I am a new user to OneNote.  I want to set it up in a shared environment using a network drive.  We have both network drives and a SharePoint site.  I’ve done some testing and the network drive synchronizes faster than the SharePoint site.  I want to use OneNote to organize several projects which will consist of several documents that I want paste into OneNote.

I have 3 questions:

1)  Will OneNote get slower and slower as notebooks grow with text and pasted files (Word, Excel, and PDF files)?

2)  I would like to ensure I always have the notebooks backed up.  Is there away within OneNote to automatically back up shared notebooks?

3)  Related to question 2, is it possible to have a notebook on my C drive and that same notebook on a shared drive and it would sync the C drive on a set schedule?  If so, then I would essentially have a backup copy (one on my C drive and one on the shared drive).  Keep in mind that there will be about 6 users.

I would like to get this set up correctly the first time so that is why I’m asking so many questions.
