  1. In an enterprise environment, how do I backup and restore Sticky Notes for a user?


    Hi,

    Microsoft recently made a change to Sticky Notes. When I copy the plum.sqlite file from a user profile on one computer to their new computer Sticky Notes will not load.

    I've seen that Microsoft encourages "Cloud Sync" to backup Sticky Notes, but that is not a viable option in an enterprise environment.

    We have many users who still use Sticky Notes to manage tasks and need to ensure that we can migrate these notes from one computer to another.


    Please provide a fix or solution so administrators can manage user data.


    Thank you,

    Ryan

    :)

  2. Sticky Notes Backup / Restore

    Hello,

    To back up and restore notes from Sticky Notes app in Windows 10, we'll have to specify which version of Windows are you using. Here's a simple guide on how to check the build and version of your PC:

    • Press the Windows button + R.
    • Type winver.

    Once we're able to determine your PC's build and version, follow the steps below to locate the storage files of Sticky Notes and create a backup:

    • Open File Explorer, click the View tab.
    • Select Show/hide option then check the Hidden items box.
    • To find the Sticky Notes storage folder, copy and paste the location below into your File Explorer's address bar.
      username is the name of your actual user account.
    • For build 1607 or later: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Package\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_8wekyb3d8bbwe\
    From there, you can copy everything and paste it to the backup folder.

    • For anything lower than build 1607: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\
    You will only see a single file: StickyNotes.snt. You can copy and paste it to the backup folder.

    To restore the files to Sticky Notes, make sure the Sticky Notes app is closed. Locate the same folder we pointed you to above and copy all your backed up files there, overwriting whatever’s there currently. When you launch Sticky Notes again, the notes
    you backed up previously should pop up.

    Please be reminded that notes in the desktop and Store app versions of Sticky Notes aren’t compatible. You won’t be able to copy notes from a PC running Windows 7 to a PC running Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

    Should there be anything else, do let us know.

    If you think this was useful, do not hesitate to "mark it as an answer" to help those who are facing the same problem.

    Sticky Notes backup/restore

    Hi Karl,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Do you get any error while trying to restore your notes from the backup?



    I suggest to try copying the contents of the folder from the previous installation to 1809.



    • On Windows 10 1709 machine, navigate to the folder:
      C:\Users\Username\Appdata\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState
    • Copy the contents (all files) of the folder and save them to a new folder on Windows 1809 machine.
    • Close all open instances of Sticky notes app.
    • Navigate to the same location (C:\Users\Username\Appdata\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState) on Windows 10 1809 machine, copy the contents of the new folder to this location.
    • Close Windows Explorer, launch the Sticky notes app and see if your notes are restored.


    Hope it helps.
