Tips and FAQ

Evernote - Why is the File Size in GET /files/{id}/metadata Different from the Returned File Size in GET /files/{id}?

The reason why you'll see a different size value in GET /files/{id} is because the value returned is from the binary file data itself. In GET /files/{id}/metadata, the size value you see is from the resource metadata and does not contain the binary file data.

Evernote - Why is my Document Still Accessible by ID Even After Deletion?

Based on the limitation of the Evernote API, you cannot hard delete a document. When you delete a document from your Evernote account using Cloud Elements, the note is moved into your trash folder. Because your trash folder is still a directory, the notes moved to it are still accessible. However, in the Evernote UI, you can completely expunge or undelete the note.
