I wonder if there is an option (inside of Evernote or outside of it, manually with the help of 3rd party tools) to locate the biggest notes inside of Evernote? I want to remove those or put them into another system. Basically a "order after note(file) size" option is what I need.

My EN database is now over 250 MB big due to my increased usage so I need to take some action.

Thanks for your help in advance.


Within Evernote, if you go to all Notes and you're in list view you should have the header size. If not, right click and select it to be visible. You can then sort by size of note.

  • Evernote also has a drop-down (visible in your screenshot!) called [sort] "Notes by..." (size, in this case), which does the same even when you not have the "list" view activated, but the "snippet" or the "thumbnail" view. – grunwald2.0 May 21 '12 at 10:32

I'm using an evernote clone called nevernote on ubuntu, in my case the database used is H2. It is possible to connect to the database using web interface, and run SQL queries as explained here.

  • I totally don't get how this is relatd to my question or how this is a practical solution for non-SQL-nerds..."Raystafarian" did luckily answer this one. – grunwald2.0 May 21 '12 at 10:33
  • Sry grunwald2.0, this was the only solution I could think of. – bbaja42 May 21 '12 at 12:36
