I am using OneNote on a daily basis. I save my one note normally to OneDrive to sync everything and access it from web and mobile.

Is there any way to save a file in Google Drive (have unlimited space) and perform a sync.


  1. In OneNote > Click "New"
  2. Select "Other web locations" > And select my Google Drive (any of the folders)

Is there a way to achieve this?

  • What do you mean by "Full sync"? Have you already reviewed the Google Drive Help Center? Have you already uploaded a onenote file to Google Drive? – Rubén Aug 29 '18 at 1:08
  • Is this about the desktop version of OneNote or on Office 365? – jonsca Aug 29 '18 at 2:06

  • Can you please explain what do you mean drag-drop my OneNote File ? Does it mean it should be saved in my hard disk first and then drop it to google Drive? Which doesnt make any sense? – Ragavan Rajan Aug 29 '18 at 21:15
  • @RagavanRajan if you use the first link it will go straight to your Drive and every time you edit your OneNote file you need to "re-upload" it. if you use 2nd link you will install Drive app which will create a special folder on your hard disk and everything in that folder will be automatically synchronized with your Drive so all you need to do is to place your OneNote file into that folder and everytime you edit your file you just save your changes and all gets backed up. – user0 Aug 30 '18 at 4:38
  • Thank you. I have tried the 2nd link approach. Whenever I created new OneNote file, It is creating new folder in my Google drive. But my actual problem is solved. It is syncing. – Ragavan Rajan Sep 3 '18 at 0:49

    I wouldn't call this "full sync" because simultaneous edits by other users will create duplicate copies of the notebook, unlike syncing the notebook to OneDrive. – browly Jul 23 '19 at 21:31
