    lost sticky notes after upgrade , now found but unreadable


    Hi, I refreshed my laptop thinking it was sys restore, it went back to win 8, now upgraded back to win 8.1 and sticky notes are gone, I have it now after researching it & going in circles all day ( its weekend so shops are closed) so trying this my self.
    I now have it back but its in .snt file and not readable, how do I get my recovered sticky notes back to readable, even if open in note pad its the same. I tried to open it in wordpad but it said cant open it cos its in use open in another app? is there anyone who can please help me, thank you
