How to Backup Your Folders
Use export & import to backup your data.

One of the benefits of Perinote is that it stores all your folders directly on your device. That means it will work deep in a cave or out on a remote site in the moutains. What it also means is that, since your data is on your device, you need to periodically take some simple steps to back up your data in case your phone gets lost or stops working.

In the next few paragraphs we'll explain how to do a backup. Actually there are many possible variations on how to do this; I'll explain the most typical.

Create a backup file.

This is really easy. Just tap the menu icon in the upper-right of the screen and then Export. You will see a popup asking you to confirm; tap "OK".

Copy the backup file to your laptop.

I'm assuming your phone or device doesn't directly have a way to automatically backup files created by various applications. If it does, and you're sure that Perinote files will be included in the backup, you are done!

Continuing with the assumption, connect your device to your laptop. This will probably be with the USB cable provided when you purchased your device. On Windows, you should see a window for your device. Here's mine:

Next, drill down a level to see the folders on your device. Here's what it looks like for me:

And, once more, drill down and open the Perinote folder on your device.

In this example, there's only one file in Perinote folder. Each backup creates a new file so, after some time, there could be multiple files. The files are named with the date and time when you made the backup. In this case "export.2015-08-01.08-00.xml" refers to a backup made on 1 August 2015, 8:00am.

Choose the most recent one and drag and drop it to your laptop. Be sure to drag it to a folder that gets backed up with other files on your computer.

That's all.

Optionally, after you're sure your laptop (or other kind of computer) had finished backing up its files, you can delete the backup file from your Android device.
