Why Backup Evernote to Google Drive?
Evernote is a cross-platform, freemium app designed for note taking, organizing, and archiving. It allows you to create a note which can be a piece of formatted text, a full webpage, a photograph, a voice memo, or a handwritten note. But in terms of cost effectiveness, you may have to pay for Evernote or to use the limited functions in free version.
Some of you may think Evernote and Google Drive are two totally different products that one is for creating or storing notes and the other is for storing or sharing all kinds of files. Actually, you could look through the detailed comparison between Evernote and Google Drive below to clearly find out the difference between these two cloud services.

What’s more, some users have reported losing notes from time-to-time. If you want your important notes to be protected in a better way, you’d better move Evernote backup to Google Drive, because Google Drive provides both enough free storage and great security protection to over 1 billion users.
