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

Evernote is a great tool for saving you important information. When you store notes, videos, photos or 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 provide more security by backing up your Evernote notebooks.

Not as safe

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 takes place? 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

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 accomplish this - some, as How-To Geek explains, are quite complicated - but there is one simple option: You can export your Evernote notebooks.

The export option

To do this, right-click on any notebook saved in Evernote. Then select the “Export Notes” option. Then you're able to export the notebook in any of several formats. If you should happen to lose the notebook or the information it contains, you can simply choose to import the previously exported notebook. This will bring in a new version of the notebook that can act as a wholesale replacement for the notebook that you previously lost.
