    Hey guys: having trouble syncing my personal folder in One Note to my skydrive account. problem is the personal folder does not show at all in skydrive. just loaded mesh and that did nothing to resolve. because of battery issues i would like to do a factory restore, but i need most of the documents ive created in one note mobile. any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

    Hmm, so you are syncing One Note on your phone with SkyDrive. Are you sure you are looking at the right SkyDrive folder, using the same Live ID as your phone. I think you may have to turn this on in Settings/Applications/Office. My sync with SkyDrive was painless. Syncing SkyDrive with my desktop took a couple tries though.

    found the issue but not the solution.

    "3. How do I sync a notebook I started on my phone up to SkyDrive for the first time?

    On Start, flick left to theApp list, and then tap Office .

    a. Flick toOneNote, and then tapAll .

    b. TapRefresh .

    c. TapYes in the Sync with SkyDrive? message box.

    d. Wait while you're signed in with your Windows Live ID.

    e. Afterward, a personal notebook named Personal (Web) will be created in yourMy Documents folder on Windows Live SkyDrive and synced on your phone."

    It appears I never selected "all" to sync my Personal folder. Since "all" is no longer available, I'm stuck. thoughts?

    still investigating: performed a long press on the "personal folder" and got this message:
    This notebook has older notes that are larger than 4mb and wont be uploaded to SkyDrive"

    Anyone ever experience/see this and/or have any thoughts short of me emailing each and every note to myself?

    sadly, never did come to an acceptable solution. emailed docs have been restored to one note the old fashioned way and are now syncing with SkyDrive...

    I am having the same problem. I created a couple of one notes in the office app of my phone. But the notes do not show up in Skydrive. Also when I open one of the files, there is no option to save it to Skydrive. Does anybody else have an idea to a soulution.? Thanks
