    How to recover lost sticky notes.


    My sticky note vanished. I have figured out where the files reside, however I have not discovered which file actually stores the info. What I do know is that .SQLite does not change with the addition of notes. I tried to restore the old notes from an image and managed to get them back BUT the restore failed to overwrite a test note I had made prior to the restore. So... exactly which file(S) contain the actual notes?

    Lost sticky notes after upgrade to Windows 10

    Hello Fellow Windows 10 Sufferers,

    Just had to succumb to a forced Windows 10 update yesterday and lost all sorts of functionality including Sticky Notes.

    I had two issues with Sticky Notes:

    1-- Lost access to the actual Sticky Notes App completely

    2-- Lost all the notes I had typed into the sticky notes tagged to my desktop

    How I fixed these issues...

    1-- followed the suggestion on this board posted by ReneLacore (Thank you for that!) with some slight modifications. Typed Sticky Notes into the Search Windows box located next to the Windows Start Icon. When I clicked on the search result (I only got one
    item in the results), it did in fact restore the Sticky Notes app, but all my previously entered notes had been lost.

    2-- To recover lost notes, I went to Google Search and found this:

    How To Recover Deleted Sticky Notes In Windows

    I followed all the steps and was able to recover all my lost notes in a Notepad document form.

    Hope this is helpful. I should mention that I am a computer newbie, so this may not be the most elegant set of recommendations. Hope it helps!

    BAD Microsoft. BAD, BAD Microsoft!

  4. How to recover lost sticky notes.

    Win 10 v1709 update and missing Sticky Notes

    Hi,

    There is a possibility that the Sticky Notes were unexpectedly deleted on your desktop due to some errors while the update is being installed. For us to provide an accurate solution, we would need to know which build and edition of Windows 10 is currently
    installed on your PC.

    For initial troubleshooting, we suggest recovering the lost Sticky Notes by following these steps:

    • Open the File Explorer.
    • Type %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt in the address bar and then hit the Enter key.
    • Look for StickyNotes.snt file and then open it with Notepad or Microsoft Word.
    • Look for the missing notes in .snt file, copy and paste it into a new Sticky Notes.

    To avoid issues with missing Sticky Notes, it will be best to back them up. You can follow the steps provided by
    Jennifer Bri in this thread. It serves as a guide on how to back up and restore
    Sticky notes in Windows 10.

    We'll be waiting for your reply.
