Emails vanished from Windows Live Mail

I have been successfully using a program called Hard Drive Powerwash but after using it a couple of days ago I found all my folders in Windows Live Mail are empty !! The Powerwash program moves unwanted stuff to the Recycle Bin so I looked there and no emails. I have saved copies of most emails but WLM claims there are no emails in those folders - HELP please !!

Have you tried going to the original e-mail sites and logging on to see if they are still on there.

The setting may have been changed and it is hiding all read emails.

If so then: View, Current view, select Show all messages

I finally found a way to return my emails to WLM. I discovered I had two sets of folders under user/microsoft/windows live mail and I had been copying my saved messages into the wrong one !! All the messages are now showing as unread and none are in the separate folders I had created but I can see them and, most importantly, can see the subjects so it will just take a while to re-organise !!
