Backup OneNote files to CD

    I lost a lot of my one note files when I purchased a new computer. I put them
    on CD but could not restore them from CD. I did not use the backup facility,
    as I am a new user of onenote and was unaware of this function. I now use
    back up regularly. My question is: is this the correct way to save files so I
    can put them on a CD and be able to restore them back in onenote should the
    need arise? I don't want to take a chance of losing any more files.

    Could you tell us what was the problem ?

    For saving you can just "copy" the contents of your Backup folder to a CD.
    Restore it to your standard folder "Onenote Notebooks", if necessary.

    One hint:

    After restoring from CD you have to reset the "read only" attribute of
    each restored file.
