I am using Windows 7 and OneNote 2010.
I have two OneNote files that I cannot open. Unfortunately, I do not have access to the original source to sync or rebuild my OneNote files.
The files are procedures that I developed over three years. So I would really like to recover anything I can.
The initial message I get is:
This file is from a different version of OneNote. Your version cannot load this file. There may be a converter available on the Office.com Web site that will enable it to do so.
When I try to open or select it from within OneNote, I get:
OneNote does not recognize this file and it cannot be opened.
It may not be a OneNote file or it may be corrupted.
I have tried converting it to OneNote 2007 or OneNote 2010 by going to the properties. But have been unsuccessful.
When I go to the 'Notebook Sync Status' I can see the following errors:
This file does not appear to be a valid OneNote section file. It may be a file of another type that has been renamed to have a .one extension. (Error code: 0xE00000C8)
And of course, I cannot sync.
Any help would be appreciated.
