  1. ALL Onedrive files including onenote were deleted.


    Today I noticed when opening my onenote that all my notebooks were deleted. Checking the onedrive site I noticed EVERYTHING was gone and in the recycling bin. Has anyone else experienced this? It really makes not sense becuase I don't share anything or synchronize onedrive to any computer. There is no chance that I or anyone else deleted anything, I only use onenote.


    If you or anyone else has an explanation please let me know. My life is in onenote, I can't loose it!!

    :)

    OneNote cannot connect to OneDrive


    Windows 7 - No problem, I get a list of all my OneDrive folders for Web Locations.
    Windows 10 - Doesn't connect me logged into OneDrive and I cannot select a location. *Mad
    Note however, *Eek that if I follow the "Microsoft OneDrive" hyperlink right after the words "Web Location", it DOES open the OneDrive folder list automatically in a separate window, but that doesn't get me choice of locations on this screen so that I can choose a location. What's missing here? *Confused

    My work around for now is to keep switching back to Win7 to use OneNote there when I need to create new notebooks on OneDrive.

    OneNote Delete

    Thanks guys,

    I tried the cache thing, but when I ran OneNote /safeboot, it just opened the program with no option to clear the cache. I was about to reinstall both versions of OneNote, but decided to have one more look.

    I was still concerned about deleting the cache folder, so I read this page, which gave me the impression the world wouldn't come to an end if I did:

    Where is the OneNote cache location? How to clear the OneNote Cache?

    After a restart, that got rid of any data or pages associated with the left over notebooks. But they were still showing up, even though they were greyed out. I found a YouTube video about deleting notebooks:



    At the 2:30 mark, the author pointed out that the notebooks have to be closed. After all that, the old notebooks were gone.

    So, here's the process, as I understand it:
    -turn off sync for the notebooks
    -delete the notebooks on the local drive and/or OneDrive (check any location where they might exist)
    -open settings > Save and Backup. Note the location of the cache file. Close OneNote. Navigate there and delete the cache. Also delete backups. It won't delete any existing notebooks and I suspect the cache will be rebuilt and backups will continue to be created.
    -restart OneNote. Right click on the dead notebooks and close them (yes this is necessary)
    -go to the recent list and delete the dead notebooks

    I'm an MS fan, but Microsoft should be embarrassed. How many people would be using Office if it took that kind of effort to delete a Word or Excel document.

    I know this is verbose, but hopefully it will help others.
