Your recent weekly lesson used One Note to backup photos from Google Photos.  Why didn’t you use Microsoft Drive instead of One Note?

That had to be a typo. Where was that reference? I need to change it.

Sorry for any confusion. 

OneDrive is for online storage of files.

OneNote is a personal information manager.

Both are Microsoft apps for computer and mobile devices and are included with Office 365 which is where we get 1TB of OneDrive storage for our files, photos, and videos. I use OneNote for important documents, etc.
