    After making a full scan today, I choosed "disinfect" for my .pst

    file, because I don't wanted to "delete" them. That was a huge

    misunderstanding, since it seems to me, that ad-aware deleted and

    shredded those files, instead of "disinfecting" them.I want to

    recover my .pst outlook files, but I can't, even with Piriform

    Recuva. I miss all my business emails, contacts,
    calendars, acount settings etc. from those files that were at

    those locations:
    C:Users user DocumentsOutlook Filesmyfirstemail.pst
    C:Users user Documents Outlook Files Second Email.pst
    E:Users userDocuments Outlook Filesmythirdemail.pst
    Those huge files are not in the quarantine nor in the wastebin,
    I checked many times, they are realy deleted and shredded. Please

    help me on the recovery of those files or give me at least some

    Hello ktoffersen,

    Welcome to TSG! (y)

    Please see the following (quoted from quietman8 over at BC). :)

    When AdwCleaner is first run to clean adware, it will create a new folder located at C:\AdwCleaner. The AdwCleaner folder contains sub-folders for Backup and Quarantine. Each of these folders contain sub-folders of the exact location (full path) an entry was removed from. In the event you want to restore an item, simply run AdwCleaner again.
    • Click Quarantine manager.
    • A log file of what was removed will open in a new window.
    • Scroll through the list and find the entry you want to restore.
    • Place a check mark in the box next to the entry(s).
    • Click the Restore button.
