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

Business Technology | April 15, 2014

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 data 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 is not enough data security. Fortunately, How-To Geek also reveals how you can have more security by backing up your Evernote notebooks.

Not as safe

You may be wondering: Do I have to back up my Evernote notebooks? How-To Geek would answer with an emphatic “yes!” Simply because Evernote isn’t a backup system. It’s a synching system. In a worst-case scenario, Evernote’s remote file store could be wiped. Then, the local file store can be wiped, too.

Top protection

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


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.
