 posts in this topic

I just downloaded Evernote on my macpro as well as on Ipad. I am able to sync Evernote from Ipad but the mac computer is not able to connect to web. I'll appreciate if can help. Thanks.

I get this error message: 'Evernote is unable to connect with the Evernote Service. This may be due to a network problem or service maintenance. Please try again later. If enabled, automatic synchronization will resume once the Service becomes available'. Please explain how to enable the synchronization.

Same here

  • Mac OSX 10.7.4
  • Evernote 3.1.1

Haven't been able to synchronize for 2 days now.

I've had a problematic internet connection for the last couple days, and it has come and gone repeatedly. (I think construction on the building next door may be to blame, but I don't know.) Each time I've been able to reconnect to the internet after an outage, Evernote has taken some time to acknowledge my connection and sync again. This has happened to me in the past, and has sometimes meant a few hours, most or all of which time I had a connection, that I haven't been able to sync.

I'm not sure if what I describe is a bug, but it's a relatively minor inconvenience, and I can't be 100 percent sure the problem is something on Evernote's end. What you two are describing sounds different, and far more substantial. I suggest you file support tickets. Over two days with an internet connection, if Evernote isn't syncing but you can do everything else you do online, it seems the problem is almost certainly something with Evernote.

You can always run a test at SpeedTest.net to determine your Internet speed.

24Mbps Down/16Mbps Up

Still fails to Synchronize. I'll start a support ticket.

I get the same error with 3.1.0. The Activity Log has the following

Hi I also get the message:

Evernote is unable to connect with the Evernote Service. This may be due to a network problem or service maintenance. Please try again later. If enabled, automatic synchronization will resume once the Service becomes available.

However it does occasionally sync, but then this message comes up every time. Also I have two Conflicting Changes Notebooks now.

Has anyone put in a ticket?

Cheers,

Walter

I figured it out.

I looked in the Activity log (Help > Activity Log ...) and saw it mentioned one note as an exception thus:

2012-05-14 21:13:53 sync [ENSyncEngine] INFO: Syncing note: c5d3bbd5-7a0e-4032-b327-e1571557493b 'mirroring - article'

2012-05-14 21:13:53 sync [ENSyncEngine] ERROR: exception updating note 'mirroring' [guid: c5d3bbd5-7a0e-4032-b327-e1571557493b] on server

2012-05-14 21:13:53 sync [ENSyncEngine] ERROR: Sync exception: EDAMUserException(errorCode:5,parameter:"Data.body")

I loaded that note again - opened the items that were saved in it, re saved them and closed them and the sync worked after that.

I think I'd shut Evernote down while those files were open.

Completely removed evernote and Application Data (plist files, etc) re-installed... That seemed to have fixed it..

Hi, I'm seeing this issue as well. Not sure what to do.

Have you opened a support ticket and/or followed the following steps?

  1. Back up all Evernote data
  2. Remove Evernote entirely from your computer, including data in /Library/Application Support/Evernote
  3. Re-install

Well, no, I haven't tried this. I'm worried if I delete EV, then delete library/ files, when I open a fresh install, won't it sync up an empty EV account, thus erasing everything? Or will it sync *down* from the server into my Mac client?

Quick update - EV "reverted back" to week ago version of a few keynote and excel files I was working with. Luckily I was able to recover these versions of the files via the file menu of each program, and opening recent versions of the docs.

The issue which caused EV to behave this way is unusual - I tried to close EV the past few days and it would warn me that files were open elsewhere, but I didn't have Keynote/Excel open, and I had definitely saved the most recent versions. If it helps, my workflow was to open the Keynote/Excel directly from the EV note, make changes, hit save, then close. I know it saved because when I closed the note, the "updated" column updated to the current time, indicating the file had changed.

Summary - EV saved a week ago version of files, even though I made changes the past few days. The past few days cooresponding to this I would get a dialogue box from EV warning me that the file was open somewhere else, but I could not locate this.

I realize this is probably something I did, but if I could figure out what caused this, I can be sure to not let this happen.

First, if you have your files backed up elsewhere, if that were to happen somehow, I'm sure support could talk you through how to get your good files uploaded to your account. Second, I don't think your fear is what happens—at least it hasn't happened for me. I've had to wipe clean my computer of Evernote a couple times, and each time my /Library/Application Support/Evernote folder has been empty or hasn't existed, it has synced my data down from the servers. (In case it isn't obvious, make sure to put your backup of Evernote somewhere outside /Library/Application Support/Evernote, maybe even outside Library, to make sure Evernote doesn't find the files when syncing with your computer.)

Add me to the list. EV doesn't work on my iPad or iPod. It does work great on the iPhone and Windows desktop. Constant sync errors on the two devices.

I am having the exact same error as Yuri Schimke: ERROR: Sync exception: moc accessed off main thread

This has been occurring since I first installed Evernote. It has never synced once. I have deleted all its files on this computer and reinstalled it countless times.

However, when viewing "Shared" notebooks, it shows me my current notebooks (which have been created online and through iOS) in a list where I can share them. So some kind of partial sync is occurring.

@henryblyth - the moc error you are seeing was a bug that was introduced in to 3.1.0. We did resolve this in our latest beta candidate that you can download at http://evernote.s3.amazonaws.com/mac/prerelease/Evernote_251394.zip

To install the beta client, please quit Evernote, drag icon to trash then install the latest beta. I can confirm that this has resolved the issue you are running into. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks Phil, works now. I guess this means I'm no longer on the Evernote App Store release schedule. Does this Evernote beta inform me of updates and full releases?

Cheers,

Henry

I've followed these instructions and still am unable to sync. I get the same unable to sync error message. Run OS X 10.7.4

Any guidance???

I have tried to use Evernote web clipper on my new iPad (which is not yet synced with a Mac desktop that has a running Evernote account) but i have not been able to sync or download the web clipper on either of my www apps. (safari and google chrome) please help, I have tried wiping my Evernote account and then reinstalling. Does it have something to do with the fact that I haven't synced my iPad yet?
