windows (Archived) Safe to delete original .exb after location change?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've used Tools > Options and set a new Evernote Local Files folder outside my Windows profile.

 

I was expecting that the original .exb in C:\Users\thisismyname\AppData\Local\Evernote\Evernote\Databases would get deleted automatically, but it's still there after restarting Evernote.

 

Is it safe to manually delete it?

 

Thanks

Yes, it is quite safe to delete the entire folder, once you're certain the new database is connected, functioning and syncing.

But as an overly cautious person, I prefer to rename the folder, until I'm certain the app is functioning the way it should.  You can always delete later.

Thank you both.

 

I've renamed the file and the sky hasn't fallen in - I'll delete it in a couple of weeks if nothing terrible happens.
