I have a web-based OneNote notebook in my skydrive. So in the skydrive folder I only see a link to the notebook. I think that if I delete the link, then the notebook will be still out there, but I just won't have the link. So how do I delete the notebook itself? I can't find that delete button in either web or windows OneNote applications.
