I am dealing with a headache of a problem with file history back up...anyways i manually put my StickyNotes.snt file from my back up to appdata>roaming>microsoft>stickynotes (which i believe ive done in the past no problem. But now when i try to open sticky notes after that i get this message "Not able to launch Sticky Notes. Issue with accessing the file.(Quit)" If i open my back up in notepad I can see notes so I know its there. I believe its 3 sticky notes worth of data. Ive already tried sfc /scannow but no luck. Any ideas? Thanks again!

Hello Carlos,

Sounds like a permissions issue.

Double check the StickyNotes.snt file in the %AppData%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes
location to make sure that you have ownership of it, and that permissions are set to allow you "Full control".

Take Ownership of file

Permissions - Allow or Deny Users and Groups

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Odd, it's currently working just fine for me in Windows 8.1.

Is the file named exactly StickyNotes.snt?

You might check to see if the .snt file may be blocked. If so, unblock it.

I dont see the option to unblock it in properties. Im just going to call this one a corrupted file even though i can still access the data if i open the file in notepad. sticky notes work fine until i try to replace the file with my back up...ill just recreate them all and copy and paste my data.

hi
i have problem in recovering snt.

in the location there was snt file i renamed it to some other name. i copied another snt file and launched sticky notes. but sticky notes will only display the notes in my file which was renamed.

there are notes in the file that i want to recover (i can see its contents if i open it with notepad) but i am unable to open it with stickynotes.

should i delete sticky notes as shown in step 1 ? is it the reason ?

Hello Plumpf,

Yep, that would be the reason. Just be sure to back them up first if you like.

Deleted sticky notes return with PC startup

How can I permanently delete my sticky notes? Every time I re-start my Windows 7 Pro PC, all deleted sticky notes reappear...even from several weeks ago!

Anything better than 7's Sticky Notes?
Do you guys know any program better than Windows 7's Sticky Notes? The StickyNote 9.0 of Tenebril was the first one that caught my eye. It has some realistic 3D stuff and all, but then I have to spend some cash for it. If you guys know any freewares, that would be great.
