Backup and restore OneNote

OneNote gemmer automatisk dine noter, mens du arbejder. Hvis din OneNote er sat op til at gemme lokalt på pc'en og ikke på et OneDrive, bør du jævnligt sikkerhedskopiere dine notesbøger på samme måde som resten af dine filer og data på din pc. Det kan ske for alle, at harddisken går i stykker eller pc'en bliver stjålet, og hvis det sker for dig, vil dine noter være væk for altid.

Backup

Open OneNote (not the OneNote app).

Select the “Files” tab.

Select “Settings”.

Select "Save and Backup".

On the right side of the window, select "Backup folder" and click "Edit".

Then select a new destination folder for your backup.

Once you select the destination folder, click the "Select" button.

Then, click on the "Back up changed files now" button and then on "Back up all notebooks now".

After backup, you will receive the message "Backup complete".

Finish by clicking OK at the bottom of the window.

You have now backed up your notes and, for your safety, check that a copy of your OneNote files is now in your backup destination folder.

Restore

After backing up Onenote, you can restore your notes if / when you need them.

Open OneNote and select "Files" and then "Information". Select "Open Backups".

Browse / click to the folder where you saved your backup. Click to "Notebook name". Select the section(s) you want to recreate, and then click the Open button.

At the top of "Open Sections", the selected sections you just opened from the backup files will now appear.

Now your notes are restored.
