Evernote using 443 MB of storage (without any offline notes)

Recommended Posts

Any ideas why Evernote would be using 443 MB of storage without any offline storage?

 

That's way more than I want Evernote to be using.

Evernote iOS creates a temporary cache as you view Notes.  If you have viewed any large Notes and/or large attachments, EN could be storing these in cache (to make viewing quicker next time).  Unless you are running out of storage on your iOS device, I wouldn't worry about it.  EN should release this cache if the iOS demands/requests it.

 

But, if you really do want to remove the cache, go to Evernote > Settings > Support > Clear Cache

I cleared the cache but the storage usage did not clear. It's still the same amount. Other ideas?

At a guess:

 

* The cache doesn't include note headers, which Evernote needs to fetch the actual notes when it needs them

* Do you also have offline search enabled? That might chew up a bit of storage as well.

* Do you have any offline notebooks? Those won't be cleared when clearing the cache either.

I have no offline notebooks.

I'll check on offline search, but if it's off by default, I did not turn it on.
