Another option for backing up OneNote files is Windows Live Mesh. It is similar to Dropbox and other technologies, but it has been so easy and reliable for me. It syncs up to 5 GB between any "device" that you set up and an online location. A device is usually a computer, but it could be a Windows Mobile device as well. Mesh also gives you the option to remote control any other computers in your Mesh. So even if you're at school and forgot a file on your desktop at home, you could Mesh into your desktop from your laptop in class and copy the file to your laptop.
A word of caution on using automatic services like Mesh and Dropbox to back up OneNote files - only have one copy of the OneNote file(s) open at a time. Don't leave it up on your desktop at home and then try to edit the same file on your laptop. This can cause problems.
How much does mesh cost?
Free, so is skydrive, all part of the windows live download, all you need is a windows live ID or hotmail account and those free too
Do the docs have to be on a computer's harddrive in order to retrieve remotley? And does the remote computer have to be online?
