Missing e-mails in windows live mail

  Sapins 08:15 17 Apr 12

I was attempting to separate a folder from within another folder when all the e-mails in the folder I was moving disappeared, the title of the folder is still there but no e-mails. Can I retrieve them and if so how?

I don't suppose a system restore would fix it.

Or go to Windows Live essentials in ad remove and click uninstall/repair.it will give you a choice of what you want to repair or remove click on windows live mail and choose repair.

Now that may bring them back or it might not.So best waiting for other solutions first.

Hi buteman,

I have checked and Systen Restore will not bring e-mails back, I'll wait for other replies,thanks for your help,

Much depends on how you tried to 'separate' the folders. You could search through your other e-mails (especially in the folder you were removing them from) to see if they have become detached, look in the recycle bin or try recovery software.

Just found this, it may be your answer.

I assume that you have looked in the deleted folder.

Hello all,

I have looked in every folder, done a search and checked the recycle bin, no luck. I have even looked through every folder I could find, still no luck, I might try your link johndrew, will let you know if I do.

If you allow showing hidden files and folders then try C:- users- your name- AppData and in the AppData window, in the top right search box, type .eml.
