I was using OneNote for Mac, and created 30+ folders and content. I have an iMac with Time Machine backup. I took my iMac to a computer shop and got an upgrade to my hard drive. When the computer was returned, all of the programs worked, with the exception of OneNote, the One Note App icon bounced up and down and did not open.
I spoke to a technician who said folders should be in the OneDrive cloud, but after checking the OneNote cloud, none of these folders where there. The technician recommended I remove OneNote for Mac, and re-install. I did, and OneNote worked, but none of my previously created folders appeared.
Next I tried to go into the Time Machine, back in time, and see the ~/Library/Containers/com.microsfot.onenote.mac files from different dates. I copied a version and tried to replace the currently working com.microsoft.onenote.mac file with the version from TimeMachine, but when I did this and re-ran OneNote, the OneNote for Mac App icon returned to bouncing up and down, and had to be force quit, removed, then reinstalled.
Has anyone had this problem with OneNote for Mac and been able to successfully recover and recreate their folder structure and content? Does anyone know how I can recover the OneNote folders that I created before taking my computer to the shop? Is it possible for me to use a version of OneNote that will read these folders and import them back into OneNote? I put a lot of information into this folders and really want to be able to view them and their content in One Note, again.
