Can anyone help one of our Novell servers lost time sync and put the date forward to 2025. One of the bosses had about 600 appointments setup for the next year. When he started outlook it thought it was 2025 and Auto-archived all his mail and calendar. Is there anyway to put these entries back or would it have to be done manually. I know you can setup a custom folder but any new appointments don't reference the appointments that have been archived.

Cheers

The user was running Oulook 2000 and we are using Exchange 5.5.

Assuming that you have corrected the time problem on the server and all workstations are now reading the right time, I would have to go with slinks comment of importing items back in from archive.pst (unless the auto-archive engine was set to permanently delete).

If permanent deletion was done, then you move to pforeman's comment of restore files back from Novell's backup if the PST file(s) where located on the Novell server.

If all PST files were located on the C: drive and permanent deletion was selected for the auto-archive engine, there is nothing that can be done unless you do nightly backups of each computer connected to your network.
