Windows 7: How to convert OneNote files?

How to convert OneNote files?

I have some files a friend sent me in the .one format. I don't have OneNote, and I am trying to find a converter or some other method in order to convert the files to a format I can use, such as a .doc, .jpg, or .mp4. I've already tried changing the suffix to a different format, but without success. Is there a freeware converter I could use, or are there only commercial programs available?

Don't know about a converter, would google for it, but while the format is binary, the text is plain. SO while you will lose all formatting and embedded images, you CAN load the.one files into something like notepad++ and get all the text out at least.

You could get your friend to resend them to you as OneNote self executable files - the information with onenote reader inbuilt. This was specifically incorporated by M$ for collaboration with people without onenote installed.

While I was investigating a replacement for Onenote, I stumbled across EverNote, (available in the free software thread), but eventually switched to TreedbNotes (Evernote free version lacking password protected files), though I believe Evernote can import onenote files...

Thank you both for your helpful replies! Unfortunately, the OneNote files are video clips. Would TreedbNotes or Evernote work with video files, allend66?

As First Aid, you could download and install a free 60-day trial of Ms Office. Gives you two months time to check those OneNote files.

TreedbNotes doesn't import, I believe... - what happened when I made the switch to freeware was simply copy/paste before my Onenote trial period was up.
Evernote when I tried it didn't last long enough to import *.one files as I didn't like the style / layout, but you could investigate.

<groan> I don't know why I didn't think of this before *smacks own forehead*

You can open your onenote file with Skydrive. Extract the videos, done.

Thanks for the suggestion, allend66, I'll give Skydrive a try and let you know how it goes.

Well Allend66, your method didn't work unfortunately. I loaded the file into my Skydrive account, but there was no "Edit in Browser" function, it was completely missing! I think this may be because I have to import the entire "notebook" or database into Skydrive. This is impossible, as it is just a single video file. I might just try Freedb and see if that works.
