hi eveyone -

i recently found evernote....... and just love it!

it seems i am writing more in evernote now than word and saving in evernote rather than in my documents folder.

just wondering how safe this is? what are folks here doing? what if evernote......... goes down.. or the internet crashes for that matter... should i be saving everything on my hard drive or a mini drive as well?

thanks much,
nicole

    Evernote is very much advisable to use especially for us who loved to jot down notes all the time. But regarding your question i don't think it will be saved to your hard drive. But definitely you would still be able to get all your last saved notes once you log back in.

    I just found it too and also love it. No more notes in 100s of text files. Now, they are all in one and easy place.

    As to the safety, I'm not keeping any notes in it that others dont need to see and I backup the user folder.

    The Evernote Windows client actually DOES save everything locally. So even if you don't have Internet access you can access all your notes locally. If you edit one, it will just not be updated on the Evernote servers until you have Internet access.

    Now the Andorid client does NOT save locally. It downloads notes as you view them. This is designed that way so it does not eat up your phone or tablets storage space.

    Now as far as uploading everything. First of course pick a strong password. You also have the option to encrypt individual notes with a second password for added safety.

    Evernote is a fantastic product and it's well worth getting the paid version for $5 a month.

      thanks rob...

      i am doing the paid version actually.
      so you think it is okay to have files, notes and things there and not worry about not having them saved in documents on my computer?

        You should be fine. I actually use Evernote on multiple computers. So each computer has a full copy of all my files in Evernote.

        Plus... All the years I have used Evernote, they have never lost a single file or note of mine. I'm sure they have very good redundancy and backups of the main Evernote storage computers.

        I would still include the Evernote database in my local backups for extra safety. You can never make to many backups.

      OneNote is another excellent notetaking product. I think its interface is more intuitive than Evernotes.
