How to Restore Sticky notes Windows 7

Likes # 0

Help please, I had until today two sticky notes full of info which appear on desktop at Start UP. Today they were not there. I can create new notes OK just my open ones are missing. Will I have to stab in the dark with a system restore date or is there some other possible solution? Win 7 64 bit Thanks.

Have a look in - drive:\Users\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt see if listed there. If so try refreshing the desktop or loging off and on again.

Thanks for reply SickyNotes.snt present but is a "windows cant open this file" Tried restart and system restore to no avail, notes seem to be lost forever.

Not sure if this will work now that you've used system restore but find StickyNotes.snt under your name again then right click the file and select 'restore to previous version'.
