Backup, restore and move sticky notes using a Windows sticky notes alternative software

We often store important information in our sticky notes. Losing the data due to any reason say upgrade or while trying to import from other software is thus a significant threat. What is required is a secure method to back up the data and safely restore it anytime. And what about moving them to another system? This is an important feature too.

With the recent updates in Windows sticky notes, we surely are happy with the new sync feature and dark theme. It will make our experience better for sure. But taking backups and restoring is still tedious and time-consuming.

We therefore present to you an alternative software, Notezilla which will take multiple backups for you and restore all your sticky notes back from the cloud.
