windows Location of Evernote Note Attachments

Recommended Posts

Almost everyone of my notes has a pdf attachment and I noticed the other day that they all seem to be located in "My Pictures" folder on my computer. The location of the local files in the Options Menu in the Windows Evernote Program is C:\Users\my username\AppData\Local\Evernote\Evernote and I can see those pdf attachments there. Any idea why they are being duplicated into My Pictures?

Are the PDFs scans of documents you have made? Is it possible that your scanner is sending them to My Pictures?

I use the Fujitsu ScanSnap and did see that they were sending them to My Pictures so that is what is happening. I guess I can delete them from My Pictures because once they are in Evernote there is not need to access them in My Pictures anymore...

That should be correct. Evernote stores note attachments in its database, and only brings them out in order to let a 3rd-party application (e.g. MS Word, Paint.Net, etc.) operate on them. I don't know how the ScanSnap / Evernote hookup occurs, is it via an import folder (Tools / Import Folders...)? In any case, you might want to just temporarily move the scans from My Pictures to a different location until you can verify that it's save to actually delete them.
