Don’t think you need to back up your Evernote notebooks? Think again

Evernote is a great tool for saving important information. Anytime 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 provides this warning: This isn’t really enough data security. Fortunately, How-To Geek also tells you how to have more security by backing up your Evernote notebooks.

Not as safe

This means that 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.

Protecting yourself

How-To Geek goes through several different ways you can back-up your Evernote notebooks. Some are quite complicated. One of the simplest ways is to take advantage 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.” Now you can 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.
