    Did you accidentally delete some notes that are not backed up anywhere else?

    I'm afraid that unless your notes were backed up somewhere, they are lost. There is no trash bin on an iPad where you can go to recover recently deleted items before they're overwritten. In the future you should use something like iCloud to back up important notes and data as these are not saved during a regular backup.

    Theoretically speaking, Apple doesn't provide method to retrieve deleted or lost notes from the device. If you want to recover lost notes, you can free try iFonebox.
