After compression, the letters disappeared in the Outlook Ex

#1 Post by JoseMcCallum » 27 Oct 2014, 18:50

In the director's office at the computer as a mail client worth Outlook Express, which has a feature not work with files larger than 2 GB (each folder "Inbox", "Sent", etc. is stored in a separate file), as it offers a filling squeeze base, and it was not bad until he [the director] is pressed "cancel", but once he hit the wrong way, in the end part of the incoming messages for a sufficiently long period rubbed. Found prog Recuva, but did not help. Please advise a normal program that will really work. It does not matter what kind of paid or free. The main thing is that it would help. Or advise some way to solve this problem.

I do not know you've already tried this method or not, but it should help. Recover files from the Recycle Bin. The path will look something like C: \ Documents and Settings\username\LocalSettings\ApplicationData\Identities\{80B6C0B5-5CE8-4FB2-9E00-9E2EAE6FCDFF}\Microsoft\Outlook Express. Before the changes you need to save a copy of the file from the path, just in case.
Run Outlook Express 6, add a folder for example Old incoming transition into a folder although it is empty (for that would base created) and close Outlook Express 6.
But before you start worrying try another search solution in this forum: ... -to-fix-it

Outlook Express overwrites the first 4 bytes every 512 bytes block when you delete mail messages. You can recover deleted mail from DBX files using undbx (open source, but be warned that the attachments in the messages would likely be unreadable and the message text too could be partially unreadable or totally unreadable (parsing error) due to the overwritten bytes. If you are sure you cannot find any backup you could try asking in the Forensic Focus ( forum to see if they know other software that may help you to extract the messages from possible copies of the mails still present in the unallocated data of the partition.
