    You can recover it, but only if you have a backup that contains that note. You have to restore from that backup and that will restore everything that was in that backup to the iPad. If the backup is one week old - you will be returning the iPad to what it had on it one week ago.

    If you have not backup it to iCloud and still want to recover the deleted note, you can use a third-party tool. A tool which could recover deleted notes from iTunes backup of your iPad 2.  Take Wondershare Dr.Fone as an option, you can even review the found notes on iTunes backup so as to check whether they are what you want to recover.

    I accidentally pushed a button and my whole note page disappeared. I went into my email and found something that was called "MY MAIL."  In that mailbox was everything I had ever written to any of the notes I had made.  I just found the oldest one for the page I wanted and copied it and pasted it into the original lost pad page.   It surprised me to find every entry I had made for the last 3 months.

    If you backup with iTunes and you restored from the backup and the notes were gone, then there is no where to retrieve them from unless you have another backup that contains those notes.

    Launch iTunes on the computer and go to iTunes>Preferences>Devices. You will see a window with all of your backups listed in it.

    If you see a recent backup that you are certain contains the notes that you need, recover deleted notes from that backup.

    I think the suggestions might be of use to you.

    The fact is there might be another way to recover your lost iPad 2 notes files via iTunes on your Mac machine. This Mac iPad Note Recovery is able to extract & restore iTunes backup files for your lost iPad 2 data. Not too many Mac users know that each time you sync data between your iDevice (iPhone, iPod, iPad) and iTunes, all previous records will be backed up by iTunes automatically and saved as (.sqlitedb) files.

    You can see this guide to recover Deleted Notes on iPad

    Hope this helps take your stress out.

    Best regards.

    You can recover deleted notes from iPhone since the last synchronization with iTunes. In order to recover deleted notes, run through the following 4 easy steps:

     

    1. Connect iPhone to computer with a USB cord. Once connected, do not allow your phone to automatically sync with iTunes. If the phone is automatically synced, you will no longer be able to recover deleted iPhone notes.

     

    2. Connect iPhone to iTunes and Back up by selecting Preferences > Backup from iTunes, or right-click on your iPhone and choose a backup.

     

    3. Restore iPhone by selecting Restore. You will find this tab under Preferences. Remember, once restore your iPhone, it will be completely erased once the new firmware is installed. So, make sure you have successfully created back up.

     

    4. Restore your iPhone from the back up you created on step 2. This will allow you to restore any data you have backed up, including the "deleted" notes.

     

    Just have a try.
