    Help ! All of my Outlook Express messages were deleted by - i don't know what happened. I was just un-installing cybersitter and cyberpatrol trial version and had expired and next time I open my mail, they're gone.
    I tried system restore but my pc can't restore my setting to a previous date.
    Pls. help. What can I do to recover it?
    Thanks a lot...

    Try download Restoration

    http://hccweb1.bai.ne.jp/~hcj58401/

    its a freeware to undelete files
    find OE datafiles i.e.

    folder.dbx
    inbox.dbx
    outbox.dbx
    Sent Items.dbx
    and other folder you might remember

    If you have not install any new program or write anything into the harddisk, you might recover those files without any problem.

    good luck.

    [edit]
    before you do the above, its a good idea to check whether the files are still exist in OE store folder.
    to find OE store folder:
    In OE : Tools>Options>click Maintenance tab>click Store Folder

    If they still there just do File>Import>messages
    [end edit]
