OneNote backups

We are building a mission critical application in OneNote 2013 and I want to develop a backup methodology that lets me restore from a few days back in case we discover a corruption.

I changed the option 'Number of backup copies to keep' to 10, then have it set to back up every day.  

Under my backup folder path it created subfolders '15.0/Backup' which then contains folder for each of my notebooks.  I can see recent additions to some of the folders so the backup does seem to be saving changes daily, but it is not separating them into separate folders for each day.

Is there a way to set up OneNote backup so that each day it creates a separate backup such that I could go back 3 days and get the state of all notebooks without changes made more recently than 3 days ago?

Thanks!

Hi,

What os do you running? Iam using for backup of OneNote cloud Dropbox save every change for 30days and its easy to restore.

But in other backup need Iam using integrated backup in os win7 you will not see the structer of backup but it will restor it for you as you need.

Or use external software iam using http://www.cobiansoft.com/index.htm at my clients it will make you backup structure as you like you can do lot more and its free. Supports shadow copy.

I figured it out, within the backup if you drill into each notebook you see multiple copies of each updated Section with the date that backup was made.  

See example:

SAP - ERP.one (On 1-23-2014).one
SAP - ERP.one (On 2-3-2014).one
SAP - ERP.one (On 2-4-2014).one
SAP - ERP.one (On 2-5-2014).one

Thanks for your help!
