I recently wiped (after somewhat backing up) my LG G Stylo (metroPCS version, MS631).  I was able to get some, maybe most of my QuickMemo+ data back yesterday, but now I can't get anything.  I really need this data.  I've got files all over the place, both on phone and Win7 PC.  Help!

If you have backup, i.e. sync your notes to google drive, you will be able to restore.

I'll review comments closer tomorrow, but my string suspicion is that I have no Google backup.  Viva Snowden!  (Privacy fan.)

Re ID: 41736080:  I  HIGHLY doubt that I have such a backup.  I'm into privacy, so if I saw a setting that let me avoid backing up my personal notes (e.g. QuickMemo+ data) to the cloud, I would have opted out.  My phone is in pieces right now, but in a couple of hours, I'll follow the instructions of...

Hi all! It works I mean sync works. I tested this program like this:
1.Typed information on QuickMemo
2.In QuikcMemo signed into my gmail account
3.Pressed sync button.
4.Signed out of my gmail account
3.Deleted all information in QuickMemo (saved them for insurance to another document)
4. In QuikcMemo signed into my gmail account again.
5.Pressed sync button. And get back my information to QuickMemo


...and I'll try to get my data back, but I doubt it will work.

When I did backups, it was always to the internal memory or to the SD card.

Thanks for the idea, though.

Here's the answer I'm looking for, at least the form of the answer I'm looking for:

"Whenever you execute an Export command, QuickMemo+ saves a bunch of files, calling them xyz-year-month-date-time, and it putst them in a folder either in the SD card with a path \abc\def\ghi\ or in the internal memory with a path of \stu\vwx\yza\."

I already know that it's way more complicated that this; some 'files' are really multiple files, something like one for the screenshot, one for the pen notes, and one for god knows what.  Photo-based notes (PNGs) are even more complicated, or at least different.

To continue my fantasy answer:

"To import the data back into a phone that's been wiped, just put the files into the folder \jkl\mno\pqr\ (if importing from internal memory) or into the folder \1st\2vw\3yz\ (if importing from the SD card.  Then, just open QuickMemo+ and execute the Import command."

Total fantasy, right?

Is there a 3rd party program that might let me do something like this?  Is there even a manual way I can go through thousands of notes and fix this myself?


Thanks, all.

But if you have wiped your phone. So, there is nothing you can sync or export.

Have you do an export to external mciro SD card before you do the swipe?

I magically got some (all?) of my data back, so I'm closing out the question as moot.
