Recover deleted outlook.pst?

Question: Recover deleted outlook.pst?

(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?

Thanks

I need to recover my all deleted Outlook emails which was inaccessible due to virus attackCan someone tell me about how can i recover deleted emails from Outlook

Answer:Recover deleted Emails from Outlook?

If you didn't make a backup of your outlook.pst file before the virus attack, I can think of no way to recover your emails.You must always make a backup copy of your outlook.pst file at regular intervals so you can recover your emails when disaster strikes (eg you have to re-install Windows, perform a factory recovery, or in case of hard drive failure).

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

Answer:Deleted all my Outlook PST files, I can’t recover them?

Hello ktoffersen,

Welcome to TSG!

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.

I use outlook 2003 with Win XP. I have an extensive calendar set up with hundreds of appointments. A few days back it was misbehaving. I wanted to delete an appointment, and somehow ended up deleting the entire calendar. All that I did was click "delete" in the pull down menu under edit. The calendar disappeared completely.

Now when I left click on Calendar, nothing opens. If I was in mail, the display continues to be mail. In the sidebar, the list of calendars presents, but none of them are the main calendar.

Now here's the strange part. The calendar is still functioning and is synchronizing with my smart phone. And, I've discovered by right clicking on calendar, (which presents the option to open in a new window) and opening in a new window, the calendar is visible. It just isn't visible in my normal Outlook session where I toggle between mail, calendar, contacts and tasks.

Here is another strange thing. After I open the calendar in a new window, the sidebar permits me to toggle between mail, address book, tasks, etc. However as soon as I do that, the calendar no longer is visible and I have to reopen it in a new window again.

I already tried going back to a restore point prior to the problem. It didn't make any difference. Is there a solution so that I can restore my calendar view in Outlook 2003.

Any Microsoft Outlook 2016 experts out there??!!

I recently set up Outlook 2016 to handle my Gmail account. This led to my having all sorts of folders to manage, amongst them 'Sent Items' and 'Sent'. Since I had virtually nothing in the 'Sent Items' folder, I deleted it completely and made 'Sent' my default folder for all the mail sent from my computer. I have since discovered that 'Sent Items' is actually the default Outlook folder for mail that I've sent, while the 'Sent' folder is a legacy of Gmail.

Nothing wrong so far. Except for the fact that I am now trying to set up some rules so that some mail I send goes into particular folders while other mail is simply saved in the 'Sent' folder. If I go into Outlook options, I need to save mail that doesn't go into a specific folder into the 'Sent Items' folder, which no longer exists.

I've tried using Remo software (trial version) to recover the deleted 'Sent Items' folder (and also the 'Deleted Items' folder, which I also deleted!!), but no luck. And running 'repairs' of Microsoft Office via Programs in the Control Panel has similarly yielded no results.

Is it possible to recover or even recreate a deleted folder from Outlook once it has been completely deleted (i.e. is no longer on the computer??

Answer:Outlook 2016 how to recover deleted folder

1) You should normally recover the old pst file from your backup.
2) If you are using gmail and all your messages are still on the server, you can try renaming your pst file so that Outlook cannot find it and then let it create a new one. No guarantees, but it might populate this with the missing messages which you can then move into the old file.

One of our users accidentally deleted an entire public folder (she meant to delete one contact but had the folder highlighted instead of the one contact). When we try to recover that folder by using the "Restore Deleted Items" in Outlook, we receive an error that she does not have permission to do so. Only 4 users had permission for that folder, and we receive that error on all 4 user's computers when we attempt to recover it. I've tried to recover it from my computer (I have administrative rights on our network), but that folder doesn't even appear in the list of available folders to recover. The person that deleted it was owner of that contact folder, so I don't know why she wouldn't have permission to recover it. Anyone have any ideas?

I'm workin on a computer here that has a slew of problems. The HDD is going bad. It's heating up reaaally bad and has a hard rumbling feeling to it when it runs. The owner of the computer is in need of the sub folders of the personal folder.

No backups were made. This is simply a question of "Can I retrieve this deleted folder?"

If not, oh well. But I'm giving it a shot while I have the opportunity available.

EDIT - I just remembered I had a pst file backed up of this person's computer from the last time I worked on it. Funny, isn't it? Trick is, I can't get the pst to work. I even did a scan with Microsoft's pst error checking tool, and the thing checked back 100% file.

I tried importing it both on her computer using Outlook 2003 and my laptop using Outlook 2007. Each one yields the same response. When I import the pst, personal folder appears. But once I hit "finish", personal folder closes... whattttt?? Why does it close when I just tried to import it?

EDIT AGAIN - PST has a blank folder in it.

I absolutely with a passion hate Microsoft.

Answer:Outlook 2003 - Recover deleted personal folder?

Hey Jayce,
You ran outlook before restoring the new .pst didn't you?

If that is the case, outlook simply made a new .pst and is just a little confused about what to do. When this happens to me, i just search for *.pst, delete everything I can find, copy in my backups, and run.

If that doesn't work, repeat until you get to copying them back in, and instead just run outlook. It will complain that it can't find its percious little .pst file and allow you to browse. Assuming the .pst is on a fixed drive (not a cd,) it will allow you to import anything you would like.

I wonder why they didn't fix that in '07??

Let us know if that works

I created a video on my YouTube channel showing how you can recover deleted emails in Outlook 2007. I am pretty sure that the technique demonstrated will work with 2003 or 2010 as well but I've only tested it using Outlook 2007.

This technique will only work if you haven't compacted your PST file since the time you deleted the email you are trying to recover. The basic steps are to back up your PST file, then you use a HEX editor to "damage" the file by overwriting a small section of the PST file. You then use the great utility ScanPST.exe that comes with Microsoft Office to repair the PST file. When you then open the PST file in Outlook, the emails you have deleted since the last time you compacted will be in your inbox. If you have deleted a lot of emails since you last compacted it is probably a good idea to try this with a copy of your active PST file. Then you can just open it in Outlook alongside your main PST and just move the email you want recovered back into your main folder.

Answer:How-to recover deleted emails from Outlook 2007 for free

Thanks for sharing the info and the video.

It might make for a better demo video if you open the PST file in the HEX editor after you delete the e-mails from the PST file.

As it is now, you:
...open the PST file (with all of the test e-mails in it) using the HEX editor
...open the PST file using Outlook
...delete some e-mails
...empty the Deleted Items folder
...close Outlook (which writes to the PST file)
...damage the PST file via the HEX editor
...save the damaged PST file (with all of the test e-mails in it)
...run the SCANPST utility
...repair the PST file
...open the PST file via Outlook with all of the test e-mails in it.

So - it appears that the version of the PST file that you damaged/repaired still had the deleted e-mails in it because that version of the PST file was still in RAM via the Hex editor. I'm not familiar with the HEX editor that you show (I use PSPad). I know that there are some editors that will automatically reload a file that was changed by another app. I could not tell from the video if that is what happened. So I suggest that you not keep the version in RAM (via the editor) that contains all of the test e-mails.

My guess is that you have tested this using something like this order:
...open Outlook
...delete some e-mails
...empty the Deleted Items folder
...close Outlook
...open the PST file using the HEX editor
...damage the PST file via that HEX editor
...save the damaged PST file
...run the SCANPST utility
...repair the PST file

Answer:Recover Deleted Folder Outlook 2010 connect to Exchange

Which version of Exchange are you using? From what I can recall, you might not be able to do this without third-party software. The first try should going into the user's Outlook, clicking on the Deleted Items folder, choose the Folder tab at the top of the screen, and then click on the Recover Deleted Items button. If the folder shows up in there, all well and good. If not, you may have to restore the e-mails and then have the user sort them into the folder again. After all, it was their problem and shouldn't become your crisis.

As an aside: in our organisation we use ShadowProtect for our backups, and also purchased ShadowProtect Granular Recovery for Exchange (GRE) to afford us the possibility of restoring individual e-mails and/or folder structures. This has worked very well indeed, and saved a lot of headaches when users do what they do best ;-)

I have deleted some of my important files by mistake. It is not there in recycle bin as it was cleared by my friend . What I do now? Is there any way to recover it?

Answer:How to recover deleted files?

Hi, first thing is as soon as the files are deleted from the recycle bin their disk space is available to be overwritten. Therefore they may be recoverable, corrupted or unrecoverable.

You can try a program such as Recuva (free)- there are many.
Do not install it on the drive or partition from which you are trying to recover files.

Such programs usually offer two levels of scanning- deep scanning is slow, so specify what to scan carefully.

Obvious lesson: back up.

There are many backup programs at a file level, and then there's the strongly recommended approach of disk imaging.

Disk imaging even allows you to restore Windows if it is unbootable as it was when the image was created- and also to a new hard disk. E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + external storage.

Images also act as a full backup- you can extract files too.

That turned out not to be necessary so now I'm wondering if there is a way to get that data back. The entire folder was deleted - I think Windows said it was too big to put in the bin. I did not do any other work on that drive since.

I tried using some popular recovery programs: Recuva, Undelete plus, restore but they don't seem to get a trace of the files. Instead they display some bizzare files which appear to be from a previous windows instalation. Now I find it unlikely that the entire collection of over 100 hundred files would just dissappear without a trace. So maybe I'm doing something wrong or using the wrong software? I'd appreciate a hand.

edit: if you know about affordable commercial software that would do the job feel free to recommend

I deleted accidentally mi PST file. Installed several recovery programs (Recuva, Recover My Files, Stellar Phoenix Win Data Recovery, Active @ Undeleted, Pandora Recovery) and none of them show the deleted file in the original folder.I even made a new test, deleted an old copy of my PST located in the same folder and run all programs without making any changes in the hard drive and cannot view the PST file in the deleted file list.Both files were deleted with shift+del and the size was 500Mb aprox. Running Win XP.How can this be possible? Is there any way I can recover the deleted file?

Answer:Cannot recover deleted pst file

Johnw its a local copy of .pst or there would be no need for recovery software.Flox15 you should never install software when trying to recover a file. You run the recovery software from a usb or cd boot disk. This prevents the file from being partially or fully overwritten.Another aspect is how much free space do you have? If not much then a deleted file can be overwritten immediately.There is also the issue of a corrupt file table. You run chkdsk /f to correct this.But all of this sounds too late in your situation.Answers are only as good as the information you provide.How to properly post a question: Sorry no tech support via PM's

Hello

Are you working in a Microsoft exchange environment? ie at work!
If not I do not think you can get it back.

If you are then do the following:

Highlight the deleted items folder. Click Tools>recover deleted items. Alist of emails should appear. Find your email and highlight it. Right click and choose restore or click the restore button. It should return to your deleted items folder.

Good luck.

Let me know your outcome please.

Hi,

I've done a stupid stupid stupid thing and lost an important excel spreadsheet that I last used about two weeks ago. I've been having various performance problems (freezes/crashes) and was advised to run "Malwarebytes' anti-malware".

Before I did this, I backed up all my data to a CD-ROM and then deleted the files from my laptop. Then I went ahead and ran the software. The good news: my laptop seems to be behaving itself far better now. The bad news: somehow I seem to have missed this one file when backing up. I've got all my family photos, lots of stuff from work, even old stuff that I'll probably never need again but I thought "What the heck". Yet somehow, I've missed this one spreadsheet. I could kick myself!!

To make matters (probably) worse, I've run CCleaner a couple of times since then, as I was advised that it keeps the laptop clean. I've just looked at some settings there now and it's using "Normal" file deletion as opposed to "Secure", but "Wipe Free Space" is selected. Damn!

I only realised I'd lost the file last night and I have already downloaded some freeware utilities such as "Restoration" and "Undelete Plus", but none of these found the file.

Should I just give up now? Or is there some software that may find a file even after CCleaner has been run.

Grateful for any help.

I can open the import in outlook express and find the path where the deleted items.dbx is but it give me an error because I have outlook express open to do this. I found a help topic that said to rename the file deletedold.dbx and it would restore but that didn't work either. Any help???

Answer:Need to recover deleted.dbx files

I understand what you are saying about finding the location of the deleted items.dbx file itself (within the system). Otherwise I'm struggling a bit to understand your question. Can you clarify what has happened and what you are trying to do please?Reading between the lines it appears that you might have deleted some emails from the Deleted Items box and are trying to recover them - is that right? If so, probably the best chance is to do System Restore to a date before that. There are free programs such as Recuva. If you can get the original old dbx file back (properly identified as such) you would then have to copy it on top of the one that now exists in the system, and the emails at that time would then be present in the OE Deleted Items box. When you rename the file deleted items.dbx Outlook Express will promptly create a new replacement file and therefore an empty Deleted Items box will appear in OE.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

On one of my laptops I recently upgraded from Vista to Windows 7. Usually when I upgrade it automatically creates a Windows.Old folder in my C Drive where I can access all my files from before the upgrade. But this time there was no Windows.Old folder. So I downloaded and ran a file recovery program...it found 0 old deleted files. I ran that same program on a different laptop and it worked fine. So where could the deleted files have went and how can I access them?
 

Answer:Can't Recover Deleted Files

Upgrades do not delete any files. They would be in the same location as they were when you left them.

If you did not upgrade, but installed a fresh copy of 7, the files are most likely underneath the OS and lost. The installation of the OS uses about twice the drive space that the final installation uses, so everything would have been written over.

Hi, does any body outhere no of a free file recovery programme that will allow me to restore my files that have been deleted. For some reason last night most of my files within the my documents folder disappeared leaving just the shell folders. I used to use a programme called 'Restoration' (I think) which allowed me to scan my hard drive and I was able to choose and recover deleted files. The problem was made worse because I had all of my downloaded programmes saved in a folder within the my documents folder which of course contained the restoration programme. I have looked on the net to try and find Restoration but with no luck. Does it still exist or has it changed name as I downloaded it over a year ago. Thank you in advance

Hello,

I accidentally deleted a folder that has many files in my portable drive. They are not in the recycle bin as I set it for immediately deletion. So I purchased a data recovery program online and it found the deleted files. When I restored and opened the files, they were corrupted. Is there a reliable program that can recover the files efficiently? The Internet has so many programs and I don't know which to pick.

Many thanks.

Answer:How do I recover deleted files?

Has anything been copied onto the drive since the deletion? If it has, the locations where the deleted files were may have been overwritten by new files. If this has happened, recovered files will be corrupt, and no recovery software will be able to recover them correctly.

If nothing has been transferred to the drive since the folder was deleted, then it's a disappointment that paid software fails to recover them. Well-regarded recovery programs include Recuva, PcInspector and GetDataBack (paid). Other posters may have other recommendations from their experience.

I need to recover deleted IE history and have scoured all different sources for recovery and im starting to doubt whether or not it is possible.

What I know wont work:

System Restore- The history was deleted between restore points, and the restore points on either side of it being deleted dont have the relevant history

What I've tried:

Index.dat readers. This is what I'm confused about, everywhere I go say this file holds all IE history unless its been altered, but from everything I've actually tried it seems all the index files I can find just hold information I can pretty readily access already.

So I'm willing to try any suggestions, and also if anyone has a little more info on index.dat that would change what I've found out myself it would also be greatly appreciated.

My non-technical brother bought an external hard drive then "synched" that drive to a folder on his internal hard drive that held (of course) all of the pictures of the kids. He claims he then deleted the folder from his internal hard drive and everything was gone from his external hard drive. Nothing in the recycle bin either.

I've never used an external hard drive, so I don't know if any of what he's saying even makes sense, but the bottom line is that he would like to get out of the doghouse and get the pictures back. Does anyone know if this is possible?

I've heard that no file is ever really erased from your hard drive its really just a matter of how much you want to pay to get it back.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I am using Windows 8.1 and wanting to get advice on a utility (either freeware or paid-for version-or even if one exists at all) which has the ability to restore files/folders once they have been deleted from the recycle bin.
I realise that there are oodles of utilities on the web which claim they can restore deleted files, and I have tested a few out; I now am having serious doubts that a restoration tool exists at all.
With every tool I tried out, it asks where the file?s original location was, then after initiating a search some files are found; here?s where things get interesting ? every file which is found already exists on the H/D and hasn?t even been deleted at all.

Answer:recover my deleted photos, help

If the photos were never transferred to the computer and were deleted directly from the memory card, there's absolutely no way you can recover it, not that you've lost it. Sorry. If they were deleted from the hard drive, you could try using a program like Recuva or Restoration (both free) to recover them. But you cannot afford to waste time before you do that. There are a lot of free programs that recover it from the memory card too (maybe Restoration and Recuva do that too), but you need to have the card to do that.

Answer:Recover deleted files

It's possible the filles may still be there. First try to undelete in your recycle bin. If that's a no go, there are a few commercial recovery programs out there. The only way you can possibily undelete files that have already been deleted in the recycle bin is using such a program provided the files have not been overwritten. If you write something to the same disk it doesn't necessarily mean your deleted files have been overwritten.
If a file recovery program doesn't work, they're gone forever.

ALLWAYS back up! :hotbounce

I had a flash drive with .pdf files among others on it. Once I inserted the drive, the compuer would ask me whether or not I wanted to scan the drive because some errors were found. I chose not to scan it. The drive opened fine. But the next time I inserted the drive and chose not to scan it, the drive opened but half the files were gone. To recover the files, I was recommended to use "virtual Lab" recovery software. This program scanned the drive and found some files and saved them into a folder called "Raw Files". Inside of it there are several folders. One of them is of interest to me as it is called Adobe Acrobat Documents There are .pdf files and they probably are the ones I am looking for but when try to open them with the  Adobe Acrobat reader, the message says that they cannot be opened because            "they were either not supported or, damaged, for example, sent in e-mail and incorrectly decoded"My question: is there anything that could be done to bring these files back to life at this point? E.g. re-docode them, so they are decoded correctly?Thanks!

Answer:Would Appreciate Help to Recover Deleted Files

Simple answer is" No" You have already used a software program to recover some files. That may be as much as you can do. In theory, flash drives are supposed to be very reliable. But many users report they fail more often than they shooed.IMHO the best way to store files is on a good  quality eternal drive. Prices vary.

My computer became infected with a virus, infostealer.banpaes that norton 2006 seemed unable to get rid of.

I decided to simply reinstall XP pro, onto my 10gb C partition, while maintaining my files on the other two 50gb partitions (drive is 120gb sata). I'd done this countless times before just to clean out the system from time to time and didn't think too much of it.

When I booted up into XP installer and got to the point where i would need to delete the C partition and reformat it, I didn't notice until too late that somehow my 3 separate partitions now looked like one 120gb partition to the windows installer (something that had never happend before).

Before it fully dawned on me, I deleted my C partition, effectively deleting the entire drive.

Not sure what to do, I made another 10gb partition, installed XP pro, and now am wondering how I can recover the files from my lost 50gb partitions.

Is this possible without having to employ some expensive recovery software or recovery service?

The files lost are not earth shatteringly essential, but quite a few of them are ones I will truly miss.

Any ideas on anything I can do? Or should I just let go and move on?

Thanks

Answer:recover deleted file

Hi,
Have you explored the contents of the Recycle bin?
If it's not there, I find Restoration works well, it's free and free of adware etc:

I hope this does the trick?

Oye. Where to start. I had a problem on my comptuer, so I had to reinstall XP. All is well. I have "roaming profiles" set up on a "server" [really is just my profile on a XP Pro machine w/ a big hard drive]. They are on their own partition. I set my new install machine profile point to the place where it should be. I wanted to use it right away and not wait for it to copy the 12gb of My Documents to my computer at the moment, so I moved them to a different folder. I logged on, and did what I wanted to do. Then I moved My Documents back to the profile folder on the server. Logged off of my computer and logged back on. My Documents is GONE! Apparently, since when I logged on there wasn't a My Documents, and when I logged off, it was there, Windows thought it would get rid of it...and it did. I tried several data recovery programs, and only one was able to recover some of my files, but about 90% of them are useless. A document is just a bunch of ??Ya94~9??A ect ect. Pictures are unreadable, music is corrupt. I'm very organized, and have everything set up into folders and sub-folders upon sub-folders ect. I'd like to not have to find out where everything goes, but if all else fails, I guess I could. Its about 12gb, and if there is any way of getting it back, I'd GREATLY appreciate it. I called a guy who does this for a living, $500 flat rate, and if successsful $100/gb. It's not worth that much, but it has a LOT of value ... Read more
