Chapter 6. Working with Note Files > Backing Up OneNote Files

Backing Up OneNote Files

You'll probably notice that there's no save button on any of OneNote's toolbars. That's because OneNote automatically saves your pages, sections, and folders when they are open. OneNote acts very much like a notepad; once you've written or typed the information, it's saved almost immediately. This greatly reduces the possibility of losing your OneNote information if your computer crashes. While there's still a possibility you could lose a few minutes of information, the vast majority of your information will be retained. In addition to saving your notes continuously, when you exit OneNote, it performs an additional save of all open sections and pages.

Just because OneNote saves your information continuously doesn't mean you shouldn't back up your information. Computers can and do crash, and sometimes hard drives become corrupt and unreadable. Imagine how you'd feel if you lost your spiral-bound notebook that contained all of your class notes or project-planning information. Backing up your OneNote information is a smart idea.
