Saving Sideloaded Content

[ Edited ]

Any advice on how to save books nor purchased from B&N (i.e., free ones from Project Gutenberg) for the eventual day when my device dies/if it needs to be reactivated (or hard returned, or whatever the term is). Before I had Wi-Fi, I first downloaded the books to my computer and then synced my Nook with my computer; however, now that I have Wi-FI and a Nook HD, I download books directly onto my Nook. Any help would be appreciated!

Personally, I have a folder on my PC called Nook and keep sub-folders there with my epubs and pdf stories.  I also have my avatars and wallpapers there.  It makes de/re register much simpler.

 

I have had my HD+ since Nov.6, 2012 and absolutely love it!  Yes, it has some quirks but I think ALL technology has them.  Its a wonderful Tablet.

 

Good luck

Similar to campyrs here (for eBooks).  I have a folder for each author, then a subfolder under that for the eBook title, and then I put the eBook in the appropriate subfolder...  I have some authors that I have 8-9 eBooks for so it helps keep me organized.

Another vote for calibre as the master library, and if you add calibre companion for 3 bucks you get wifi sync as well.

Re: Saving Sideloaded Content

I have always overkilled the whole backup thing.  After losing EVERYTHING year ago during the disatrous Windows 95 years, I learned.  Now I back up books and documents to Dropbox because it easily fits on the free space provided.  I back up music, pictures,  and documents again to an external drive.
