How to Backup Microsoft OneNote to Google Drive

Microsoft OneNote backs up your notebooks, sections, and your notes or pages if a change is made. The location where OneNote stores your data is wholly dependent if you are online or offline. When you’re online, OneNote keeps and syncs your data onto Microsoft OneDrive and the user’s local hard drive, but if you’re offline, OneNote will only back up and sync the data to the local hard drive. To save your OneNote data to Google Drive you must be online as it requires a bunch of online functions to accomplish.
