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

You may 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?

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

Protection

You can add an extra layer of security to your Evernote notebooks – and the data they contain – by backing them up. There are various 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.

Exporting

To do this, first right-click on any notebook and pick the “Export Notes� option. On top of that, you can export your notes in a variety of formats, including Evernote’s native one. Now, if you lose the notebook or the data it holds, you can simply select the “import� option to bring back the exported notebook as a wholesale replacement for the notebook you lost.
