Not sure how many of you out there use Evernote, if you don't you really should look into it. Personally I love it, I use it every day for a whole variety of reasons, system logbooks, I scan all my letters into it, digital archive of kids pictures, code I write, documentation. The list is endless.
I have introduced this to a couple of people at work recently who have started to use it to track, store the coursework for an Open University course they are doing.
They asked a couple of questions about where was the database stored on the PC and how big is it. I showed him how to find this out, and then he went and worked out the folder size etc. I thought this could be simpler so I wrote the following utility.
The script is very simple indeed, I wrote it using AutoIT. It basically looks in your registry to get the path of your database and then displays this along with the database size.

Local $dbsize = DirGetSize($evernote) ; Get the size of the folder
; Display a message box with the location of the database and also the size in MB
MsgBox(0,"Evernote Details - /", "Your evernote database is here : " & $evernote & @LF & "The total Size is : " & Round($dbsize / 1024 / 1024) & " (MB)")
You can download the compiled exe yourself here. You could (if you are a premium subscriber) save the exe into evernote and run it directly from there. I hope you find this useful.
