Hi, After doing a windows re-install I thought that i had backed up all my files, when I came to re-install them my dvd was empty, so my fault,somehow I just assumed that all my files were on the dvd but it was empty. but is there any way of retrieving e-mails, say for the last couple of months, as there are some very important ones there that I thought that I had backed up and now I have lost them....I am using outlook express with win. ex

if you did a complete reinstall including format, they are gone.

It did ask me if I wanted to back-up settings and programs I said yes?....Does the server keep old e-mail?

Messages will only be kept on your email server if you specifically chose that option in your account settings. Make absolutely sure regarding your DVD - run this click here and click Disc

Unfortunately its telling me it's blanl, I can't believe this has happenned, I always, always, back-up but this time????

It's a very very remote possibility but you might get some stuff back with this; click here
Look for files ending .dbx, may not work at all if you did a reformat and reinstall but you have nothing to lose. Save and *install* the program on a different partition
than your main drive, or even on to a USB flash drive and run it from there.
