In short my Outlook Express has corrupted losing me virtually all my Folders and Emails.
I don't know for sure but I think this was caused by the normal "compacting" process.
I have tried every obvious way of retrieving the files as they still appear to be on the computer. Owner/Local Settings/App.Data/Identities/xxxxxx/Microsoft/OutlookExpress.
I have also tried system restore with no success.
I have tried downloading various programmes that say they can restore O.E.6 but either can't understand them or they don't work.
O.E. 6 is still working normally as far as I can make out.
Does anyone have a simple dummies guide to getting these files back please.
Thanks for reading and in advance for any help. Please be gentle with the techy stuff, I'm old and ignorant :)
