Lost Emails & Folders in Outlook Express

  BT 09:44 01 Jul 2006

I've just lost all my Folders & Mails in OE.
I clicked on Empty Deleted Items in the Edit menu and everything disappeared. All my folders in Local Folders except for the default ones, have gone. Everything in the Sent items folder is still there.It seems that OE has defaulted to how it is when new. I am using XP and have tried System Restore back to last week but nothing has happened. My wife's version of OE seems OK with all her folders etc still there. Is there any hope of finding them all again?

Search for *.dbx

Had already tried that but have given it another go. Still no joy.

Check the View settings, in case they have changed. View - Current View - All Messages - make sure it's selected.

If you can't find the dbx files, you may need to set the search to look for Hidden and System files
