Log In to your new One Drive for Business account, your target tenant, open any OneNote file form your new One Drive for Business location. Select the "Edit in OneNote" option, which will open the file in the full OneNote desktop application. This creates a link between your One Drive for B?usiness and the One Note desktop application. Leave the notebook open and follow the remaining steps as mentioned.

7.Upload the .onpkg file saved in step 5, to the new (target) One Drive for Business. After you have uploaded the .onepkg select it to open it. It will automatically open or download and open to your full One Note desktop application by default. You want this to happen but don’t unpack the file yet.

8.After the .onepkg is opened by you in One Drive for Business in the OneNote Desktop application you must first change the path before clicking the create button. moving onenote 8

10. The Notebook will now unpack the .onpkg into a .one file, as it was in your original source One Drive for Business location. And it may take a minute or two to unpack the file. You should now have 1 single .one file with the same name located in you target One Drive for Business exactly as it appeared in your source One Drive For Business. It should be a folder with a bunch of separate .one files that use to be the different sections of the original OneNote document.
