Lots of posts on lost stickies
« Thread started on: Apr 11th, 2014, 06:28am »
I can add mine to the list. All my Sleeping and Recurring stickies were gone Closed had a bunch of stickies with long number names but no data in them. My Network was off as well as friends list gone. I was backed up so i was able to recover. But the question is "Whats going on"? In all the years I have been using stickies, it's never happened before Mu OS in Win8.1 Just installed 2 weeks ago.

If I knew for sure what happened, I'd tell you...
If you've used the app for years, you'll certainly know it's not a common problem, although some systems do seem to suffer from it more than others.
My best guess is that it's AV "interfering" with Stickies writing its data file, probably as the computer shuts down, but that is a guess, as the problem has never shown up here.
To try to solve this one and for all, v8 of Stickies dramatically reduces the amount of disk activity the app performs, meaning that not only will data loss problems be less likely, but that they'll have less impact if they do occur.
In the meanwhile, you could try excluding your Stickies data directory from being virus scanned?
