Recently, the OneNote version was upgraded to the latest OneNote 2016. When I was trying to add a new note, I mistakenly created a new section. When I tried to delete the section, the screen refreshed and I accidentally clicked Delete on a section with tons of critical notes. I tried undo but it didn’t track this change. Is it really gone or can I get it back?
Like the situation mentioned above, deleting a page in OneNote by accident is one of the common reasons for OneNote file loss. Do not worry! OneNote 2003, 2010, 2013 and 2016 has a new feature called the Notebook Recycle Bin that allows you to recover files that you had previously deleted it.
How to restore deleted OneNote files from Notebook Recycle Bin
1. Open the Share tab where you lost recent notes.
2. Choose Notebook Recycle Bin in the History group.
3. If your deleted notes are found, right-click the page tab you want to restore, then select Move or Copy command to put the notes back in the original location.
