I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Welcome to TSG!
Normally most would tell you they are lost forever, and up to awhile back I would of to!
But
I was researching dbx files, they are the ones that contain the information in outlook express, and I discovered something unusual. Even though I deleted something out of my inbox into the deleted folder and then out of the deleted folder it still had much of the information retained in the Inbox file but not displayed. Not sure why that is but I was tipped to it when I cleaned my Inbox and the file size still remained the same!
This may work to your advantage.
The file we are after is the inbox.dbx
Shut down Outlook Express and then do a Start-Find typing in inbox.dbx once the inbox.dbx is found and there may be several of them look for the one that is the largest in size with your name on it of course, and open it in Wordpad. Scan through all the jibberish and you may find the information you are looking for.
I know it is a shot in the dark but is worth a try.

I had written a long email that would be hard to replace. I went to have a bite to eat, and when I came back Micro$oft had given me an update and rebooted my computer for me.
The email appears to be gone. Is there any way to retrieve it? Seems to me that it's still on my computer someplace. I've gone to Sent, Deleted Item, etc., but it ain't nowhere around. Any suggestions would be appreaciated.

My Alienware Aurora desktop quit booting a couple nights ago. Called tech support, only fix was to reinstall Windows 7 putting all my data (and programs) in a windows.old folder. I'm trying to recover my contacts and email messages. I think I've found the contacts - windows.old/users/logon name/appdata/local/microsoft/windows live contacts/{3024982304}/DBStore/contacts.edb. I am unable to import them back into Contacts or to even view them.... Any fixes?

Also, can anyone tell me 100% what I need to backup from windows.old to make sure I have all of my email messages? I need to finish the backup and then call tech support again to completely format the hard drive and start over again. I can't lose these messages.

I'm not really sure where this belongs but I'll just but it here. I forgot my password for an account on another forum, so I had a resent link sent to the Windows mail (not hotmail) account connected to that forum account. However, I cannot recieve it because for some reason that email account refuses to send or recieve messages until I verify the username and password, which I don't know and can't guess (it rejects everything.) In the meantime it spits various error messages all basicly saying that it has a server error. So now I need to find or reset the email password as well, but I can't figure out how. I've sought help from several places and either gotten no response or still further technical difficulties got in the way. Can anyone help me? This has been very annoying.

One solution I haven't tried is to delete the email account and recreate it. If I did so, would the forum still send password the reset links to it, or would the site no longer recognize it?

I've just started using Outlook 2002 and I'm runnning into two things that are bugging me...

1. I can't find a way to set it up so that my email is automatically retrieved like I could in Outlook 98. Have they removed this feature? I used to have OL98 set up to get email every 5 minutes so that if someone was trying to get in touch with me I wouldn't have to think about doing it manually.

2. Even though I've got one accounts set up as "Save this password...", it either doesn't get saved as it should or it has the wrong password in it.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks.

I have an old hard drive that is hooked to my current machine via an ATP-USB bridge that I basically use for data storage. Firefox was (and still is) installed on that hard drive...is there any way to retrieve the bookmarks from it? Thanks.

A:Retrieval of bookmarks

Firefox stores bookmarks by default in a proprietary format (.json) which can't be opened to see the bookmarks individually, but you can import the file into Firefox (no other web browser will recognise it).

On Windows Vista, the .json bookmarks files (Firefox keeps several of them in the same location, in date order) are here:

C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxx.default\bookmarkbackups

To navigate through that path you will first need to enable Show hidden files & folders in Control Panel >> Folder Options

Since the host drive is from a different Windows installation, you may also need to Take Ownership of the user folder & sub-folders if Windows denies access to them: How to Take Ownership of Files and Folders in Vista

i recently gave my pc to a supposed 'expert' for a planned 2 days as i was getting error messages such as 'common client user has encountered an error and must close down' more and more often. At the time he took my pc away i could access all my files and those of the other users (im on xp home). After 4 days and many phone calls later, he returned the pc with 2 discs which contained both of my children's files but none of mine. I run a small business from home so he has effectively wiped my pc, rebooted and failed to save/retrieve any of my vital data.

Hi guys

I sincerely hope for some help here.
Have a Econonometrics book online in pdf format in which I had done a ton of notes. Stupidly I had not saved and of course my computer shut down. I turn it off again and open Adobe. It asks me if I want to restore the unexpectedly closed files and I clicked yes. Unfortunately my desktop was set up to open all things in word as a default, so therefore Adobe showed me an error message, causing the restoration process not to work.

Now I managed to put desktop to read pdf-files as they should be read. However, I can't seem to access the restoration process anymore!
Please, does anyone know how to make this appear again?

Recently, a friend wanted to transfer the data from the two drives (WD Caviar 855 and 425 Mb) on an old computer that was no longer working to a drive on a new computer running WinXP.

Since I have several USB external drive boxes, I thought the easiest way was to put the old drives into one of the boxes and transfer the data to the new machine via the USB port as I have done successfully many times for several business clients.

Neither drive could be read in this manner by the new machine. In fact, the new machine would not even acknowledge that the drives were plugged in.

Back at the lab, I tried to read them in this manner on two of my computers (both WinXP) -- same result.

Finally, I slaved the drives to one of my older machines running Win98. The drive could be read without problem. In fact, they could now be read on the WinXP computers over my LAN.

At this point it was easy to transfer the data to CD or external USB drive. Problem solved.

Still... why was there a problem with these drives? I have not had a simalar problems with other drives using the same equipment. And yes, I had set the jumpers apropriately: Master for USB external and Slave for internal slave.

I was led to understand that the old drives were running under NT. Could this explain anything?

What I want to know is if there is a way to retrieve particular files using only what is offered in the Boot Menu. I still can't get into Windows and I'm almost certain that the problem has become fubar.

Because the 486 is so old, I don't have a way of connecting the external drive straight to the old computer. However, can i whip out the hard drive from the old computer and put it in the external housing? Will the format of the old drive be an issue?

A:data transfer/retrieval

You can remove the old hdd, put it in an external casing, hook it to a USB port of your xp computer and it will appear just another drive immediately. All the files are accessible. What you want to do with the hard disk thereafter is entirely your choice.

Just remember your old hdd is likely to run at 1/4 of the speed of the one in the XP machine. This is no big deal because the USB is a bottle neck already.

I am attempting to retrieve pictures, etc from a relatives HDD. I have connected the HDD as slave with the proper jumper settings and have verified it in BIOS. After XP has fully booted it detects the drive in device manager, and disk management says online with HDD specs (size, free space, etc) as well. The only thing missing is the drive letter, and I cant for the life of me figure out how to make this drive accessible. When right clicking the Disk 1 box it only gives me 3 options; Convert to Dynamic Disk, Properties, Help. When right clicking the partition field, only Delete partition is available.

This slave HDD is a Fat32 file system, could that be causing the issue? Also, I do not want to format this drive as I would lose the data! Please help!
