    (1) By accident my user profile (C:\Documents and settings\<username>) got deleted.
    (2) I found it in Recycle bin and "restored" it.
    (3) However, the "restore" failed to include the normally hidden folder
    C:\Documents and settings\<username>\LocalSettings and all of its contents!

    (4) As a consequence, because LocalSettings includes ApplicationData\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.pst, I lost all of my emails, address book etc.

    We have tried various recover programs including a deep scan of the directory of the hard disk by have failed totally to find the lost folder and its contents.

    Does anyone have any idea what happened and suggestions for additional things to try?
