      Does anyone know how to backup a Nook tablet? I haven't seen an option or an appto do this. Any ideas?

          All of your B&N content is already automatically backed up to your B&N on line account.  If you ever have to exchange (as I have) or reset your nook, all apps, books, magazines, etc. will automatically reload to your device.  If you sideload content, you should keep a copy on your PC since that will have to be redone.

            While this is true to a point, data, settings and other things are not backed up... It would be nice to have this ability for us who have no interest in rooting / sideloading.. Example is game level data, browser bookmarks, general settings, app data / settings ect....

              You should always backup your ebooks. There is no guarantee they will always be available at B&N to download them again. If B&N or the publisher loses the rights to the books, they will be gone.

                although there should be a record on your barnes and noble online account...my son deleted 3 books that I bought off my nook and now I cannot re-access them.  I'm not sure how barnes and noble will support it's users if something major were to happen.

                 

                I know when I tried to find the order for these 3 books it was buried several pages in and sometimes it would come up under orders and sometimes it wouldn't....so if there is a better way to back up the nook I would love to know, not sure I trust Barnes and Noble.

                  Download Nook for PC.

                   

                  Download your books to it.

                   

                  Find the folder where the books are saved.

                   

                  Copy those books to another folder for safekeeping. Perhaps even to a SD Card.

                   

                  Those books you can now read on Nook provided you remember the credit card number you used to buy them with.

                    You can get your books back just call B&N customer service and tell them that your child deleted your book and they will restore them back and if you have the order number it will be done faster.
