using outlook express 6 and windows xp

I tried to make back up copy of my messages into a new folder in my documents. The imported file showed an error message that the file transfer had failed and suggested I tried again, deleted the file in my docs and went back to outlook express , no messages , no folders only the address book.
Now in deep trouble with my better half.
Have these gone forever or is there some place the may still be lurking on the hard drive ?

Do a system restore to a date before you tried to back up.
