    Where are files? (OE6)

    A friend of mine uses Outlook Express for her e-mail. She received the following message: "To free up disk space, Outlook Express can compact messages. This may take up to a few minutes.. "

    She began to compact the messages. She noticed that some folders were lost. She went to the Recycle Bin and did a Restore. Still, there are lost messages.
    Are there any suggestions? Thank you very much.

    If the message storage has been compacted, chances of recovery aren't good, but take a look at the section "Help! I've Lost All My Mail, The Messages Just Disappeared!" in Why You Should Let Outlook Express Compact Messages When It Asks You.
