Outlook Express 6 - Compacting corrupted folders

  ChrisAnnSen 08:49 14 Jan 2014

I'm still using XP and Outlook Express 6. OE attempted to compact folders a couple of times last week but was unsuccessful. I now realise that failure resulted in 5 of my email folders being emptied. One particular folder is vital. Is there any way to recover the missing emails?

I use Windows Backup to back up the whole of my C drive on to an external drive but when I tried to find the missing emails on my backup I couldn't locate OE email folders - would it be hiding beneath an obscure heading?

It is probably in an OE6 or OES folder.

Try looking in C:\Users\AppData\Local\Microsoft\OES or OE6\
