Retrieving Deleted Email

Hello,

I am trying to recover some email that I may have accidentally deleted. I had a Win98 machine, then upgraded to a Win2K machine. I transferred my email over to Win2K, but it seems that there are some emails that I had that didn't get transferred over. When I checked my 98 machine again, the emails weren't there either. I'm on an exchange server, though I don't know how to check to see how long we leave deleted messages on there. Our network admin is gone for the next month and I'm the next in line as far as IT support goes. To sum up, I guess my question is:
-How can I retrieve deleted emails from local machine or server?

Kolina,

it depends on what backup software you use. if you have never run brick level backup before, all you backup tapes on hand will not provide brick level restore. Well, of course you can turn it on from now, but it's not going to help you restore your previous missing messages.

Nevertheless, your backup tape may still do the job, how?
- Run a full backup for your current exchange to TAPE A
- Restore the whole exchange with your previous backup tape
- Now you have all you old emails back into your inbox, export those emails to a pst
- Restore the whole exchange with TAPE A
Highly not recomend you going through such trouble and risky process, unless the message you are looking for is extremely important and no way to have the sender resend it again.
