windows (Archived) Moving Evernote Program to External Hard Drive

Recommended Posts

I have been using EN since it first came out.

 

I am almost out of space on my 300 GB internal drive.

 

EN takes up a lot of room.

 

I want to move the entire program, db and all to my external drive.

 

It seems to me that the easiest thing to do would to be to uninstall the program from my internal hard drive and reinstall in on the external.

 

If I do that:

 

1) Does the install program give me a choice of where to install the program?

2) Will the program actually run from the external drive?

 

I am assuming no data will be lost because it is stored by Evernote. Is that correct?

 

Any advice would be appreciated.

Tools/options/change - moves your EN database.  This does not move the application.  But honestly, the app takes up very little space.  Looks like just under 150 MBs on my computer.  I'd also argue the database takes up little space.  My account that has 62,000 notes (give or take) is just under 40 gigs.  That goes back about five years & includes some pretty large notes.  So if your 300 GB is being rapidly chewed up, I think you need to look at other applications, temp files, etc.  (Or a combination thereof.)
