Microsoft’s Suggestion for OneNote a Single Section or Page won’t Sync

There may be times when your shared notebook is syncing normally, except for one of its sections or pages. You can verify this by doing the following:
  1. In the OneNote desktop app, click File > Info > View Sync Status.
  2. In the Shared Notebook Synchronization dialog box that opens, click any notebook icon with a yellow triangle warning icon over it to see the name of any section that’s causing sync problems.
  3. Click the Sync Now button next to the notebook containing the section.
Individual notebook sections can occasionally stop syncing properly. If you have a single section whose pages aren't syncing with the rest of an otherwise up-to-date notebook, you can try the following workaround:
  1. In the OneNote desktop app, create a new section within the same notebook. 
  2. Copy (but don’t move) all of the pages from the old section into the new one that you just created. You can do this by right-clicking each page, and then clicking Move or Copy.
  3. When all of the pages have been copied to the new section, press Shift + F9 to manually sync the notebook. If a progress bar appears, wait for it to finish.
If following these steps successfully syncs the pages in the new section that you created, you can safely delete the old section and then continue working in the new. After the old section is deleted, you can rename the new section to the same name as the deleted section.
If these steps don’t work, section sync errors or problems can also be caused by a corrupted section located in the Notebook Recycle Bin. If you no longer want that section, you can delete it from the Recycle Bin to stop the error:
  1. In the OneNote notebook, click the History tab, and then click the Notebook Recycle Bin.
  2. Right-click the section (or page) and choose Move or copy.
  3. You can also Copy and Paste the pages or content in the section to another page or section. Once that’s done, you can delete the original section or page.
