How Can I Back up My Microsoft OneNote to My Google Drive?

“I primarily use OneNote for keeping track of notes on procedures, help items, knowledgebase of sorts. I want all the info to be available on Google Drive. Can someone tell me how to backup OneNote to Google Drive?”

Why Need to Sync OneNote to Google Drive?

Microsoft OneNote is a program for free-form information collection and personal information management. By storing user notes, photos, audio, and video clips, it can collect and organize information so that it can be used for search and multi-user collaboration.

Generally, OneNote information is stored in your hard drive and this information may be lost or unavailable due to a system crash or hardware failure. According to the 3-2-1 backup rule, you'd better keep one copy of OneNote data in cloud to avoid losingng all of them at once.


Google Drive, one of the most popular cloud storage in the world, generously provides 15GB of storage space for each newly registered account. More and more people prefer to synchronize OneNote to Google Drive, not only because its storage space can meet the needs of most people, but also because of the convenience and advanced features of Google Drive.
