How long is the retention duration for page versions in OneNote? Is it possible to keep all older versions of a page infinitely?

    Hi there Klaus

    Thanks for posting on QandA platform,

    To review the existing versions to see if any should be pruned. The default pruning rules are: We keep all of the changes for the first 2 days. Older than that, we remove all but the first from any 1-hour period for the next 5 days.

    find this here
