Occasionally it happens that a teacher's laptop needs to be reimaged. Afterwards, they have a heck of a time trying to open the OneNote notebooks from the network shared folder. Is there an easy way to tell OneNote here is where X notebook sections are, open as a notebook and retain the location?

I insist that all their data is still on the network folder as that is where they are working from in OneNote but however the data is stored, it will only open a section at a time. OneNote doesn't recognize it as a Notebook and it doesn't keep the Notebook location saved in their OneNote settings/profile.
