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

  1. Scroll to the bottom of your notebooks list. The ‘Trash’ notebook is the last notebook in the list.
  2. Click the ‘Trash’ notebook to look for your missing notes. Notes in the trash do not appear in search results.
