Win 2000 – Profile Deleted – Can I recover my favorites and Outlook .Pst file?
Posted on 2004-08-13
I deleted the profile in the system properties that had my favorites and my outlook .PST file. Is there any way to get my favorites and my outlook .PST file back?
I right clicked on My Computer, Properties, User Profiles tab. Picked what I thought were the bad profiles and clicked the delete button.
Is it possible to get the favorites and .pst file back?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The below is not important, but if your curious why I did what I did, it will give you a smile.
Situation: I had someone come in to replace the Hard Drive on my server. He said he could do it and I would be back up and running in a couple of hours. That was 3 days ago. He had to reinstall Win 2000 Server and all my profiles on my 3 machines were messed up. He didn’t know what he was doing, so I’m in charge now and I (I’m a programmer not a network person) definitely don’t know what I’m doing.
Problem: I screwed up on machine #1. When I took over it had 6 profiles on the machine. LocalMachine\Administrator, Network\Administrator and LocalMachine\LJG, Network\LJG and 2 profiles from the previous install of Win 2000.
