lost windows live folder

  sputnick 18:46 01 Jun 2010

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to recover a folder from Windows live mail.
My Granson had logged onto my PC and accessed his Hotmail account but when I tried to log in to my own account there was no Inbox or my saved folder.
I added my mail account again but have lost the folder with saved info in it.
My contacts folder was still intact though.

The normal folders are still there such as Inbox, sent, deleted etc but not the one that I added.
