If you’re like me, a Noteplus user for ~5 years, you’ve been gut-punched twice this week. First when you found out they broke the app you paid for and corrupted your library of notes, and a second time when you found out that they overwrote your backups with their corrupted files.
If you’re using iCloud there is hope! iCloud allows you to restore deleted files for up to 25 or so days (I updated on Sunday and have 21 days left to restore).
- Un-sync the dumpster fire that is the Notes Plus app, then log into iCloud.
- Navigate to settings
- Choose ‘Restore Files’ under the Advanced section
- You should see your files here
My screen appeared to freeze after I started the process and threw an error, however I could see from the iCloud folder on my machine that it was indeed still updating the files, so I’ll leave it alone for a while (I had 1,700+ files to restore).
Be proactive; restore your files. You know these bozos aren’t going to fix the problem for you.
