  • (2022-03-22) Richard Cunningham: It looks like the previous bug complaints seen in the previous threads have been fixed in release 1.7. Thank you, Andrey, for developing and polishing the program. It worked fine and produced a very nice set of text files containing the Yahoo Notes. Best regards, Rich C
  • (2022-02-27) Backup Account: Works great! Just installed it, because I don't want to lose my old notes. I feel much better having a local copy of my notes now, just in case.
  • (2021-09-23) Diana Wells: Thank you so much! This is lifesaver for us ancient Yahoo users.
  • (2021-07-02) Orlando Selenu: I'm sorry, but it's not working to me: Exception: TypeError: Cannot read property 'split' of undefined ... /scripts/backup.js:13:37
  • (2019-01-31) Suresh kollipara: Excellent Tool...was able to export all my notes as txt to be able to quickly edit using google docs.
  • (2017-11-20) Erik Karr: Finally started working for me after the last update!
  • (2017-11-18) Cho Kule: Don't see any evidence the app is working after choosing "TXT Backup" or "JSON Backup." Don't see any indication of the zip file that is supposedly being produced - not in the Chrome Downloads folder; not in the PC Downloads folder. Where is it? Is it doing anything? If so, where is the result?
  • (2017-08-22) Kathryn Tyne: Thank you! I've wanted to move my notepad for ages, and now I've got a straightforward text copy that I can use on my computer or save to Google Drive.
  • (2017-07-01) Ger Ball: I cannot believe I didn't do this before!!! Super useful extension. It will create a zip file, with folders and notes inside. Excellent.
  • (2017-06-30) Brian Cascarano: Worked like a charm. Was not slow at all.
  • (2017-03-04) Cynthia Watkins: So glad I found this!! You never know when Yahoo is going to stop supporting Notepad. Having a way to export my Notes is a huge comfort. This extension works exactly as as described!! Thank you!!
  • (2016-11-11) Richard Elkins: Excellent. Does exactly what I needed. I don't care if it is as another reviewer says "slow"; take your time! Yahoo could have easily provided this straight-forward JSON/extract function themselves. Phooey on Yahoo! Andrey, thank you for the backup.js file and others. Nice starter kit for other projects and good tutorial.
  • (2016-04-19) Mark Morgan: Great. Worked exactly as advertised and extracted my notes form the deprecated Yahoo! Notepad as text files allowing me to import them to EverNote or OneNote at my leisure.
  • (2016-03-24) Joe Brazinski: Not bad, but slow AF.

    Exception: TypeError: Cabbit read property 'split' of undefined at chrome-extension://infhghdlmdafcphjeljeakjgiojhjig/scripts/backup.js13:37 please fix so I can move away from Yahoo before they closedown Notepad Thanks
  • (2021-03-17, v:1.6) Alex Encino: Recent notepad UI update may have broken the extension
    Looks like Yahoo updated the CSS to notepad - new fonts and slightly different style. And looks like this broke the extension. On the JSON backup it fails with these popup messages: Sorry, something went wrong. Please send the body of the following exception to the developer. Exception: TypeError: Cannot read property 'split' of undefined With the Text backup it fails with this: Exception: TypeError: Cannot read property 'split' of undefined at chrome-extension:/..../scripts/backup.js:13:37
  • (2020-10-21, v:1.6) José Alberto: extension not working
    not back up here... it starts but no finishes at txt or json and folder emty too win 7 cent browser (a chromiun brwser) screenshot: https://imgbox.com/IQypquIC
  • (2019-01-09, v:1.2) JSON option has a bug.
    The JSON option is great. Excellent for shuffling the notes into another DB. There's a bug though with the 'Full Folder' versions of the archive result set - it neglects to escape quote characters. For example it has: {"description": "They saw "Spider-man""} it should be: {"description": "They saw \"Spider-man\""} The individual json "Notes" do properly escape the quotes, so there's a work-around.
  • (2017-06-02, v:1.1) Steve Cubberly: backup file location
    i loved this extension when i used it before, but i can't seem to remember where to find the back zip file. where is the backup saved? thanks
  • (2017-01-30, v:1.0) J S: Preserve JSON format
    I'd like to suggest an option to preserve the notes in JSON format.
  • (2016-08-26, v:1.0) Mary Pohlmann: Can't tell if it works or not
    I understand it may take a while to make the backup zip file of my Yahoo Notepad, but I can't tell if it is doing anything. Where would the backup file go? I see nothing in my Downloads folder. I am using a MacBook Air and Chrome as my browser.
