I lost my Sticky Notes after upgrading from Windows 8 to 8.1.

I still have my Windows.old folder, which has user folders in it, and so AppData as well.

I'm hoping to recover a particular note, but need to know where to look.


This can be found in %AppData%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt.

  • Thanks! I don't understand the file format, but was able to zip my current .snt file, copy over the old one, save the note I needed, and then restore the newer file. – Louis Waweru Nov 14 '13 at 23:38
