  1. Sticky notes backup does not work


    Hi experts,


    Please help me with the issue about backup StickyNotes


    I replaced all the files in folder %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState with my old files copied from old laptop; however, sticky notes opened just blank notes, except for the flash of my old notes.


    P/S: I have triedreset, uninstall the app but the problem remains unsolved.

    Copied the filesplum.sqlite did not help neither.


    Thanks

    :)

  2. Sticky Note Missing

    Hi KeithRawlings,

    I'm Charles, an Independent advisor trying to help.

    Let's see if with the following steps we can solve the problem:

    1.- Open >> Sticky notes, when located on the taskbar (Right click on the option) >> Select: List of Notes, now check if your note is in that list.

    2.- Follow the steps suggested by the Windows MVP in your article

    I hope the steps work for you

    Attentive to any comments

    Have a happy day

    Best Regards,

    Charles.

  3. 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.
