Evernote is complaining about a file having invalid characters in the file name. I can't find the file to delete it or rename it so it just keeps complaining about it.

Thanks for the help,

At a guess, there is a [Tab] character in the filename, which Evernote abhors.

Search for intitle:A1429)
This should limit the number of returns.  You should then be able to rename the title without the tab character present.

If I could find the offending file I could fix it but I am not sure if it was mailed into evernote or coming from another app.

I can't find the file but can I delete it from the evernote side/cache.

As has been suggested earlier, search for A1429, since that is distinctive.

Not sure what fixed he problem. I was never able to find the file. I reinstalled Evernote and cleaned out the cache and it now seems to work.
