If you love to note things in Windows 7 using the integrated  tool, i.e. Sticky Notes, then you should need to back-up/sync your notes to the internet. You will be happy like me! I would never be afraid to lose my notes again since I can access it any where as long as I have the access to the Internet ^_^!

In brief

Here’s just 3 steps to get it:

  1. Know where your notes is stored on your computer – it’s in here “%AppData%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt”
  2. Get a “magic” dropbox folder – so as you will be able to have a free storage folder on the Internet.
  3. Make some effort to have your dropbox folder do the syncing for you.

Details

You need:

  1. Symbolic link (recommend Link Shell Extension)
  2. Dropbox
  3. The location of the “data” of the notes i.e. in %AppData%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt and using symbolic link (referenced from source)

How to sync the notes:

  1. Go to the notes data file and create a symbolic link
  2. Save the symbolic link in your dropbox folder
  3. Done.

Hope that helps!
