So I had foolishly kept my metamask passphrase only on StickyNotes. This meant when my computer crashed, I had to reinstall all my programs, but all my files remained. For some reason my stickynotes program updated and my previous stickynotes disappeared from the program. I had an older version of the notes but these did not contain the pass phrase.
My question is where I should look for the metamask file? Since my browsers were reinstalled, I cant find any metamask related files under chrome extensions in the appdata/local folders. I followed the advice here:Where does metamask store the wallet seed? (file path) But my 0003 file was almost empty due to the reinstallation of chrome and the removal of any extensions I had.
Is there anything else I can try? Either to recover the stickynotes files somehow or find a metamask file? I have the password but dont know where to look for a pass phrase.
