Ever wondered where Microsoft’s OneNote stores its files on the Mac?

OneNote stores all its data in the location. “~/Library/Containers/com.microsoft.onenote.mac/Data/Library/Application Support/Microsoft User Data/OneNote/

To go to that location, open Finder.

Press Go on the Apple menu bar into Go > Go to Folder…

Or Press Shift+Command+G and paste the location below into the Go to Folder window.

~/Library/Containers/com.microsoft.onenote.mac/Data/Library/Application Support/Microsoft User Data/OneNote/
Code language: JavaScript (javascript)

The image below shows an example of the data stored in this location; you can copy this folder if you wish to do a manual backup.
