microsoft onenote help

Postby lawschoolftw » Sun Aug 29, 2010 10:33 pm

Hey guys,

So I'm not the best with computers so maybe one of you guys can help. I'm trying to back up all my notebooks onto an external hard drive, but its saying I don't have permission to do it. Is there anyway of changing the settings on onenote to allow me to do this?

Thanks for any help.

ran into this problem, and there's an even better solution. just save your notebook and email it to yourself. avoid the risk of your hard drive crashing and save it in the 'cloud'.

At what point does it tell you you don't have permission? When you copy it? When you open it?

I use Microsoft Live Sync. It'll automatically sync up to 2 GB worth of files across all of your computers and your Skydrive. I have set it to sync the folders where my OneNote notebooks are, and I have never had a problem using the notebooks on different computers. I always have a copy of all of my law school files on my desktop, netbook, and online.

I've been using syncplicity (http://www.syncplicity.com/) to backup my onenote files without any problems. It's free for use on up to two computers.

Thanks, I set up an account and that puts me at ease for a bit until I can figure out why it wont back up onto my external hard drive.

When I click save as and try to save it to the external drive it says I don't have permission from the system administrator.

Try copy and pasting the OneNote file instead of save as (make sure OneNote is not open when you do this).

Here's another plug for Dropbox, which I prefer to Microsoft Windows Live Sync...

Start off with 2GB free, can expand to up to 8GB by inviting people:

I just did this with no problems. Assuming you have administrator privileges, make sure one note isn't open. If it persists, restart or possibly boot into safemode and try that.

I'm giving up on trying to figure out how to remote access OneNote from my laptop at school to my desktop at home.

Right now I just use a thumbdrive to transfer the OneNote Notbooks from computer to computer... I'm not real computer savvy... anyone see any dangers with this? I do back ups too.

For a while, I had a system that was sort of working with Windows Livemesh, but when I switched from WinXp to Win7 I started having issues (7 was always on my netbook, but I had XP on my desktop when I first built it until I acquired a license for Win7). It was cool, but very slow, and quite ineffective.

I like Dropbox a lot. Just be sure you close off OneNote/Word whenever you're going to be accessing it from another computer, as it can cause some conflicts to have multiple instances/uploads of each file at the same time.

Windows Live Sync will be merging with Live Mesh, it will keep the Live Sync name, but the storage will be reduced from Live Mesh's 5GB to 2GB. alternatively, SkyDrive, which does not have active sync properties and is merely cloud storage, is 25GB.

upgrades in the Live Sync program will be:
-the ability to Sync and access folders even if the home computer is offline from any computer, a la Live Mesh.
-sync storage from a SkyDrive (though only 2GB)
-remote access computers
-share settings in IE and Office between computers.

I used Mesh over Live Sync because of Live Sync's need to have both computers on to sync which was kind of cumbersome, however the merge will apparently make syncing faster than it was on Mesh, though I don't know if it will be faster than Live Sync's previous incarnations. If you're using Live Sync or Mesh currently, the new version will not be compatible, and we'll all need to resync our folders =(
