i uninstalled office 365 2010 & upgraded to 2013 on an HP laptop

the user only has access to one of his previous onenote workbooks.  the other 6 are missing.  he keeps getting forced to sign in to live.com even though he had previous only associated his onenote to this machine & his microsoftonline login.  

i have googled around a bit but haven't been able to clarify:

where are the notebooks located? on his hard drive or the cloud. is there a way to recover them?

is there a way to synch his workbooks thru his microsoftonline ID or does he have to create a live.com ID to do that?

thx

No way for us to really answer this question with certainty, but there is a possibility that they are stored in his personal folder in SharePoint. Run OneNote, go to File -> Account -> Add a service and under Storage, select Office 365 SharePoint. Ask him to login with his credentials and go to Open and check if anything is visible there. Repeat the same procedure for normal SkyDrive account, if he has any.

Alternatively, just get him into his SharePoint library (Skydrive link on top of the portal page) and check for the missing files there.

If you access the notebooks on his sky drive and choose open in One Note you should get the link to install the Skydrive auto-logon connector (sorry...this isn't the real name for the offering, but it will be something like that).  You can then click the link and the addin is loaded so that he doesn't have to log in each time.

It is possible that the notebooks are backed up on his hard drive.  The  usual area for the backups is C:\Users\[username]\appdata\local\microsoft\onenote

Also, notebooks saved to the user's hard drive are usually stored here:
 C:\Users\[username]\Documents\OneNote Notebooks

interestingly it reappeared when he came back into the office so it defaulted so a network location.  we're going to reconfigure so he can always access remotely.  thanks for the help
