O/Express has deleted mail, can it be recovered?

  camilla11 11:14 22 Jun 2010

My father has lost all emails received between April 19 and today. Up to that date are still all there. All the mail in his 'sent' box has been deleted.
One thing I know is that OE compressed the files this morning, and he emptied the bin.
Have tried system restore but that didn't work. Can they be recovered?
Any help will be appreciated.

In the first instance you need to see if the files are still on the system.
The instructions at click here may help in recovering the files if they are corrupted rather than lost.

System restore doesn't recover data. "he emptied the bin" which one? If he deleted them then they may well be completely lost.

It will not help now but if it useful to backup OE data click here.

How many emails does he have in his Inbox? If too many then they may well begin to disappear, and will only reappear when some are deleted.

Compressing the files won't delete them - provided you do nothing else on the computer while it is taking place.
