Ugh! I can't bring myself to delete my account. Luckily, I don't have to. I'm just going to stop paying for it. One of these days, I may actually close it. For now, I don't need to make a hasty decision, since Evernote basically can become free cloud storage:
This is the key bit, from the Evernote Help & Learning Center:
Your subscription won't change until your current billing cycle ends. Once your subscription runs out, your subscription will be canceled, and your account will automatically revert to Evernote Free. None of your data will be lost, and you will maintain access to all of your notes and notebooks.
Since I switched to Standard Notes, I had given myself until September, 2021 to transfer Evernote to the new platform. I've completed that task. I still have 4,500+ notes that are more or less random clippings from the web. Sprinkled among the chaff are some fleeting thoughts. By retaining my account, I can browse through my notes, looking for them--like popping in an old VHS of home movies.
