Export Evernote to Google Drive for Data Backup

Everything in Evernote is stored as a note. A note could be a piece of formatted text, a full webpage or webpage excerpt, a photograph, a voice memo, or a handwritten “ink” note. There is barely nothing against Evernote. But though a happy Evernote user as you, knowing how to export data is important. At the very least, you should have an Evernote backup under your control.

And Google Drive, a cloud platform for creating, sharing and downloading documents online and offline, is a good destination to save the backup. Next, we’ll show you how to export Evernote to Google Drive with simple steps.

Export Evernote Attachment

You can either export all attachments for all notes, or do it on a notebook-by-notebook basis if you want to keep your structure.

1. Highlight the Notes, click the Save Attachments button on the right side.

2. Choose a folder on computer or hard drive to save the files to.

3. Upload these files to Google Drive.

Export All Notes or A Specific Note\Notebook

When you export all notes or a specific note\notebook, you have two options for exporting: HTML or Evernote XML Format (.enml).

1. Export as HTML

Evernote will create an HTML file (basically a web page you can view on your computer) for each note. If the note has attachments, there is a “.resources” folder where the attachments live.


2. Export as Evernote XML

If you choose Evernote XML, you could get one big XML file. However, if you don’t understand XML, this method does not help you much, although it does retain all your notes, tags, and data for import into Evernote or other applications.

When you simply back up Evernote to Google Drive or move Evernote data to other systems, this method can help you back up related data. Here’s an example of what the file looks like if we open it up:

In a word, when you export from Evernote to Google Drive with Evernote built-in feature, you can copy the attachment in its native format and then upload to Google Drive, or you can export as HTML files or an “.enml” backup file. But this is not good enough.
