Be smart. Back up your Evernote notebooks

June 30, 2013
Evernote is a great tool for saving important information. Whenever you store notes, videos, photos and other documents in an Evernote notebook, not only is the info saved on your computer, tablet or smart phone, it’s also saved in Evernote’s servers. However, the tech site How-To Geek offers this warning: This isn’t really enough data security. Fortunately, How-To Geek also lets you know how you can provide more security by backing up your Evernote notebooks.


Not as safe

This means someone or something could wipe out both the data you’ve stored on your computer or other device and the version of the same data that you’ve stored on Evernote’s servers. And if that takes place? That data is gone. Fortunately, the How-To Geek Web site explains how users can back-up Evernote notebooks to give the utmost protection to their files, photos, reports and videos.


Top protection

How-To Geek runs through several different ways you can back-up your Evernote notebooks. Some are quite complicated. But one of the simplest ways is to make use of Evernote’s “export” option.



One of the simplest ways to do this is to export your notebooks. This can be accomplished by right-clicking on any notebook and selecting “Export Notes.” You can now export your notebook in a wide variety of formats. Then, if you lose the data in a notebook, you can import the exported notebook as what How-To Geek calls a wholesale replacement for the missing notebook.
