Backing Up and Recovering Notebooks
Adjust automatic OneNote backup settings here.
If you’re paranoid about losing data, you can change the value for Automatically Back Up
My Notebook At The Following Time Interval on a sliding scale that starts at 1 minute. At
the other extreme, you can set backups to be created as infrequently as every 6 weeks. To
disable backup copies completely, clear this check box. You can also set the Number Of
Backup Copies To Keep to a value between 0 and 99,999. (You’ll want a very large hard
drive for the latter setting.)
Backup files are saved in a hidden folder in your local user profile (the %LocalAppData%
folder). Fortunately, you don’t have to dig to recover a saved backup. Click File, and then
click the Open Backups button on the Info tab, as shown next.
