Hello,

The other day I compacted my OE when prompt but of course I got the blue screen that interupted it which meant most of my folders/messages was missing when I opened it BUT I did manage to restore 3 or 4 of my folders recyle bin by replacing the *bak extension to *dbx in the stored folder, but the problem is the remainder of the ones WON'T restore for some reason and am not sure why when the rest did??? What OE keeps doing is creatin aa new folder the to one am trying to restore from the *bak , can someone tell me how I managed to restore some of the folders YET the rest WON'T???

Thanks in advance,
Francie

Because some of the files were corrupt/didn't finish being compacted while others did.

The only way to get it back right now is data recovery software, and it's probably already too late for that considering how you've already used your computer after the incident.

Right, yes but what I mean is out of all of the folders/messages I lost I took them from the recyle bin and I managed to restore 3 or 4 back into the stored folder and those messages appeared back in OE but the rest I tried doing (if am doing it right) never worked?

Try dragging them in or clicking File, Import, or something along those lines. Are all the .dbx files in the same folder?
