Support for MS OneNote
I'm trying to share my Microsoft OneNote notebook via BoxCryptor/Dropbox with another computer, but OneNote doesn't even recognize it as a shared folder. Not sure if this is related to the missing network share feature or if another "flag" or something is missing here. Would be nice to be investigated because it would be a very useful feature, at least for me :)...
Thanks and regards,
I know this is kind of old, but I have been using boxcryptor and OneNote for a long time.
But after switching to the new version of boxcryptor and upgrading to OneNote 2013 has broken something. Just working a couple of minutes on a notebook stored on the monted boxcryptor drive will corrupt the notebook and a never ending cycle of OneNote repair has to be done.

Let me raise this problem again. I see this issue too with OneNote 2010 and latest version of BoxCryptor through DropBox. Basically the problem is just with BoxCryptor storage. When I add sections to OneNote document, sometimes they disappear from the document. Seems like each time OneNote tried to save document, just after that BC overrights it with newer timestamp. Not sure how the actual changes got lost and why.... Anybody can give me a clue?

I too have issues with onenote.
It just will not sync across multiple computers. OneNote 2010/2007 + Dropbox works surprisingly well with very little conflicts. But the added layer of Boxcryptor breaks that functionality with some changes going through and others ignored.
I am using the latest version of Boxcrytor, Dropbox, and running Windows 7. Sync works fine when reverting to Dropbox general folder.
Some changes go through but others do not. I tried recreating the tabs and then it syncs the container but nothing is populated and the error message is "Waiting to sync this section. Another
OneNote program created it but has not yet uploaded the content."
I have a custom-named folder called "Secure" with filename encryption as per default, and secure local drive "S:". It may be just too many layers of syncing with OneNote --> Drive --> Secure Drive --> Dropbox --> Secure etc..
my problem could be related to the fact that windows sees the encrypted BoxCryptor drive as "Local Disk" and not as "Network Drive".
The latter would make more sense at least for me because BoxCryptor is intended to be used with Dropbox and therefore it is not a "local disk".
OneNote seems not to sync reliably if it thinks the files are on a local disk, so I would appreciate an option to change the type of the disk drive or something else that could help...
Or does anyone have other experiences or ideas to handle my problem ;)?
Thanks and regards,
