User error is the leading cause of data loss- and Evernote cannot help you in that case. But you can help yourself- you just need to backup Evernote.
In 1990, noted organizational theorist and sociologist Charles B. Perrow noted in his book “Normal Accidents: Living with High-Risk Technologies” that operators and the personnel handling data are the blamed for disasters and data loss 60-80% of the time. Other studies have shown that of all the users that accidentally deleted or modified their data, 70% don’t even remember when. In most cases, by the time the data loss is discovered, the Evernote history and trash is completely gone. This would not happen if you backup Evernote data. Whether accidental or deliberate, human error can cause huge problems for individuals, small businesses and large enterprises- data loss can cause a loss of revenue, as well as the loss of important and critical information. The need to backup Evernote to another system is of utmost importance to prevent these costly occurrences.
