Hi blackdogx, Sorry to hear about the Outlook Express issue First thing to try is to perform a search for all your .dbx files Start>Search>All files and folders, and in the white box at the top type in *.dbx then press the Enter key Let us know if you strike gold! Regards paws

Try this, 1 set up a folder on your desktop 2 copy all your .dbx folders/files into it 3 Open Outlook Express File>Import>Messages 4 Highlight Microsoft Outlook Express 6 5 Click on Next 6 If the location of your store folder is highlighted its worth trying that and seeing if it does the trick...when you have finished you will need to close and then reopen Outlook Express. 7 If no joy then at step 6 browse to the location of the new folder you created on your desktop (the one that contains your .dbx files) and then continue with the import.... see if that does the trick. 8 Post back as to how you get on, as there are several more things we can try!

Hi blackdogx,

Can you use the "previous" emails from your last or previous back ups?
Have you run sfc recently?
If so was the disc required?

Ok, I found three solutions for your problem, hope any of these will solve your issue.

- Outlook express also creates backup copies of dbx files in recycle bin. So check your recycle bin.
- Try UnDbx tool from this source - http://code.google.com/p/undbx/ . This utility helps in recovering emails and other Outlook express data.
- If Undbx does not help then try a professional Outlook express recovery software for getting all data back.

Regards

Hi smithgrace

Thanks for your participation here at WTT Forums.

Your contributions appear to be responsive to the posted problems, apparently accurate and helpful.
Thanks for that.

As to the code.google utility which you have recommended, I am moved to add a cautionary note.

Google Apps have historically been developed and contributed openly and without referee oversite.
As a result, a large percent of google apps have historically been found to be unreliable and/or containing track-ware, ad-ware, spyware.

As to this one (undbx) I have no information pro or con. And that troubles me.

I prefer to use applications on my own test-bed machines prior to making recommendations, but obviously no one individual can be familiar with all utilities and applications. Alternatively, researching the reviews of other known and respected authorities who may have commented on the use of an application can be a second-best method of gaining confidence in the use of a utility or application.

I do not find any authoritative reviews of undbx within the first 4 pages (about 100 entries) of search pages related to the utility.
And though it is listed and available at a few popular download sites, there are no editorial reviews available.

Therefore: Use of undbx cannot receive the untested endorsement of WTT Forums.

Readers of this Topic are urged to use their own good judgment, proceed with caution, and take full responsibility for their actions if they decide to use this utility.

Best Regards,

Doug
