How to Backup and Restore Sticky Notes in Windows 10 (2018)


If you’re running the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (build 1607 or later), you’ll find them in the following location, where username is the name of the actual user account, of course. Browse there or just copy and paste the location into your File Explorer address bar:
Then, copy plum.sqlite file in that location to a backup folder placed wherever you want. Just keep in mind that you’ll want to periodically back up these items so you have a fresh copy or ensure that they’re included in your normal backup routine.

To restore the files to Sticky Notes — say, on another computer so you can have the same notes there — first, make sure the Sticky Notes app is closed. Locate the same folder I pointed you to above and copy backed up files there, overwriting whatever’s there currently. When you launch Sticky Notes again, the notes you backed up previously should pop up.

Good luck backing up your notes!

  1. It worked!!! I was so nervous to try this because I didn't want to risk losing hundreds of sticky notes. But I had no other choice due to my having to reset my laptop back to factory settings to try and fix the BSODs I repeatedly kept getting. So my laptop has been reset and I now have all my sticky notes back thanks to this video. The instructions were simple to follow and worked like a charm. I am grateful. Thank you Windows Love for posting.

  2. searched in packages file says no match found???????????? I shouldn't have done the update. they are gone now.

  3. Would this work if I accidentally deleted a sticky note, opened a new one, then tried to look for the first one again using this method?

  4. I just "Hard Resetted" the computer, I shut down the computer, pulled out the PSU plug from the back of the computer, and hit the power button until the memory was clear, about 10-20 seconds and it is sorted

  5. My GOD !! Thank you so much for this very simple fix after spending an hour reading through infinite threads that lead nowehere!!

  6. Omg, thank you so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I finally got my stick note back after hours of searching. Just wish I would have found this video sooner, lmao.

  7. Thank you so much. I got an ssd and needed notes from my main hard drive. I went to my main drive and searched plum. and it showed up and I went to my ssd drive and replaced it. This is the only video I found helpful so thank you!
