How to Fix OneNote

If you need to fix OneNote with records, Recovery Toolbox for OneNote can do this in a couple of clicks. Fixing OneNote—Microsoft OneNote note storage - takes place by copying and revising files from the damaged OneNote database to new files on disk. The tool doesn’t restore or modify existing OneNote databases. All data transfers to the new files on disk.


  • Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10 or Windows Server 2003/2008/2012/2016 and above
Note: Recovery Toolbox for OneNote does not repair the content of password protected Microsoft OneNote .one or .onenote files.


When restoring records from a damaged Microsoft OneNote database, files that are missing information may be found. That is to say, Recovery Toolbox for OneNote restored the file, but there is no data about the file name and its extension. In some cases, the program can automatically identify its type by the content of the file and set the correct extension for the file. If automatic identification of the file type is not possible, the file receives the extension .tmp.

In these cases, the user can manually change the extensions for such files. To do so, the user must:

  1. Open the file – filelist.txt stored in the folder. This file contains a list of possible extensions for saved .tmp files in the current folder
  2. Change the file extension to the first in the list
  3. Try to open the file with the changed extension with the corresponding program

If the file opens successfully, the extension is changed correctly. Otherwise, go to step 2 and use the following extension from the list in the file – filelist.txt.

Wow, it's been a year since I've been using your software. I decided to buy an extension because the program is useful and still relevant to me. Thanks.

Raquel Elliott03-19-2021

The repairing process went very quickly, but not smoothly. Separately repaired images of manual notes had to be inserted manually into the notes.

Gus Griffin02-07-2021

It can help you fix errors in your OneNote diary, but sometimes it's worth checking all the pages after repairing. Either my drawing (handwritten) was removed, or I deleted it myself.

Dana Brandon12-28-2020

The ransomware virus broke my OneNote notes, I had to get rid of old diaries. I only recovered a couple of actual notes.

Rylan Stephenson12-15-2020

Thanks for fixing corrupted handwritten notes in OneNote.


Ahah, a window popped up in MS OneNote asking you to click here to repair the damaged partition. After I pressed it, I immediately threw it out of the program and when opening the file showed another error "Damaged lost data". Eternal troubles with this OneNote, Microsoft, as always, in its own style! As for the recovery tool, I can say one thing: it recovers the file quickly, but I haven’t needed it yet. I just tried the trial version of the program.

After deleting one page, my OneNote book broke and now it does not open it. After recovering, the file opens, but now on some pages some handwritten notes have not been restored, you can help me, I will send you the restored and damaged .onenote file. I would like to recover deleted handwritten notes


This program helped me extract data from a damaged .ONENOTE file. Microsoft OneNote 2007 stopped opening my diary, the error "This Section is corrupt" popped up. Pictures were extracted to a folder, and the diary itself was restored.


After recovering the computer, there were problems opening Microsoft OneNote, writes: “It looks like this section file is damaged. OneNote may be able to fix this, but for now, you should avoid working here (error code: 0xE00001BB)." Somehow OneNote lost the partition because the file was corrupted. The program can recover the .onenote file by extracting the data. Not very convenient, but it will.


The software work like insurance for me. My OneNote records was saved!


Tool can extract only files and texts from .onenote file. Only!


I obtained it for some seconds and till now I've been using it without any failures. It's time to update my computer, Recovery Toolbox for OneNote slowly works on it. I'm sure my notebooks will be in order for long time!!!!!!
