Hello Macnab,

The tutorial below can help show you how to backup and restore Sticky Notes. You will be able to back them up, and then restore them on the other drive.

Thanks. The answer in my case (seeing as I can't use the Start Menu on the old drive) is
users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes.

I should have been able to work that one out.

Sticky Notes
Recently updated from Vista to 7 on 2 machines (both Lenovo tablet PC's). I had several pre-existing sticky notes and use the program often. When I try to launch sticky notes in 7, I get a "corrupt metadata" error message. Same thing on both machines. Need suggestions for a fix. Thanks.
