Default I want a tutorial on what directories/files OneNote 2010/13 and Office 365 create

I can't figure out where my 2013 notebook is and how I get it to open in Office 365.

I bought OneNote 2010, upgraded to 2013. This was a solo MS product that I thought I was confining to my PC. No cloud stuff. I have Windows backups for my PC user accounts. Thought I was well covered there.

I got one of those hostage attacks that totally wiped out my internal hard drive. I had to buy a new one. My OS image was restored. I have to reload all my software. To add complication I was in the midst of dumping Thunderbird and trying to get Outlook set up. Instead of buying the single Outlook program I went for the Office 365 subscription. I think that was a big mistake but I'm willing to try to figure it out. I got Outlook set up and working. Moving on to OneNote, the notebook created in 2010/13 will not open in 365. I don't even know what file to open.

I've worked with PC's since the DOS days. I was an Office superuser, now retired and not too interested in all this new cloud stuff. I think I need pictures (flow chart?). Here's what I want to know:
  1. What directories and files were created with 2010/13?
  2. What is the purpose of the various file types. (.one; .onecache; .onetoc2).
  3. Was there some saving going on to OneDrive with 2010/13 that I was unaware of? I don't recall setting up OneDrive.
  4. With Office 365 am I working with a file in the cloud? or the one on my pc? or both?
  5. What steps were these programs taking for saving? How many places are files being saved to?
  6. Was I supposed to be doing a regular export/backup from 2010/13 that could be loaded to 365?
  7. How do I open the pre-crash notebook in Office 365?

I'm using a Windows 7 Professional system.

Thanks, Jude
