Hi Koen,
we can try to recover your data. To do this we just need the section with the missing pages (as a .one file). Of course if it doesn't contain you private information.
We also are interested in investigating you file in order to figure out the reason of this issue and fix it.
Please send it to
We'll get in touch with you ASAP!

OK ... but how do I get to that .ONE file on Ipad. Where can I find it. As Ipad is a fairly closed system, how do you want me to find it ? The outline/onenote data is in the Local space. It's not on dropbox or anything otherwise I could have fetched it from there).

please connect your iPad with your PC (via USB), export your notebook to iTunes and save it to your local folder on PC. Unzip your notebook files. The required section should be there.
Here you can find the step by step instruction -
Please let me know how it goes.

Koen Vandromme Jun 05, 2013 01:01PM PDT worked, I was able to recover my data using the above instructions.
In fact, I ended up having a .ONE file of 360MB large. The previous version on Outline didn't seem to mind (but it took quite a long time to sync).
I'll see how I can send you the file for testing purposes.
Thanks for your help.
