Corrupt Notebooks after synching with OneDrive - v2.1

Vance Mar 03, 2014 10:50AM PST

After adding some text and adding/resizing some screenshots in Outline, the notebook becomes corrupted.

The message I get in OneNote 2013 is: We're sorry, something went wrong during sync. We'll try again later. (Error code: 0xE0000B58)

OneNote 2013 and the MS OneDrive web based OneNote are unable to open the section modified in Outline.

Now the shared notebook is useless. What should I do???

does it open and show fine in Outline?
Does encrypting and decrypting the section help to resolve this issue?

Same problem as Vance. Just bought your Outline on Mac, did some changes, and then.... Code Error 0xE0000B58.

Not really a nice start!

Hope you have found the problem.

Hello Rita,

Hope you are fine!

I`m sorry this happened to you!

Please try the following troubleshooting:

1) Open Outline and identify the corrupted section
2) Set password on that section
3) Completely remove password protection from this section.

Now check if it opens fine in OneNote.

I`ll be looking forward to hearing from you soon!

I have a similar problem.

The error in OneNote is...
Can't sync section: Beverages
We're sorry, but we ran into a problem and couldn't open this section. (Error code: 0xE00001B4)

At first Outline created several unnamed pages. I eventually deleted them after syncing between Outline and OneNote through OneDrive failed to work. OneNote was also complaining about corrupt sections.

please try to password protect the problem section in Outline, then remove password protection completely and sync again.

Does OneNote show it now? Does this solution work for you?

Please let me know.

Too late. I already recreated the pages with the issue.

Why would password protecting/unprotecting affect the syncing?

Corrupted sections cause synchronization errors. Protecting/unprotecting process rebuilds a section and may fix possible errors.
