I can do a backup of Reminders, Calendar, Contacts, from within the application should I ever want to restore the detail. I actually do this daily along with Bookmarks. Problem comes with Notes. I need to do the same type of backup. I do not use iCloud. With Stickies, you could backup the Stickes database. Is there such a database that can be used to restore the Notes? Thanks.

OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    I gather that I should backup the entire folder com.apple.notes?

    Yes, I would.

    But why not just use Time Machine?

    So when I say "~/Library" I mean your hidden Library in your Home folder. Go to your Finder "Go" menu hold the option key to choose "Library". YOu can then drag it to your Sidebar for easy access.

     

    ~/Library/Safari/Bookmarks.plist

    ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook

    ~/Library/Calenders (also check ~/Library/Application Support/iCal) although I think those are old.

    ~/Library/Containers/Reminders
