Default How to open all existent notebooks?

Hi all,

I reinstalled the OS and now I'm facing with having the same setup for each application. So is there a way to open all notebooks I created with the preavious installation of windows?

Did you back up these notebooks?

OneNote stores workbooks in a folder, usually located on your 'My Documents' - called 'OneNote Notebooks'. Simply copy the contents of this directory to your new OneNote Notebooks directory on the new installation of windows.

Then just open a workbook, they'll open in OneNote as it did before.

If you did not back up your workbooks before formatting your hard drive and have no backup alternative (network etc) - i'm afraid your onenote workbooks may be lost (although i'm not certain of this - but I don't see any other way it restores workbook content from)
