Got most of the /home  moved over from the earlier system and was able to find what appears to be the notes in /home/share/local/notes but moving it from the old drive, nothing I can do makes KNotes recognize  the collection. I did a search  here  with no results also over at the KDE forum.  Any suggestins appreciated. Many kind thanks.

Wrap your system info like this:

Probably are stored as MariaDB database. If you know database name and user you can export your database with this command:

mysqldump -u username -p database_name > data-dump.sql

and import with:

mysql -u username -p new_database < data-dump.sql

That path looks weird to me. It should be $HOME/.local/share/notes


Hey YoungFellow thanks for the tip. Will do next time.

Tomek Will give this a try and report back.

freggel.doe you are correct the path I posted was missing details. Thanks.

Thanks to all of you for the kindness and interest. Even though I allowed desktop notifications from this forum, didnt get tem in notifications. Ah well an excuse to look at the forum to see whats going on.
Again thanks to you all.
