Copying an entire OneNote notebook on SharePoint to a folder on the same site.

The subject pretty much describes what I'm trying to do. I'd like to setup a Monthly copy of a OneNote Book hosted on my SharePoint site to a different folder on SharePoint

I have a team of about 60 people that read and write to the same book in different tabs they break things occasionally and we lose whole weeks or sections of data. I'd like to just have a running copies to restore from. 


I just didn't see a template to complete this, and I didn't see a way to point to the the notebook. I'm just curious if it's even a possibility. I've done a fair amount of googling and haven't found what I'm looking for.

I don't have a OneNote notebook handy but if its stored within a folder of a library, have you tried either using the Copy Folder or Copy File action?  You could create a scheduled flow that does a nightly backup/copy.

I need to play with it some more I guess. It doesn't show up as a file. Maybe it has something to do with how I set it up on SharePoint. I have 20 people on it at any given time so I'm reluctant to move it. I'll just make a test doc and try moving it around with the move folder. 


The long term goal is to make quarterly copies so that if someone breaks the formatting modifies information etc I can just restore back to within a month or a quarter. There is a ton of tabs and pages sometimes if someone messes a page up I wont realize it has happened until weeks/months after the fact.
