Where Sticky Notes are Stored

Microsoft added Sticky Notes with Vista, and changed them entirely with Windows 7. In Vista, you can write longhand sticky notes with a mouse or pointer, or record them with a microphone, but you can't actually type them with a keyboard. Windows 7 does it the other way around. But both versions save the notes in a file called StickyNotes.snt, located in the C:\Users\login\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Sticky Notes folder. (When I write login, I mean the name you use to log into Windows.) So if you make a lot of notes, you should make sure that your backup routine includes that folder.

Running out of space on Gmail? Get It Back in 5 minutes

Learn how to reclaim lost space by deleting all the space hogging file attachments from Gmail in 5 minutes. While Google does offer around 7.5 GB of free storage space on Gmail, you can quickly exhaust that limit if you are not regular about deleting email messages that include large attachments. Why Clear Space in your Gmail Account When you exhaust the allocated storage limit on your Gmail account, you won’t be able to compose and send new emails from Gmail unless you clear out some space by deleting old mails. Going forward, all incoming messages will also get returned to the sender thus breaking your contact with the outside world. Never Exceed your Mail Quota Again Once you run out of storage space on Gmail, there are two options – either purchase storage (at around $20 per 10 GB) or reclaim space on the Gmail hard drive by deleting large (and useless) emails.
