  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.

    Thank you for the information.

    You should backup first your old Sticky Notes, then restore them. To do so, please follow the steps below:

    To back up Sticky Notes from old:

    • Press Windows key + R to open Run dialog box.
    • Copy and paste %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState, then hit
      Enter.
    • Copy the plum.sqlite file to where you like as a backup of your Sticky Notes. (E.g. USB)

    To restore Sticky Notes in your new SSD:

    • Close all running Sticky Notes.
    • Copy and paste %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState, then hit
      Enter.
    • Open the location of the backed up plum.sqlite file.
    • Copy the backed up plum.sqlite file into the LocalState folder.
    • Click on Replace the file in the destination when window "The destination already has a file name plum.sqlite" appears.
    • Once you're done with the procedure, open the Sticky Notes app to have your restored Sticky Notes.

    Feel free to post back should you need further help.
