Replaced PST. How to recover?

Q: Replaced PST. How to recover?

Hello everyone, I am in urgent need of your help. While making a copy paste from a users profile, a friend of mina accidentally replaced the .pst of my Outlook. Now, I've lost all e-mails from the day the old .pst was recorded, ultil today. Is there any tool that can recover the replaced .pst? I already looked for something to solve this situation on the Internet but I only find recovery tools for deleted messages or corrupted .pst, which is not the situation here. Can you help?

Preferred Solution: Replaced PST. How to recover?

I recommend downloading and running Outlook PST Repair. It's a PST repair tool that I've used it in the past to recover emails, contacts, tasks and notes from corrupt Outlook files that are damaged or inaccessible. Supports Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/1bjhSi. (This link will automatically start a download of Outlook PST Repair that you can save to your computer.)

A: Replaced PST. How to recover?

Not to my knowledge either, as you have also found.

As the .pst file hold all emails and attachments, contacts etc it is a high priority for backing up. I do mine daily just in case...

I replaced the crashed hard drive and im now getting this message, No bootable device-- insert boot disk and press any key. Please help me i dont have any idea what to do? 

A:Replaced HD,want to up grade IOS and do not have any recover...

Hi: You're getting that message because there is no operating system installed on the hard drive you replaced. You would have to order recovery disks for your model (if they are available from a 3rd party vendor) and they are only for Windows Vista. Do you have the 1245dx, ca, ef or eo model? Otherwise you would have to purchase a full retail or OEM version of W7.

you know when you have 2 folders with the same name and the computer asks you if you want to replace it, keep both and such ? well, I did that to a very important folder that was on my external hard drive, now I don't know what to do? is there any way to recover the folder to its version before I replaced it?

ps: information - I replaced using a mac OSX Lion, but I can use any softwares for windows since the folder is on my hard drive not on my laptop
- also, they were photos, which I edited with photoshop, so maybe there's something I can do in photoshop, maybe?
- it wasn't deleted, it was replaced!

A:is there any way to recover a file when you replaced its folder?

Have you looked in the recycle bin?If you still can't find the files, try Recuva: http://www.piriform.com/recuvaFor future reference, regular backups will help you avoid such problems.

A:Can't recover Windows 10 on to replaced hard disk

If you are not getting the Recover from Drive option, you must have missed selecting the option to "Backup system files to the recovery drive" when creating the Recovery drive, so you will have to download and create Windows 10 Installation Media to reinstall Windows 10 to you laptop.     Download Windows 10https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 When you get to the point where it asks for a Product Key, select the to skip  (or I do not have a key) option and Windows will automatically activate upon completion of the installation.  Unfortunately you will be starting clean, so any data will have to be restored from backup, and applications will have to be reinstalled.  FYI, If you do no have your data backed up, with luck you may still be able to recover it from the old drive if it just failed to boot from the drive, by mounting the drive into an external 2.5 inch USB enclosure, and copying off the the c:\users\<username> folders to your new HD.  Cheers,

A routine hardware scan found errors in the hard drive and the motherboard, so I contacted Lenovo support.  They had a technician come to my house and replace the parts, then started the recovery DVDs to get the system running again.  However it failed to install!  He called Lenovo service and tried several things to get it installed, to no avail.   They sent me a new set of six recovery discs, but these have now also failed.  I contacted support again and they tried to help me through several boot options to get it to work, but nothing has worked.  They have "escalated my case to the Customer Relations Office" so they can resolve my issue, but I am now worried that this is going to drag on for a very long time.   Does anyone else have suggestions about how to resolve this issue?  Could my upgrade to Windows 10 be complicating this?

My monitor goes black and I am forced to reboot. After rebooting I get a blue screen prompt telling me that i've recovered from a BSOD. I've been monitoring them since October.

In October, I RMA'd my graphics card. Oct 27. You can see that after I got a new GPU, my BSOD's halted... so obviously its the GPU right? if you look at my BSOD dumps the last one is OCT 27, new gpu, and i don't get one until Feb 7.

So on Feb 7 I call up eVGA again and say, ok so my GPU is bad again and I wonder if its something im doing to kill them.

So I am going to get a second RMA and the tech tells me that they received my first card and they ran it for over a hour in a diagnostic app and didn't have a single problem... aka my card was fine...

so i explain my BSOD issues and the tech tells me that it may be a voltage issue and that it may be my power supply... soooooooooo

I goto Tiger Direct down the street and buy a "whatever i can get" thats over 1000 watts supply because I have a 850 watt PSU and obviously its not enough power so i go big... and guess what... My last BSOD dump before the PSU is 3/18 March 18. So new PSU and I don't get a single BSOD until 6/14/2014.

So I have attached "All" of my dumps and all my info with the issues.

My problem is... if its "not" my GPU, why did getting a new one give me no BSOD for 3 months.

A:BSOD 0x116 (stop error) Replaced GPU, replaced RAM, replaced PSU

Hi Zuriel.

I read your OP. I would suggest you to have an open mind; and dont decide that it is not it. Because during troubleshooting you have to get everything tested.

The BSOD is a stop 0x116. That is an error from the part of the display environment. That means ....
The GPU itself
The display driver
The system temps and dust allocation inside the computer
The hardware parts like GPU fans
Overclocking failure
And etc. I would suggest you to go through a thorough troubleshooting, whatever may be the idea you may have about those.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Check if the Power Supply Unit (PSU, 850 watts you said) supplying adequate power to the computer or not.

I have a HTII 713 luggable PC that will not power on. When this problem first started, you would hit the power switch and the power would "stutter" but not come on or make it to post. I upgraded the power supply. It originally had a 460W PSU and I upgraded to an Antec 650W PSU hoping that would cure my ills. Still displaying the same symptoms. I got an exact replacement Intel motherboard (Intel DP965LT) and swapped it out.

Now I get power lights, but no fans, or hard drives spinning up. When I hit the power, the case fans and PSU fan will move just a tick but not spin and this only happens the first time I hit the power switch. I have to wait about a minute or so and try again to get this to even do this much. I've triple checked the power connections and mobo connections.

Any ideas?

Hi all, a while ago I had the idea to start from scratch to clean up the system and gain more performance. But I have not done yet because I have some doubts.

On the PC I have Acronis True Image Home 2011
--> In the part where it says My backups I see the image that I have saved.
--> When I click on "Explore and recover" :To the right I see 2 items to recover: "Reserved for System and Local Disk (C)"
Therefore, the partition (D)will remain intact. Right ? But if I want to restore everything, both partitions, i have to use the option "Files and folders" ?

Extra info : I did not create the image, other person is who created it :P

A:Difference between recover partitions or recover files and folders.

How long ago was that Acronis image made?

I guess I don't understand your intent. You talk about starting over to clean up and gain more performance, but then express interest in restoring "everything".

Was that image made at a time when your system was running perfectly? How has your system changed since that date? If you restore, you will have to reinstall any applications you've acquired since the image was made. And that image won't contain any personal data acquired since it was made. Maybe it contains no personal data at all?
If you are going to "start from scratch", I assume you mean you want to do a clean install of Windows.

If you were to do that, the only thing in that image file that might possibly be important to you would be personal files---pictures, videos, mp3s, Word documents, browser bookmarks, possibly email, etc. And that would be personal files as of the date of that image, not your current personal files. And not Windows itself.

If I wanted to "start over", I would:

1: back up all current personal files to some other drive, probably external. I would NOT use an image for this. I'd just copy them with the mouse.

2: reinstall Windows.

If I did those 2 things, the contents of the Acronis image would be irrelevant.

You should forget about Acronis if you don't understand it or know whats in any images you have. Particularly if you didn't make the image yourself. Images can fail you anyway. I'd never rely on them exclusi... Read more

My hard drive is failing on my HP envy m6 and I need to install my windows 8.1 OS over to a new drive. The computer will not boot completely and I have bad sectors affecting the c: drive. Windows tries to fix them but it ran for over 24 hours and never finished. I have been able to copy over the recovery partition to a new drive, but an OS transfer using partition software does not work.

I had the thread CPU usage @ 10 0%. Although it is marked solved I never did figure out so I tried something else. I bought a faster CPU. Motherboard in computer is AMD AM37 Salsa with a 2000+ CPU and 1048 RAM . After lon, long searching I found that this board would support up to a 3200+ CPU. I ordered a 3000+ CPU and removed original then installed new. Powered up tower, PSU fan started, CPU fan started, but thats all. Floppy did not make normal startup self check and screen power button light changed from yellow to green showing it was getting signal, but all that light up on screen was a small 1/4 inch white blinking rectangle upper right corner. Thinking I might have screwed up new CPU I took it back out and reinstalled original 2000+ CPU and now it won't work either. Same exact problem. The place I bought the 3000+ new CPU checked it and said I did not screw it up. It's OK. Now my question. Is there something I needed to do to the settings, BIOS, or what ever of the motherboard to make the computer recconnize or hard drive reconnize the change in CPU? Acts like motherbord is no working to load up anything.

Awhile back my computer started issuing one long beep instead of booting. Nothing would come on screen, it just beeped.

So I was told that long beeps mean memory errors. I switched out the ram but it did no good. I switched out the video card,motherboard and powersupply for good measure, but the damn thing is still beepiong at me.Considering that the Hard Drive and DVD/DVDRW/Floppy Disk should not affect the boot process at all, I have to assume that it's my processor.

However, I wanted to make sure that there wasn't something I was forgetting before I plop down money for a new processor.Could it be anything else?

This is going to be a little long but any help would be great. I am trying to fix a AMD Duron 650 machine that died a little while back. My brother was on vacation and when he came home is computer was turned off and would not restart. When I opened the case, the heatsink was filled with dust. I used a can of compressed air to remove all of the dust from the case and heatsink. The computer still would not turn on (not a surprise to me). I figured "well, the processor probably couldn't cool thus it overheated (no burn marks on processor)". After purchasing a used Duron 800 chip and plugging it back in (with new thermal grease) I still got nothing. Back to the store and picked up a motherboard. Plugged it all back in and still nothing fan would spin and stop. So, next what's left of course... PSU. I bought a brand new AMD 350w PSU came home and installed it. Reset CMOS, and pushed power, what do I get ... nothing!!!! I think if I can remember right the processor fan would spin but nothing else. No video, no beeps. Now I am thinking that the video card is bad so I take on out of my other computer and get the same result. I did try the old one in the other computer and it worked. So now I assume that the new motherboard was bad. The guy at the store gave me crap about returning it because I told him he sold me a faulty motherboard. So he pulls out all of his testing equipment and he gets the same result I do. So he gives me a different motherboard. I get home ... Read more

My sister bought a new computer from a company, it was a toshiba C660 something or other. It runs windows 7 home premium 64bit. When it first arrived it constantly BSODed, I tried all I could to diagnose the problem but in the end it seemed that getting a new one sent out would be the safest option. There was only a 3 day return window.

There was a massive hassle even getting them to take it back and wanted a refund, but we were told we would get an upgraded model as replacement. So after about two weeks we finally received the product and it is the exact same laptop. Upgraded does not equal fixed. I took pictures of the serial code etc. However, on turning it on I got the recovery screen i.e., start windows in safe mode, safe mode with network etc. I realised they have probably done nothing to it, and it is definitely the same one.

I checked the event view logs to see if it had been turned on and the last time it had been was the day before it was sent away. I phoned up today and asked for them to collect it and for us to be refunded but was told it says it is fixed on their systems and this means we can't return it a second time. I then went on to explain it has never been turned on. She said it had. I said I have proof it hasn't been. She then said but we replaced the memory so that is why it says it has not been switched on. I explained that the hard drive is where the log files are store and so changing memory has no effect.

well. i just really would love to get rid of the celeron, i can't say its a bad processor, I say its highly underated cuz its actually pretty decent. well I still would like a p4 seeing as they are faster and more powerful so can processors be changed? and if they can can my motherboard support a p4, i know my motherboard support ht tech by the way, it said on the manual.

Hi there

NO WAY will tablets etc take over PC's -- I've just been messing around with some Video files -- not too large -- and even on a 16GB QUAD 3.2 GHZ processor video conversions and DVD burning take a LONG LONG TIME - even paralleling up for using all 4 cores -- no way on this or any other planet in the universe would a tablet be capable of performing these sorts of tasks in any sensible timeframe whatsoever.

(It might complete ONE project in time for YEAR 3000 left running 24 hrs a day (Y3K - where I suppose people will be wondering why their leap year stuff is broken !!!!!).

Tablets may have their uses but not for these sorts of tasks in any shape or form - I could really do with an 8 Core I7 (if there is such an animal).


A:No way will PC's die and be replaced by tablets

Yeah, PC's will always be around for these type of tasks. But the average computer user is doing far less or stuff like that these days....hence the reason that tablets are becoming the norm.

A:Ntoskrnl.exe Needs To Be Replaced

Sometimes a faulty keyboard can cause this. Try another keyboard if you have on handy (or maybe borrow a friends).Have you tried "Last Known Good Configuration" from the Safe Mode menu?Also, you could go to the website of your hard drive manufacturer and download a diagnostic tool to test the drive.I assume you already tried typing this in the Recover Console:expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32 but if not, try that also (where d: is the CD drive).

My old motherboard stopped working, so while it's getting repaired, I decided to swap it with another one (different model). The problem is, Windows 7 won't boot anymore. I get a blue screen of death and the system keeps rebooting. Now I know replacing a motherboard with an old install is not a good idea, but I really need the files and programs I have on my hard drive. I don't want to do a fresh install either because I'll be putting back my old board once it's repaired. I tried a "automatic repair", but with no success. Am I out of options? The old board is an ASUS M4A78-PLUS and the new one is an ASUS M2N68-AM.

Any suggestion?

Are the BIOS settings on the new MB "in agreement" with the old MB BIOS?

If you ever get to a Win7 Boot Manager screen, run the Memory Diagnostics.

First off......I am not connected to internet at home and use public access but I do bring files home on my thumb drive.

this is, I think, a tel.xls.exe problem!

my question is this.... when I want to access my 2nd internal drive or my usb ports, I used go to my computer, double click on the icon and was right there.
BUT I am not. I need to right click on the icon and select open.

I have had this problem for some time now (after already performing a drastic recovery (from manufactures files on a separate drive on my cpu).

Recently, I found due to other problems (maybe I can get help on these on another topic), I performed another drastic recovery. after drastic recovery, all had to be put back in place, re installing software and such. but first I wanted to try accessing my 2nd internal drive D:

it came up with could not find tel.xls.exe. the problem did not get fixed with the recovery files.

so i looked on internet to find out a worm somehow may have replace tel.xls.exe and found that a worm could have replace my original tel.xls.exe file. which file is supposed to open these internal and external drives?

now i am confused!
i found your site and how to load HJTsetup.exe
must i be connected to internet to run this to its fullest advantage?

i don't fully understand what i am supposed to do after I download it. can you help?

I feel so dumb!!!

Before the PSU failed completely the PC was running slow, it would take ages to boot up but would eventually get there. Once it loaded some programs run fine but some were very slow. For example it would take a while to launch firefox but once it was running the web and relative speed seemed fine.

The PSU eventually failed completey so I have replaced it and now it boots up as it should but is still slow.

I have two HDD's both partitioned. The C drive and the F drive are on the old disk and the Y and the Z are on the newer one.

I took the c/f drive out and run it in as an external hard drive on my laptop and it was fine, i could browse through large jpegs no problems and it was much quicker than when installed in the desk top. The C drive is mainly program files and the f drive is documents etc.

I have run spyware docotor , ad aware, reg mechanic etc and it all seems fine I have inclueded the HJT log below but from my little knowledge it seems ok, I would appreciate your thoughts though.

chk dsk is fine too.

I don't know what to do now, I have disabled the start up progs that aren't necessary etc etc and seem to have tried all the common fixes and have now hit the wall. It just isn't as fast as it used to be and we did do a complete reinstall of windows xp several months ago.

The one thing that might be a problem but I'm not sure is that when I put the new HDD in the information about the pin configuration for master slave etc was a bit amb... Read more

Long story short a new computer i was working on was having issues during a fresh instal so i swapped out 2 Raided hard drives i was using for info that i needed. Well little did i know at the time that a RAID cannot be transfered onto another computer and being able to view the data. So i term i think i messed it up (the raid).. I put the hard drives back into the original system and i had to delete the raid due to an error. Now all my info is still on the raids. If i create a new one it tells me that all info on the hard drives will be lost.
My question is can i put a raid back on the hard drives with out losing the info?

KR7A Raid Abit

2x 40 gig hd's

A:Can a Raid be replaced?!?

Would it operate as a slave on the main ide cable? It's the same machine, though I think the machine sees it as a scsi device and has to be on the raid line. If thats the case can you put it in another machine with raid? Unless it looks for other id's.

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop. This last weekend I started it up as usual and when it was done booting up I noticed that it was running from the battery. Thinking that a/c cord was unplugged I reached around to check it out. However the a/c cord was plugged in. I did notice though that it was wobbly. I unplugged it and plugged it back in several times and it kept running off of the battery. So I called the Dell tech support and after telling them all of this they determined the motherboard was bad so they are sending the parts and a tech person to my house to fix it. I have two questions though.

1) Why does the whole motherboard need to be replaced?

2)Will I lose anything on my harddrive, or do I need to do anything while I have some battery left so that I don't lose anything?
Thanks for the help.

It's been a long time since I had to do any administrative functions in windows. I remember that there was a replacement for msconfig to enable/disable services and startups but can't remember its name. Wrote it down once but can't find what I wrote it on.

Thanks for any responses.

A couple weeks ago my motherboard suddenly stopped working overnight. (I tested all of my other components with another (similar) computer and everything else was working fine.) I just finally got around to replacing the motherboard with an identical one. However, when it boots up it prompts me to select from Safe Mode/Last Known.../Star Windows Normally/etc.. If I choose Start Windows normally, it just freezes and nothing happens. If I choose Last Known Good Configuration, the screen turns all black and nothing happens. And if I choose one of the Safe Mode options, a list of filenames (I think) fill up the screen and then nothing happens.

The computer I used to test my parts also uses the exact same kind of motherboard, and I had no problem using my hard drive with that. Any thoughts? And thank you very much in advance.

I just changed the HD in an old PC, a Pentium 2, 333MMX that originally had 6gig HD. I upgraded the ram to 256 recently to speed the thing up, and loaded windows XP. It was working great and running XP no probs at all. It doesn't go online and the kids only use it for games, word, powerpoint etc.

I then decided to upgrade the hard drive for a bigger one. I picked up two used hard-drives from a car boot sale - the guy told us they were both 15 gig. One is a Maxtor 93073U6 (which online research has lead me to believe may actually be 30 gig) and the other is a 10 gig Seagate.

Firstly I tried to install the Maxtor. On initial bootup it listed the Maxtor (so it must have known it was there), and when going into Setup the Maxtor was listed there too. However there was no sign of the actual hard-drive once the computer went through the initial bootup. I tried putting the windows disc in but nothing happened. Could it be there is a problem adding such a large HD to an old machine, or maybe I forgot to do something in the BIOS? Or could it be a jumper setting? We set the jumpers according to the Master setting on this diagram http://www.sunstarco.com/images/dmjumpers.jpg

Secondly I decided to give up on the Maxtor and try installing the Seagate HD instead. Everything seemed to be fine, it loaded immediately and already had windows 98 on it. I decided to upgrade to XP and the beginning of the installation seemed to go fine - near the end of the installation the screen went bl... Read more
