With Nebo, sync simply enables you to have your notes uploaded on all the devices on which you’ve set up sync.*
This means that if you’re writing on your iPad 2019, you can sync your notebook and find it back on your Samsung Chromebook Pro for instance. It’s a transfer of data through your cloud account, not a backup solution. We give you more information on backup further down in the article.
The cloud services you can use with Nebo Pro:
- Google Drive (iOS, Android, Windows)
- Dropbox (iOS, Android, Windows)
- iCloud (iOS)
Now, why sync doesn't work as a backup?
Because when you delete a page, a notebook, or a collection in Nebo, your item is also immediately deleted in the cloud.
The particularity of Dropbox:
Only Dropbox lets you see your .nebo files in the cloud and restore a notebook that has been deleted. To access this feature, follow the Dropbox instructions on how to recover deleted files.
With Dropbox, you can also restore a previous version of a notebook.
As for Google Drive and iCloud, they work without leaving a trace in the cloud interface: you can’t access or manage your .nebo files from there.
*Not available in the Nebo free version for iOS.
