Transfering Notes from one computer to another

    I am about to transfer my notes from one computer to another, and I
    would like my mobile notes to open everytime I open OneNote, like it
    does now. I know I can goto the OneNote files in My Documents and OPEN
    BACKUP, but once you shut down, the backup doesn't display anymore.

    How can I transfer ALL my current OneNote notes and settings from one
    computer to another.

    Thanks in advance!

    Transfer notebooks:

    1. A notebook is a FOLDER, not a file (containing the sections of that
    notebook as *.one files). So you have to copy a folder, named as your
    notebook.

    2. To find your notebook hold your mouse pointer over the name of your
    notebook in the navigation bar at the left. Write it down.

    3. Close OneNote

    4. Use Windows explorer to copy that folder to another computer over the
    network or an USB stick

    5. The target folder on your other computer has to be the standard
    folder for notebooks in Onenote. It depends on the OS. So look into
    Tools, Options, Save for that standard folder. Copy your notebook folder
    into that folder.

    6. Open OneNote on the netbook and open the copied notebook using File,
    Open.
    -------------------
    Transfer settings:

    Go to (for Windows XP)
    C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Microsoft\OneNote\12.0

    and copy

    * Preferences.dat
    * Toolbars.dat

    Toolbars.dat may not exist,because you didn't change your toolbars.
