If your computer crashes, then in some rare cases it can cause corruption to the notes registry. To recover lost notes, please open "Documents and Settings" folder, then a folder representing your Windows user name. From that folder, open "Application Data", "TK8 Software", "TK8 EasyNotes" folder, and delete the file named "Handle". After that, you should be able to display all your notes again.


From: http://www.tk8.com/easynotes/faq.asp

I don't know that this will work. But it's all I could find.
Good luck.

i'm using vista... anddd, i've never come across a 'Documents and Settings' folder... And yes I've searched for hidden folders x]

But that doesn't sound like it could fix my problem anyway... I am, at the moment, backing up my 1Tb HD onto an external 1Tb HD... I can't get onto Vista, at all... fullstop, my notes aren't corrupt, they're fine, it's just that i can't GET to them... Simply because i can't boot from the Vista HD, if i could do that, i could copy the notes to a TXT, and back them up, but i can't... I have full access to the vista PC's HD, so i'm just HOPING that somewhere within the HD is a file, or something, that has everything that i've written on these 'sticky notes' ... so i can get the info back, that's all i need ><

Just the text from all 9-10 Sticky notes... there is NO way of getting back onto vista... HAS to be done through the HD, getting the notes THAT way somehow, and surely the notes MUST save somewhere on the HD, hopefully in a form of which i can easily read, and copy.

But, well... all i can do now is hope...
Thanks for your help anyway, and i'm soo sorry if i misunderstood.
Also sorry for the way i type, my messages, awful, sorry.

Thanks anywayyyy...
If someone else knows where to find the text written onto these notes,
PLEASE... DO TELL ;D

Thanksss everyoneee

EDIT: And I don't THINK my 'sticky notes' were 'TK8 Easy notes' ... not totally sure, but thanks for the help anyway...
This was the sticky notes gadget that came with windows vista ultimate.
