My OneNote files are unreadable or corrupt. Will SecureRecovery for OneNote restore them?
SecureRecovery for OneNote is a powerful tool for restoring damaged or corrupted files.
If your files will not open or if they show other signs of damage, download the demo version of SecureRecovery for OneNote. The demo will show you if the lost information is retrievable, at which point you can decide whether or not to purchase a license.
Will the recovered files be identical to my original OneNote files?
In most cases, the recovered files contain the same information, although some corruption may be permanent. This can cause certain features to become inaccessible. While the demo version of SecureRecovery for OneNote has limited functionality, it allows you to see whether your data will be able to be restored, so we recommend using the demo to analyze your damaged files.
Recovered OneNote files may appear noticeably smaller than the original files due to the way that recovery tool processes damaged file areas. This is completely normal and does not always result in usability issues. Also, the demo version will create smaller OneNote files, because some notes will be replaced with placeholders (see the next answer for more information).
I am interested in trying the demo version. How is the demo different from the licensed SecureRecovery for OneNote?
The demo version will only recover a small number of your notes, and all additional notes will be replaced by our demo text. This allows you to see whether notes are recoverable before you purchase a license.
The full version does not have limitations on the number of notes that it can recover. However, please note that if placeholder text is absent in the demo output of SecureRecovery for OneNote, this can indicate permanent data loss, and the affected notes may not be recoverable.
Can I create batch files to recover many different OneNote files?
You can access our file recovery tools through the command line if you have an appropriate license (the Standard version does not support this feature, but both the Service and Enterprise versions have command line access). This is the recommended command line call without brackets:
You can use the characters ‘?’ and ‘*’ as a replacement for individual characters or groups of characters, respectively. For instance, *.doc would target any document file, while june??.doc would target files with the “june” prefix followed by two additional characters.
How are the SecureRecovery for OneNote license options different, and how do I choose the right license?
