    Backing up OneNote?


    Hello! I was wonding if I can backup OneNote? Like if I want to do a clean install of Win10 in the future. Right now I'm using Notepad for all of my notes but thinking about moving everything to OneNote if I could back it up.

    -Thanks!!

    OneNote is ALWAYS sync'd to OneDrive and backed up in AppData:

    When you do a clean install and the reinstall OneNote(2013 Desktop version?) it will re sync for you.

    One more question... How do you check for what version of OneNote your using? I have the one that comes with Windows 10.

    Hi. Looking for some clarification...

    I am using Windows 10 and Office 2010. If I understand this correctly, there are two versions of OneNote on my system (which I will refer to as A" and "B"):

    • Version "A" - Microsoft OneNote 2010 . I dont use this one- it currently only has default notebooks - which I see in \Users\AppsData and in \UserDocuments )

    • Version "B" - OneNote ( Windows Store App). I use this one , and it's currently at Ver 17.6228.100910. I have set up a few notebooks on using this desktop version, and they sync perfectly with OneNote on my WinPhone and OneNoteOnline on the Web ( ..//onedrive.live.com). As well I see OneDrive/Files/Documents/Notebook has a shortcut to OneNoteOnline.


    My question is about backups and offline files for Version "B"....

    The screen shots in the thread above seem to be a mix of the two versions, but my question is for Version B only - the one that came with Windows 10, now on Ver 17.XXX - in what local folder on my desktop would I find the notebooks? I would like to back them up locally.

    I see nothing under \UserData\AppData and nothing under \UserData\Documents and no options in the OneNote app itself. I even tried finding them with my faithful Agent Ransack search engine, but they are nowhere to be found.

    I even checked my local folder which auto-syncs with OneDrive, hoping to see a local copy of my Notebooks there, but all I see there, under D:\OneDrive\Documents, is the same short to the notebooks on OneDriveOnLine. I have no local copies of my notebooks that I can see, and no way to go on line to manually grab a copy.

    What am I missing?

    For obvious reasons, I cannot use any app if I cannot backup the data locally.

    @mediaman09, I'm not quite sure, as I use OneNote2013(desktop version) for everything, but looking around, I "believe" it uses OneDrive, and if you have that set to also save locally on your PC as well as on Microsofts servers, it saves in that folder. As I said I use OneNote2013, and have only opened and sync'd the Universal app version as a backup.

    Thanks for trying. I used to believe OneNote for Windows 10 uses OneDrive as well, but I just dont see it there nor can I find any way to back up OneNote for Windows 10. So looks like I will have to scrap it, before I invest too much time building up notes that I can lose any time..

    OneNote on my phones (both Win8 and Android) , syncs perfectly with OneNote Oneline , which syncs perfectly with OneNote for Windows 10 desktop, so I am 99% there, but without a backup, its useless to me. I tried to set up OneNote2010 desktop, but it wont sync with anything.
