After trying re-installs etc I finally found out that it was content in my notes which caused trouble. In my case removing">>>",  "<<<", and "***" helped and now all syncs as it should

Adding "___" to the list of characters that will cause sync issues.  When I removed these, my syncing issue was resolved for those notes.

Had this problem but got it solved.. heard back from Evernote support and this is what helped:


Thank you for contacting Evernote Support. My name is Linda and I'll be happy to assist you today. I believe the issue you're experiencing may be related to some recent security settings changes we've made on our servers. Please note that you must be running at least Windows XP SP3 (or newer) and have Internet Explorer 8 (or newer) installed. Then, to ensure you have the most up-to-date settings, please do the following:

  1. Quit Evernote
  2. Go to your Start menu, then go to Control Panel
  3. Then go to Internet Options > Advanced
  4. Scroll all the way down and check: Use TLS 1.0, Use TLS 1.1, Use TLS 1.2 (if present), and un-check: SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0
  5. See here for a screenshot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jfvj9b47g7dqef1/Win-Internet-Options.gif?dl=0
  6. Reopen Evernote

This is my issue. I'm using this at work. It was working fine yesterday, but for some reason today it isn't and restarting, quitting reopening, changing internet options doesn't work, but it works perfectly on my iPhone which is on the exact same network.
