How to successfully delete all traces of a recent closed Microsoft OneNote Notebook from a computer

We just deletes a series of Microsoft OneNote Notebook from a computer, leaving just a few due to the tasks of the PC computers.  We know that when using OneNote, it keeps a copy locally.  We want to delete from the local drive any contents related to the notebooks we deleted.  What is the best way to go about it?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Go to One Note, History, see the Notebook Recycle Bin, pull down the little arrow and delete the History. I do this.

Yes, but  that is  for OneNote per se. We are looking for deleting from the computer wherever theses pages are kept locally.

You must delete them. No automatic way to do that in One Note. You must delete and then remove from the One Note recycle bin

Yes, done.  So if the user decided to navigate in the folders of the computers, all traces of the notebook we deleted are gone? (that is what we want)

It says under Recycle Bin that pages are permanently deleted after 60 days. You can right click and (apparently) restore it. I do not know about administrative permissions with respect to this.

Yes, you can see the delete pages in File Explorer, but I was not able to open mine in One Note.

Found it!

After deleting the notebooks in the  apps, the files still exist in these folders.  Just went into them and shred the (there backups and pother types of folder):

c:\Users\user\Documents\OneNote Notebooks\Quick Notes.one
c:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OneNote

Besides the above, anything else I should look at in order not to leave any trace of notebooks deleted in the OneNote apps?

That is the only places the One Note pages exist.  One Note and the folder.
