Discussed below are some points that will help the users to have a clear idea on the ways to recover and restore lost e-mails in Microsoft Outlook Express:
- Manual method of recovery
- Using data recovery pro software
- Tips to keep in mind
Manual method of recovery
First of all, you are required to enable viewing of hidden files and folders. Then click ‘Documents and Settings’ on C: drive. Click the ‘File’ after locating the name and the booted items and then click ‘Application Data’ in ‘Local Settings’. Since Microsoft Outlook Express stores each mail as an identity, you can find its listing. Each identity file should be checked for all the folders. Note down the number for the identity, close it, and then open Outlook Express. Go to ‘File’ menu and click ‘Import’. The same program with the lost messages can thus be selected and imported.
Using data recovery pro software
Data Recovery Pro software is an efficient tool that can be used to recover the deleted e-mails in Microsoft Outlook Express. This software is capable of locating the deleted e-mail within a short time. The deleted e-mails are instantly retrieved by scanning the system. This software also displays the e-mails that have been deleted. So if the program has been installed on the system, the user can use it to know whether the deleted e-mails can be recovered or not. It can also recover e-mail attachments and partial files.
The recovery of deleted e-mails should be done as soon as possible. The later you recover the deleted e-mail, the more is the chance of having the free disk space reused or over written by the computer. If you accidently delete any e-mail, be careful not to zip the folder by any operation and you should at once exit Outlook Express. Also keep in mind that the deleted files will be removed only by ‘Compact’ feature which is a gradual process. They will still be present inside the 'dbx' file as free space.
