I have no idea what subject to use because I am lost...LOL Here is the scoop.

I was using Nero Burning software and I was trying to create a cd. I had a folder on my desktop with different subfolders in it labeling my different hotmail accounts. I wanted to back them up and so I dragged and dropped them into Nero and when I tried to burn the cd I kept getting a message about the Joliet name being too long or whatever. Not wanting to mess with it at that time I saved the compilation to a file and didn't do anything for a few days. No I go in to try and open that saved file, it says my path that was to my emails could not be found and asks if I was to remove them from my compilation. I said no and I was able to burn a cd, BUT as it looks like all my .eml files for my mail are there, I open them up to a blank page. I look at the size of the file and they look like they should have some meat to them...anywhere from 1-75kb, but when I open the 75kb it is blank. I am thinking I may have lost all my email, but hopefully someone here can just tell my what I did wrong...I think I had moved all my emails to the Nero program because I have tried to do a undelete and it showed nothing.

I hope this made some kind of sense....LOL

Thanks you!
Rob

Hiya

Do you still have the original subfolders on your desktop?

Am I right in thinking that its the emails in the folders that you're having trouble opening, not on your disk?

Rightclick on one of the files, and choose Properties. What does it say the extension is?

Regards

If you saved the compilation as a nero compilation then the original folders can't be moved or it won't find them. Saving a compilation in nero though doesn't move the original files into nero, it just holds shortcuts to them. Are they still in the original place on your computer?
That joilet message just means that one or more (it would have said) of your e-mail files had a name, or path that exceeded the number of characters allowed. If it was just a single e-mail, just rename it, if it was an e-mail within a folder, within a folder,within a folder etc etc, then the names of the folders form part of the number of characters allowed too.
You can turn this off within nero to allow names over this current length.

Thank you guys. That is what I was just figuring out. It only is a place holder (shortcut) to the original files.....I have NO idea what happened to the original files, but I did use another undelete program and retrieved what I could....but only have of those have anything in them.

Thank you for your help!
