    There are two folders in my notes app I no longer need so I am trying to delete. I have removed all notes from the folders. When I delete them the are back the next time I open notes. This happens across my iPhone, iPad, and iMac, no mater which I delete the folder on. Anyone else have this issue or know a solution?

    Happening here as well. Imported from Evernote and now the "Imported Notes" folder that is automatically created can't be removed. I have tried removing the supporting containers and preference with no luck.

    Any answers on this question so far? I'm still having issues with deleting a folder in Notes and then it just popping right back up after about 60 seconds. Can't seem to get rid of them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Bump! Same problem here. Delete a folder and it returns around 30 seconds later. :(

    That seems to have worked. I don't know how I didn't think of that, probably because I forget that notes can be accessed online.

    Thank you!

    Deleting from icloud.com doesn't work for me.
    As soon as I get back to opening Mac OS Calendar app they get "re-created".
    Notes, Reminders and Calendar app/iCloud services are so buggy for me...
    From locations in calendar disappearing, or timezones switching for huge chunks of appointments (I have timezone support) or things I mark as complete reappearing immediately...

    I wish Apple would focus a bit on these type of issues and not on releasing major new features every year with these core features so buggy :(

    FYI to anyone affected, I reported this to Apple and was closed as duplicate, so hopefully it is something they will fix soon.
