Hey Everyone! A while back I was an avid Evernote user. Over 5 years I accrued tens of thousands of notes and a very robust structure. I kept my life in that app.
One day some network thing happened and I wasn’t able to load my evernote. I called support and their recommendation was to load from a backup. Their argument was since the program wouldn’t open I could uninstall EN, delete my local database of notes and then reinstall. When I did this it fixed the problem of Evernote opening, but then my notes where gone.
Fortunately I was able to do some recovery they had but then I was charged for the amount of space that I had to reupload. By this point I was through with Evernote. I deleted my account and vowed to never return to it.
We know what happens next.
Doing so many different things in my life I need a way to organize and collect it all. My notebook is good but there are things I need to record for the long term and my analog system is short/mid term. I’ve been wrestling with the idea of going back to Evernote (I use Bear currently, but my work machine is a PC, so that option is the best.) Every time I try to sign in and download the app, I get hit with a wave of anxiety and immediately close the browser.
Has anyone ever had this happen to them and what did they do. I’m not sure what solution I’m expecting. I honestly just wish for Bear to come out with a web/PC client or get a new job that doesn’t require a PC. But in the meantime my productivity is suffering due to this anxiety.
