Want to be really safe? Here’s how to back up your Evernote notebook

You might think that you’ll never need to back up files, images or videos that you save in an Evernote notebook. Considering that, not only will your files be stored on your own computer or device, they’ll also be stored on Evernote’s own servers.

Is it really necessary?

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 happens? 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.

Protection

You can add an extra layer of security to your Evernote notebooks – and the data they contain – by backing them up. There are a few ways to do this – some, as How-To Geek explains, are quite complicated – however, there is one easy option: You can export your Evernote notebooks.

The export option

One of the easiest ways to do this is to export your notebooks. You can do this 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.
