I also would like to know of a way to recover notes from TM. I'm still on Lion, however.
Even when I go into TM and navigate to the Mail program and click on it, I get the separate window that opens up, showing the Mail icon, and a button to "Open Mail" but nothing happens when I click on it.
I'm desperate to find this note... I have no idea when it was deleted off my phone and unfortuantely, I've been syncing my iPhone every day (overwriting back up files for who knows how long). I also hadn't been doing my TM back ups for a while (shame on me) so I may not even have the most recent version of my note but I need to try and find it someway!
Thanks in advance!
