So I have read everything pertinent about recovering Stickies from the very persnickety Time Machine a la Lion. I completely understand going to the latest backup>Users>username>StickiesDatabase. Here's my problem--in spite of the fact that my computer has a name and I have a login setup, there is no user name in my Time Machine backup. When I click on Users, I have two choices: setup and Shared. My actual user name doesn't appear anywhere. So how on earth do I find my Stickies?! I need to recover only that file for a different computer. Possible additional problem--the other computer is running Snow Leopard. Is there help for my dilemma?


Thanks, Apple community!
