Hi there,
 
I've been using an extension called "Infinite Dashboard", this extension had a simple "Notes" feature that I used a lot. 
 
Recently Microsoft banned this extension with the following message "This extension contains malware.".
 
I'm wondering if it's somehow possible to recover my notes. Is the data from an extension saved locally ?
 
I found the extension files via C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\Default\Extensions\heejkjoaplbcilfmjcnkljgjcpefmoch\3.8.2_0 -- but can't seem to find anywhere where my notes could have been saved to. Is there anywhere else my notes could have potentially been saved to? 
 
Cheers!

Hi,
type in the address bar: edge://version/
find your "profile path"
there are couple of folders related to extensions, depending on how that extension was working, it could be still there, either as plain text or encrypted file
