Ok… I didn’t mean to scare all you OneNote fans out there. The picture isn’t as bleak as I made it out in my last post about how often OneNote automatically saves your work. Luckily Chris Pratley, one of the team at Microsoft responsible for OneNote put me on the straight and narrow!
Keep in mind that with OneNote 2007 you are always working against a local cache. The times you list are the intervals between replication events to those servers (which are long because http servers are slow relative to UNC shares). The saves to the cache however happen every few seconds. So even if the server goes away (because you took your laptop out of range of your wireless or some other problem), you never lose any data. And of course you can keep working while not connected to the server and the replication will take place when the server is available again.
Thanks Chris! So there you have it… saving to the local cache means that your thoughts, notes and ideas are safe and sound!
