Outlook Express problem

  Hammersmith 18:56 05 Sep 2007

Stupidly I used detect and repair to try and get rid of an annoying error message relating to amemeo backup programme which no longer works.

Unfortunately Outlook no longer brings up any of my old emails of contacts.

Are these lost for good or can I retrieve them from somewhere on the computer and re-instate into Outlook?

Before memeo gave up the ghost, I religiously backed up via memeo onto my network storage and I know that files are on that but I dont know how to access them.

Can someone please help this idiot? Many thanks.

Try system restore first.
Click on Programs then accessories then system tools then system restore, then click on"restore my computor to an earlier time"
then select a highlighted date then click next and pc will reboot and restore pc as it was at that date.
good luck

Thanks for responding Kingfisher,

Unfortunately I tried to do that previously but it didnt work either as the computer refused to roll back to the last restore points!

Through trial and error I've managed to access my backup folder now and make a copy of the contact files so all is not lost however Outlook is still playing silly b**gers.

Thanks again.
