About the sync feature

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. 


Sync can't be used to save notes but you can back up your Nebo library by using the Backup feature: Back up your notes. You can also choose to export entire notebooks or to only export pages.


*Not available in the Nebo free version for iOS.
