    Sync Onenote 2010 with Skydrive (Windows 8.1)


    I have no problem syncing in a W7 environment but if I do it in W8.1 it fails.

    Using the Onenote Metro App (also installed locally) it works.

    Can it be fixed? I much prefer the complete MS Onenote 2010 than the Metro App.

    Hi Saintor,

    Do a test... by removing the OneNote App from your Windows 8.1, see if your files will sync with your Skydrive. Then re-install it back if it works.

    Thanks but MS Onenote 2010 (Desktop) was installed before Onenote App (metro). I did try anyway but this doesn't seem the case. This looks like a known issue and I would hope that one setting in the registry could change it.

    No it didn't help anyway.

    I did a local copy of my 5Gb files before doing anything. I turned off Skydrive on my tablet but there was another setting elsewhere that was not taken care of and all Skydrive were deleted on the network. I disabled Skydrive right in the registry.

    Guess what ? In my local copy, all the Onenote files (same names) were in fact all shortcuts. I lost everything in Onenote. I'll see tomorrow on my laptop at work, but I am *pissed off*.

    Dropbox here I come. It works perfectly with Onenote 2010. No insanity.

    Microsoft messed up a nice thing AGAIN. My Skydrive days are OVER.

We won’t be offering a way to sync between PCs without using the cloud as we’ve found that it adds complexity. Both technical complexity as well as, more importantly, complexity in the overall user model. The SkyDrive model is really quite simple in that it’s “cloud-first” and not “cloud-optional”...
