How to resolve "Internal Database Error" in Evernote for Mac

In rare instances, your Evernote database may become corrupt, resulting in an "Internal Database Error" and will need to be rebuilt using data already synced to Evernote's servers. Follow these steps to accomplish this:

Warning: If you have any unsynced notes or local notebooks in Evernote, this content will be irrecoverably lost when your database is rebuilt using the data from Evernote's servers. You should export these notes and notebooks first, if possible.

  1. Export your unsynced notes or local notebooks
  2. Quit Evernote by selecting Evernote > Quit Evernote from the menu bar
  3. Open the Finder and hit Command + Shift + G to open the 'Go to Folder' dialog box, then type "~/Library/"
  4. Double-click the Application Support folder and locate the 'com.evernote.Evernote' folder
  5. Drag the 'com.evernote.Evernote' folder to your desktop
  6. Launch Evernote and log in to your account

At this point, Evernote will download all of your synced notes from Evernote's servers. Depending on the amount of data in your account, this could take a bit of time to complete.
