I have four notebooks on OneDrive that I use with OneNote 2016.
I disabled automatic syncing.
When I encountered an error and couldn't boot W10, I created a backup of the entire drive and chose to reset the PC with the option
Keep my files. After the reset, I reinstalled Office, but found that the newly installed OneNote 2016 only showed the default
Quick Notes notebook. I connected my Microsoft Account, and OneNote synced with OneDrive with the result that OneNote shows the version of the notebooks stored on OneDrive – and not the up-to-date versions on the PC before the reset.
How do I retrieve the notebooks?
I don't know where OneNote stores the notebooks that are not yet synced. Keep in my mind that I also have the drive backup if helpful.
