User Case: Can I Transfer My OneNote from One SharePoint to Another?


My company recently completed a migration from one SharePoint account to another. With the migration to using HTTPS security, my OneNote notebooks stored in SharePoint will no longer sync. All my notebooks are showing un-synced errors. How can I properly move these OneNote notebooks to another account?


Hi. I'm trying to move a complete OneNote file (entirely) from one SharePoint to another, but I'm still stuck even after trying the methods described by many netizens? Is there an applicable workaround? Thank you very much.

Note: Since MultCloud supports "Real Time Sync", "One-way Sync", and "Two-way Sync" modes, you can specify what files are synced from the source SharePoint to the target. If you choose "One-way Sync", there are more options for you to choose from: "Simple Sync", "Mirror Sync", "Move Sync", and more.

Solution 3. Use "Cloud Transfer" to Transfer OneNote from One SharePoint to Another

Likewise, you can transfer OneNote from one account to another in the "Cloud Transfer" tab. Select the OneNote files you want to transfer from your first SharePoint account, select the destination path to save these folders under your destination SharePoint, click "Transfer Now" and wait for the process to complete.

There are a few things to keep in mind when using "Cloud Sync" and "Cloud Transfer":

  • You can enable email notifications in Options >> Email.
  • You can exclude/include certain files in Options >> Filter.
  • You can set up a scheduled cloud transfer or sync to automatically copy from one SharePoint to another.
  • You can not only sync/transfer files but also folders or entire SharePoint.
  • As for how to copy SharePoint to another drive, you can select one SharePoint as the source and another as the destination when creating the task, e.g. SharePoint to S3.


Following any of the above solutions, you can move OneNote from one SharePoint to another account, but the traditional method is a bit time-consuming and requires you to wait for the entire transfer to complete. If you don't have enough time, you won't be able to perform this method easily.

At this point, you can easily migrate your SharePoint data to another account directly using MultCloud without switching accounts, or downloading and uploading, etc. Additionally, MultCloud features Team Transfer, Cloud Backup, and Remote Upload. If you like to download files from torrent files or magnet links to clouds, such as downloading torrents to Dropbox, "Remote Upload" can help you do that easily.
