Backup notes without cloud services and without Root
With multiple Android devices I need to backup and also move notes from device to device and from device to a local NAS.
- There are many reasons to NOT use cloud services for such tasks, as they are inherently insecure. The cloud is a NO-GO for any serious user.
- Rooting my devices is also a NO-GO too.
- The ADB backup is again a NO-GO as it doesn't allow for selective backup and/or restore.
Please simply add the ability to save and load notes from SD card, be it internal or external. This also avoids the problem of notes eating up massively into the limited device storage.
Papyrus 2.0 is rolling out with the ability to create and restore backups locally to your device or SD card. Just open the Papyrus settings and choose “Backup and restore” then “Local backup”.
And where are Papyrus 2.0 ?
On google play only v220.127.116.11 with cloud backup/restore only (Dropbox or Box)...
Wow! It took Stead*fast* LLC only ... wait ... one and a half year to implement this feature? Well, I've moved since then to Microsoft OneNote 2013 on a Surface Pro 3. It provides all the feature including local storage and backing up my notes easily. Don't need cloud, thanks. Don't need lame developers, also.
Hi try using "Cloudbacko pro" I am basically using this software from long time and really satisfied using this software. If you want ia m leavinga link below just check:http://www.cloudbacko.com/

This would be extremely useful. Quill supports this and it makes it trivial to transfer some or all notes from one device to another.
I have huge backup files that won't upload to the cloud. I would not mind to have a paid service to back my notes to the SD card. Sounds reasonable to me.
Yes, please! I don't use Cloud services because I don't like the lack of access and content control. I prefer to have all my data on my own backup devices where I can get to it any time I want. BTW I have been an IT professional for over 30 years. Anyone who really thinks cloud data is private and secure doesn't know programmers the way I do.
This is not only an issue relating to backup, but also to working collaboratively. Being able to send a single note to a colleague for editing, without sending him your whole database makes a lot of sense, and would be very useful.
Are you guys serious!?!? You know samsung note tablets are horrible with so cards right..I have a 10.1 2014 ed with the hottest 32gb chip you can buy and I still trust the cloud more. The cloud is way safer. And quit winning about data.. up grade your package or get an unlimited plan. I have Verizon and have one, it is possible.
I was happily using Papryus instead of s-note for all my various note taking needs, until I realised the most basic function intrinsic to a content generating software, saving content, was precluded. I, like others, do not consider saving to remote servers as a serious option; therefore I cannot seriously consider using it. I have to move back to S-note despite its UI shortcomings.

Totally agree here's why:
- cloud can be slow especially with wireless carriers
- companies can drop free storage and hold the data hostage unless you pay.
- while I dont agree that cloud is totally insecure it definitely has higher risk of security exploits than local, storage.
- monthly limitations from carriers could prevent a user from retrieving notes when he/she needs it most.
- servers crash, require maintenance in which case your data could be unaccessible during these down times if your data happens to be on that server.
- I havent seen one yet that has some sort of warranty on data loss and server uptimes which leaves them free of any liability.
Really its unbelievable that people think these cloud services are great ideas as storage they completely take the control out of the consumers hands and put the power/control into the company running the servers.
Now I dont know about you guys but I dont think these tech companies can be trusted. Google has virtually no morals when it comes to rights of users, Microsoft freely gave up encryption signatures to NSA as well as data from millions of users without a fight and the same with Yahoo!
Getting a bit off topic but yeah the whole trying to "force" people to use cloud by only giving cloud as a backup option is poor.
