OneNote 2013 is a great program, and gives you a lot of different ways to centralize your important notes and ideas. In fact, the more you use OneNote, the more likely you are to start relying on the information stored within it. Since this can result in OneNote containing a lot of important data, it is a good idea to learn how to generate backups manually within the program.

In the final step below, when you’re on the OneNote Backup menu, you are going to see a bunch of options that will allow you to configure your backups.
