    Default Backing up S-Notes???

    I went back to stock after the recent update. I backed up all my pictures but lost my S-Notes. What's a good way to back them up? I was looking at My Backup Pro on Google Play but I'm not sure it backs up S-Notes.
    As always, thanks.

    If you have Dropbox get Dropsync and follow the instructions. I just picked up a Note 10.1 and was looking for a way to sync my S-Notes. Dropsync serves dual functions as a backup and a 2 way sync tool. I just installed it last night, but my initital impressions are positive.
    Current Devices:
    Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - AT&T
    Motorola Moto X - unlocked GSM
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8 - LTE AT&T
    Apple iPad Mini Retina - 32GB LTE

    There's a sync feature built into the app.

    Go into Menu --> Sync --> choose between Google Docs or Evernote

    What about Google Drive? It says Google Docs is now part of Google Drive.

    That's correct. They combined them awhile back. Basically the Docs are stored in Drive.

    But google Docs does not open the note, nor does Evernote.

    So, back to the original question.

    It's a sync/backup, not an editor/viewer. The backup is a safety thing while the sync let's you edit the same note between various Samsung devices.

    I'm not aware of any other way to edit an S-note. You can view it by exporting the note as a .jpg or .pdf.

    If anyone knows of another editor, please chime in.

    I was hoping that we would be able to at least read them. If it just backs them up how do you retrieve then on the note?

    I'm not sure why you continue to go against (or ignore) with what I've already stated. It'll do what you're asking for. This is, so far, how Samsung's designed it to work.

    Backup = sync

    View = export as jpg or pdf

    If there's a specific part that you don't understand, please ask for clarification.

    Thanks for the explanation. I guess I'm asking how to get the notes back on to the note from the backup

    Not sure if it reverse syncs automatically to a new device, but you could always download them & put them in the S-Note folder manually. At least they're not lost.

    Make a test note sync it with Google docs delete the note and resync it will be restored.

    Yup, just tried it. The only way I could actually delete without it coming back in the next sync is to delete of both the phone & Drive separately before syncing again.

    So TucsonChuck, forget about the manual part in my last post.
