#1587 Evernote confirms a serious bug caused data loss for some Mac users
A number of Evernote users are now being alerted via email message of a serious bug that may cause data loss in certain versions of the company’s Mac application. Not all Evernote Mac users were affected by this bug, however, but those who received the email will need to update their Mac app immediately in order to protect themselves from experiencing the issue.

According to the email sent to users, the bug can cause images and other attachments to be deleted under specific conditions, when using Evernote for Mac. The company claims only “a small number of people” have been impacted by the glitch, which occurs in the version of the Mac software released in September, and less frequently, in the versions released since this June.
