Evernote is a great tool for saving important info. Whenever you store notes, videos, photos or other documents in an Evernote notebook, not only is the information 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 to provide more security by backing up your Evernote notebooks.

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 provide the utmost protection to their files, photos, reports and videos.

Protecting yourself

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 take full advantage of Evernote’s “export” option.

The export option

To do this, first right-click on any notebook and choose the “Export Notes” option. Best of all, 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.
