OneNote 2010 Answers on File Formats and Data Portability



onenote2010logoAsk and ye shall receive.

Since OneNote 2010 has been released as a Technical Preview there have been a lot of user questions about the new file format and data portability between the past version and the new version.

Daniel Escapa from the OneNote team to the rescue with answers. He’s blogged how this all works and for those seeking answers you should check it out.

The good news is that there are options available for converting OneNote 2007 data, continuing to use OneNote 2007 data, and sharing OneNote data with users who may not be moving as quickly as you to the new OneNote 2010.

    In my case, there’s only 5 people at work who have OneNote, and we’ll be among the first to upgrade to 2010 upon its availability, but it’s still nice that while I’m testing it, I can keep my notebooks in 2007 format to share with my boss.

    This is definitely a smart move on the part of the OneNote team! :)
