How to find and recover deleted notes
Anytime a note is deleted, it is automatically moved to a notebook in your account called the ‘Trash’ notebook. Deleted notes remain in the ‘Trash’ notebook until they are manually discarded, and can easily be restored at any time. If you think you’ve accidentally deleted a note, first check if it’s in the ‘Trash’ notebook.
Find deleted notes in your 'Trash' notebook

- Click the ‘Trash’ notebook to look for your missing notes. Notes in the trash do not appear in search results.
Recover deleted notes
- Desktop computers (Mac and Windows Desktop): Right-click on a note and click Restore (or select multiple notes and click Restore Selected Notes to move notes out of the ‘Trash’ notebook and return them back to the notebook it was saved to before it was deleted. If that notebook no longer exists, the note is placed in your default notebook.
