  • All of my messages disappeared after 5 emails deleted on my Document__How of restoring/recovering lost emails?

    Hello:
    Outlook Express 6 with XP

    I deleted some emails accumulated in My paper this morning. When I went to O.E.6 to read some old emails, there are NOT, well there are 40 different types of emails were sitting in front of access to my documents.

    Apparently, all emails, both current and past the Outlook Express 6 have been removed. The e-mail address I see is now a single when open O.E.6.
    My questions are;
    (1) how it happened? .... I never deleted the boxes O.E.6, i.e. "deleted items", "Outbox" including "in-field".

    (2) how to recover/restore all e-mails lost after removing some of the e-mails to my Document?  "Trash," I restored actually one or two files by right click,... but where are they now?

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

     

    Please explain how the email arrived first in My Documents? Only, I can help with messages that have been lost since the Outlook Express folders.

    Two reasons the most common for what you describe is disruption of the compacting process, (never touch anything until it's finished), or bloated folders. More about that below.

    Why OE insists on compacting folders when I close it? :

    Recovery methods:

    If you use XP/SP2 or SP3, and are fully patched, then you should have a backup of your dbx files in the Recycle Bin (or possibly the message store), copied as bak files.

    To restore a folder bak on the message store folder, first find the location of the message store.

    Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.

    In Windows XP, the .dbx files are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in the Solution Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder options | View.

    Close OE and in Windows Explorer, click on the dbx to the file missing or empty file, then drag it to the desktop. It can be deleted later once you have successfully restored the bak file. Minimize the message store.

    Open OE and, if the folder is missing, create a folder with the * exact * same name as the bak file you want to restore but without the .bak. For example: If the file is Saved.bak, the new folder should be named saved. Open the new folder, and then close OE. If the folder is there, but just empty, continue to the next step.

    First of all, check if there is a bak file already in the message. If there is, and you have removed the dbx file, go ahead and rename it in dbx.

    If it is not already in the message, open the trash and do a right-click on the file bak for the folder in question and click on restore. Open the message store up and replace the .bak by .dbx file extension. Close the message store and open OE. Messages must be in the folder.

    If messages are restored successfully, you can go ahead and delete the old dbx file that you moved to the desktop.
     
    If you have not then bak copies of your dbx files in the Recycle Bin:

    DBXpress run in extract disc Mode is the best chance to recover messages:
    http://www.oehelp.com/DBXpress/default.aspx

    And see:
    http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#4

    A general warning to help avoid this in the future:

    Do not archive mail in default OE folders. They finally are damaged. Create your own folders defined by the user for mail storage and move your mail to them. Empty the deleted items folder regularly. Keep user created folders under 300 MB, and also empty as is possible to default folders.

    Disable analysis in your e-mail anti-virus program. It is a redundant layer of protection that devours the CPUs, slows down sending and receiving and causes a multitude of problems such as time-outs, account setting changes and has even been responsible for the loss of messages. Your up-to-date A / V program will continue to protect you sufficiently. For more information, see:
    http://www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3

    And backup often.

    Concerning

  • Windows 7 Home Premium - all user accounts have disappeared after the update of Windows...

    My Windows 7 Desktop is really watered.  After a Windows automatic update, none of the user accounts appear in the login window.  Only a generic connection where you will need to enter the user and the password are displayed.  And when I enter the user name and password, I get a message that they are not valid.

    Here are a few additional pieces of information:

    1. I tried to restore to the point before the update, but it fails.  I get a message that there are missing files.

    2. my other restore points I had before the update are no longer available.  I don't know what happened to them that they do not appear on the screen of restore points.

    3. I can't log on to the computer at all, none of the accounts work.  I can get to a command prompt by using the repair disk, and I can see all the folders for the users.  So everything is intact.   Something must have happened to some system files and thus connect is not possible.

    4. users appear in the list of profiles in the registry.

    5. no windows service start because none of the users are no longer valid.

    6. I tried sfc/scannow, but I get an error "already waiting.

    7. I tried to add users on the command line using net and they are successful but even when they do not appear on the login screen and I can't manually type in these user accounts - I get the message that they are not valid.

    I tried searching online and I'm still not able to connect to the computer.  It has been 2 days of downtime.  What happened to my old restore points?  And why doesn't my restore points created by the work of windows update?

    I want to just restore from factory default, but I'm afraid I'll lose data in particular, all of the files currently sitting in the user folders.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Here are a few comments:

    1. I tried to restore to the point before the update, but it fails.  I get a message that there are missing files.

    -> Which files are missing? Can you give an example?

    2. my other restore points I had before the update are no longer available.

    -> This happens after the automatic updates.

    5. no windows service start because none of the users are no longer valid.

    -> How to tell you, because you were unable to connect?

    7. I tried to add users on the command line using net and they are successful but even when they do not appear on the login screen and I can't manually type in these user accounts - I get the message that they are not valid.

    ->, I guess you have done this so that in the WRE (repair Windows environment). It is a ghost environment that disappears that you restart the system. Drive X: is a virtual, not a real disc.

    I want to just restore from factory default, but I'm afraid I'll lose data in particular, all of the files currently sitting in the user folders.

    -> Many people are unaware of the need for regular backups (for example, weekly) until they are suffering from a major disaster.

    Suggestions

    Going by your description, I suspect that your existing accounts are irreparable. They need to be rebuilt. User data appear to be safe.

    Option 1. Use the console commands then in WRE to save all the files of the user on an external hard drive. A disk 2.5 "500 GB in a USB enclosure costs less than $60,00. After having tested the files on another machine, perform a destructive factory restore.

    Option 2. Start the computer with a boot of Ubuntu CD, then its GUI allows to save files to the user. It takes time to burn such a CD, but the copy process is easier. When you're done, do a factory restore.

    Option 3. A somewhat complex process allows you to create a new admin account, and then use this account to create new user accounts. You must then manually configure each of them (for example Outlook) and move their records of the old data to the new profile folders.

    There is also a method to restore old files registry of a set of backup files are a few days old. In your case I wouldn't consider as it would create a disjoint system: the registry files refers to a set of files that have been largely modified by the update.

    Post again if you need more detailed instructions for the option that you favor.

  • Documents folder disappeared!

    Hi all

    I have a strange problem with my computer, running Windows Vista. All my files were under a folder called "Documents", but in Hebrew ("Mismachim"). I have always used this folder for my documents and it was very good.

    Suddenly, I tried to locate the folder ("Mismachim") and it was gone - now he had another name instead, called "Documents" - in English. The folder was empty and all my documents are gone!

    I tried to run a system restore, which seems to solve the problem concerning the name - it's 'Mismachim' again, but my most recent files of the last days are no longer there. I really need to find these files.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi all. IAM using Adobe Document Cloud. After you save a PDF to that cloud, I am able to see my PC files. How to disable this? Is - it my PC files are also available through other PC to access with my Adobe ID? Please help me. Thank you

    Hi all. IAM using Adobe Document Cloud. After you save a PDF to that cloud, I am able to see my PC files as well with a navigation option. How to disable this? My PC files will also be available on other PCs to access with my Adobe ID? Please help me. Thanks in advance.

    Hi indi68632954,

    I can understand your concern & you need to worry about this, as the folders in your PC are not available on other PCs as this option is just to browse through files of the specific system you are working on as shown in the screenshot below.

    Only the files that have been uploaded to the cloud of Document will be available over the Internet using Adobe Document Cloud service during authentication of your Adobe ID & password.

    I hope this will answer your query.

    In the case where if you have any other question please let us know, we will be happy to help you.

    Kind regards

  • The digitized files disappear after that scanning with HP Solution Center update

    The digitized files disappear after that scanning with HP Solution Center update

    Have a HP Officejet Pro L7590 all-in-one.  Under Vista 64-bit.

    Updated my Center of solutions for version 14.  Now when I scan something, it scans OK then when I save to file it away.  Looked on the HP site and found Update critical for this problem, however, the critical update is to version 13 and when I try to run it it tells me I need not and will not continue.

    Also: (maybe something to do with the problem) when using the / opening of the solution Center, when I goes to the buttons "ScanPicture" or "Scan a Document" and then click on "Change settings" there is nothing in the drop-down list for the ' Scan To: ' section.

    Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times.  Does not work.

    See you soon!

    Hello

    Enter C:\Program Files (x 86) \HP\Digital Imaging\bin and search for the file hpqxmlul.dll .

    Move this file to a temporary folder elsewhere as your office, just to backup porpuses.

    Download and save the following file to your desktop, remove it by double-clicking, a new hpqxmlul.dll file appears on your desktop.

    Move this file in C:\Program Files (x 86) \HP\Digital Imaging\bin.

    Today the launch of the HP Solution Center and test analysis, check any changes with the sweep for list as well.

    Please let me know of any changes.

  • All my documents (images, music, videos, etc.) have disappeared or been displaced.

    So a few days ago I connect my computer to the family and see that my wallpaper changed the regular background of Vista and all my desktop icons and widgets have disappeared. I look in the 'My pictures' folder and see that none of my pictures are there, except for the examples of photos. I go on iTunes and my music disappeared. I went to Microsoft Word and none of my documents work. My sister somehow found them by writing a document name is located on the search bar 'computer '. She found a paper and found where it was. Everything was in a folder called 'downloads '. Then we found everything and she put everything back where it belonged. Then a few days later, I log back into my account and notice that, again, my desktop icons have disappeared. I go to my pictures and all my pictures have disappeared again. So all my music and documents. My sister has tried to do the same thing she made last time. To try to find a document passed and find where everything is, but when she gets in a document name, nothing more appears. Its not not to find one of my things. I lose all my photos and music? How could this have happened? is it possible that I got hacked? And is it possible at all to get back my stuff? I do not back up anything. And all this happened today because yesterday everything was where it was supposed to be. Please help, I'm really confused. Thank you.

    You must scan your system against viruses and malware.  Get www.microsoft.com/security_essentials and www.malwarebytes.org and do a full system scan with each.  Then, you may need to restore shortcuts and other thereafter.  It really depends on how messed up it.  It might be useful to take a reputable shop and have them back up the disk and fix problems.
