Accidently cut information from notes.

Found file under NotesV2.storedata and was able to search this from terminal to see that it contained some of my notes.  How to get these notes back?

    Had to install xcode on mac. Tried installing Data Recovery Free with no luck.


    Ended up doing this from terminal window, after searching all my personal files for matching strings:


    cp ./Library/Containers/com.apple.Notes/Data/Library/Notes/NotesV2.storedata  temp2.txt

    cp ./Library/Containers/com.apple.Notes/Data/Library/Notes/NotesV2.storedata-wal temp.txt


    $ strings temp2.txt |open -f


    Above command got unicode looking stuff to text editor.  I saved it as a unicode file, renamed it with .html extension, copied it and saved to word, and then manually edited out the junk.
