    OneNote file problem

    I moved my one note folder in my documents when organizing folders, not realizing that it would break the connection with the program. I then move it back to the default My documents/One note notebooks but when I go to open the notebooks in One Note 2010 I only have all the separate folders and not the notebook container.

    I think too much time has gone by to restore from backup.

    You can go to File - Info, and under My Notebook there is a Settings button that allows you specify where is your default OneNote folder. Just click Settings and Properties, then Change location.

    Alternatively you can go to File - Options, and then Save & Backup. Under Save there's a list of your default folders. You can modify the settings of your Default Notebook location to point wherever you want.

    Hope this helps.

    I would like to use guide below or in case OneNote is corrupted by unknown reason to use helpful topics below … ck-5617456 … g-onenote/ OneNote Repair Toolbox

    Step 1
    Click the "File" tab above the OneNote ribbon. Select “Info” on the menu and click the "Open Backups" icon in the right panel of the Info section. The software opens Windows Explorer and displays the names of notebook backups stored on your computer. In detail view, this list also shows the date of the last backup for each notebook.
    Step 2
    Place your cursor on the name of the notebook that you want to restore and click "Open" in the dialog box to choose the entire notebook. After OneNote retrieves the notebook and its sections, you will see the notebook’s name in the OneNote sidebar.
    Step 3
    Restore a section within a notebook by clicking on the name of the folder that contains the section that you want to restore. After the folder opens, scroll through the list of section names to find the one you need. Highlight the section name before you press "Open" in the dialog box. OneNote places the section in its original notebook. To restore several sections, hold the "CTRL" key and highlight each section name to add it to your selections.
