Symlink for Sticky Notes PLUM.SQLITE file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everyone, 

    I'm attempting to change the location for where Sticky Notes (build 1709) saves it's data file. I've been able to achieve this on the Local drive but not across a network share. I've check that permissions are set and that the net share is reachable.

    When done locally, Sticky Notes opens just fine after moving the "plum.sqlite" file and creating a symlink back to where the file was previously located. When done to a network share Sticky Notes will crash when attempting to open with no pop-up error. I've check the eventvwr and this is the error it logged:

    Faulting application name: Microsoft.Notes.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5aba81d8
    Faulting module name: Windows.UI.Xaml.dll, version: 10.0.16299.248, time stamp: 0xc27fa098
    Exception code: 0xc000027b
    Fault offset: 0x00000000004e5629
    Faulting process id: 0x46f8
    Faulting application start time: 0x01d3cffa45a11226
    Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_2.1.18.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\Microsoft.Notes.exe
    Faulting module path: C:\Windows\System32\Windows.UI.Xaml.dll
    Report Id: ef308482-0687-44f7-a528-f416c0739d7e
    Faulting package full name: Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_2.1.18.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe
    Faulting package-relative application ID: App

    I'm not sure where the issue may lie here but just for reference here's the script I put together for creating the symlink and shared folder:

    $path = "$env:USERPROFILE\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\"
    $path1 = "P:\Sticky_Notes\"
    If(!(test-path $path1))
          New-Item -ItemType Directory -Force -Path $path1
    $from = $path
    $to = $path1
    if(!(Test-Path $to))
        New-Item -Path $to -ItemType Directory -PathType Container -Force | Out-Null
    Move-Item $from $to
    New-Item -Path $path -ItemType SymbolicLink -Value P:\Sticky_Notes\LocalState

    The script completes successfully, but sticky notes wont open.

    I know that in prior versions of Sticky notes (not the Metro Style App) this was possible by doing the same process with the ".snt" file. Any help here would be highly appreciated.
