I’m working from home today and therefore decided it would be a good time to upgrade my laptop which has been running the final beta of Office 2010 to the RTM version that I can get from MSDN. I attempted an inplace upgrade, but was stopped as this is not be permitted. I then removed the beta and installed the RTM of Office 2010. I ran Outlook and it quite happily showed me all my old profiles, my OST’s and even my secondary Exchange accounts and IMAP accounts – all without reconfiguring a thing – I thought I’d be in for a bit of work there.
However when I ran OneNote, I got the following message.
Now I’m not sure – did I sync before the upgrade or not? I’ve been away now for a week and I’ve done a fair bit of OneNote work… therefore I KNOW I have information of value in there. Looks like I’ll need to remove the RTM and install the final beta. :-(
This blog post is here to remind the rest of you to make sure that you sync OneNote BEFORE you upgrade 🙂
