    Hello, I religiously use the Notes app for quick note taking and transfer them onto an online doc/book when I have the time. I set my phone down after using Notes and worked on my laptop, and picked it up again to see 0 iCloud Notes and 4 deleted notes - the 10 or so on my 5S weren't there, but the Note I deleted two hours prior was. I've restarted my phone once but no change.

    I have a 5S running on iOS 9.3.5 (I can't update because of a storage issue). I have 0 storage available which I believe is a glitch, because I deleted an app yesterday and the storage amount briefly changed before I saw 0 bytes again after a refresh.

    No emails are connected to my phone other than my iCloud and Notes backup is on. I have plenty of iCloud space too. I had a mix of iCloud and "On My iPhone" notes but all of them are gone. Does my 5S really go for my Notes first when it senses I have 0 storage left? I've had 0 for a while anyway. I really want to understand why this happens, and if it's possible to retrieve them in any way. Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: I should also mention that I don't backup my info on iTunes, only manually to my laptop, so this has nothing to do with a recent iTunes backup or anything. I have recently switched to a new iCloud account, but these notes were made on that account or on my 5S, I don't think that would affect my disappearing note problem.

    Your notes sync with iCloud if it's iCloud Notes. They don't back up to iCloud as photos would. Did you try going to settings > iCloud > Notes> Toggle Notes off> then toggle back on?
