Evernote Confirms A Severe Bug Caused Data Loss For Mac Users
Everyone knows very well that Evernote is an essential work tool and, therefore it is present in almost all platforms. But, the people out there that use Evernote on their Mac, may have remarked that some of their data have gone missing recently.
A serious flaw in the version for MacOS was discovered and Evernote is asking all users to urgently update the application.
This failure, now discovered, can lead to attachments that Evernote notes have been lost and disappear. There is no direct way to create this error, but Evernote reported that in some cases the leafing grades of quick and consecutive may take this from happening.
The recommendation is being sent to users through email, asking them to upgrade to the latest version as soon as possible, thus ensuring that this problem does not happen and your data is not lost.
For now, Evernote is able to recover most of the attachments that are synchronized with its servers, which does not guarantee that everyone can be brought back, including those that have not yet synchronized.
Here is what that email states which was sent by Evernote:-
“We have identified a bug in some versions of Evernote for Mac that can cause images and other attachments to be deleted from a note under specific conditions. We believe you are one of a small number of people impacted by this bug.
The bug can occur in the version of Evernote for Mac released in September, and less frequently in versions released since June. In these versions, certain sequences of events, such as skimming quickly through a large number of notes, can cause an image or other attachments to be deleted from a note without warning. Text in notes is not affected.”
Tests conducted by Evernote to outwit and correct this problem, it was revealed that not all the versions that are being affected. In particular, the version released in September has this problem and also update that was released in June.
However, to compensate users who were unable to retrieve the attachments housed on the Evernote servers, the company is offering a year of premium version of its service. Moreover, you can perform update directly from the App Store of Apple or downloads page of Evernote.
