How to Create Automatic Evernote Backups to Google Drive

  • MORE

While Evernote is a rock-solid platform that shouldn’t give you any issues, some users have reported losing notes from time-to-time. This is probably due to user error, but if you’d like that extra sense of security when adding important notes, you can automatically back up your Evernote notebooks to Google Drive.

Back up Evernote to Google Drive

Each note you save will be added into Google Drive as a new text file. If something happens, you’ve got a redundancy in place, and you’ll never again lose an important note.
