Win XP Home Disk Check Stops Netscape7 mail

Can some kind person advise on how I can get my Netscape 7 'mail' working again ie linking to the net and my email provider. A Blue Screen disk check gave the message below. I can still connect to the internet and my virgin.net isp/email provider, but since XP did some 'truncating' I can't use my Netscape/Mozilla browser's mail to connect, collect, store or send emails - its dead. I've spent a whole day and two nights searching the website for a clue on how to get things back to normal - but no joy. Thank you.

The type of the file system is FAT32.

One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue.Windows will now check the disk.

Look for a folder called FOUND0001 (or similar) your files might be in there

Thank you Yoda Knight,

I think I have now found where my files/folders are for my Netscape Mail. I only have to work out how to put the correct path in the preference,Mail& Newsgroups - Mail Start Page 'location'pathway. I think all my data is lying on my hard drive but mail cannot get the directions to it from me since blue screen went in there truncating.

Why not ether reload Netscape or do a System restore to before the Disc check

Thank you Woodchip,

I tried the restore approach first but this didn't work. Failing coming to some way of directing Netscape mail to the virgin.net email service I think staring again will be my only option. Ive got to get out of 'playgroup' level on this topic and save my email data. Understanding is coming together but very slowly.

Dear Yoda Knight and Woodchip.

Re-installed Netscape 7.0. I have now found out why my Netscape mail could not link to my ISP and email provider. Needed some adjustment to entered title of 'in' and 'outgoing' mail server.

Still can't find my mail addressbook though so still on the hunt.

Thanks for your comments. Made me feel that I wasn't sat here on my own with not enough knowledge to move forward or even dabble.

Regards,

Nottingham
