Hi all, I am new to this community and have a question. I created a notebook for school in Onenote 2007 earlier this year, and recently decided to upgrade my Windows OS from Vista to 7. In order to backup all my school notes, I copied all the files from the folder "Onenote notebooks" which was under my "documents" folder, then pasted those files to my external. Then I reformatted my computer, and performed clean install of windows 7, and reinstalled office 07. Then I copied and pasted those onenote files from my external back to the appropriate location under my "documents." When I started up onenote, the only notebooks available were the standard default ones when you start the program for the first time. I then tried to manually open my school notes file with onenote, and got this message: "Waiting to sync this section Another onenote program created it but has not yet uploaded the content." From doing some research on this forum, it seems that I was supposed to make my notes available to multiple users before I tried to back them up. Does anyone know how I can open my school notes? Any help is greatly appreciated. p.s. I no longer have access to the system the notes were originally created on (it was reformatted).
