Outlook absolutley Shizzled....please help!!!!
Posted on 2005-05-03
Need some advice if possible......
Right, user logged into there machine and the error message "Your roaming profile is not available, you will be logged on with a locally stored profile. Changes to this profile will not be copied to the server, possible causes insufficient privalages/ network problems.
unknowingly, (as most of my users have local profiles rather than roaming ones) I deleted the profile and loaded machine again, which worked fine, no error messages, straight in.
Now, have opened outlook and previous e-mails/calender and contacts that the user had have now disappeared! When i opened outlook, there was the message stating that the default location has now changed, etc, etc.
I've thought that maybe the machine was set up for e-mails to go straight to a .pst or .ost file, have done searches (including one's for hidden files) with no joy and have also, tried data recovery software, but still no joy....
Could it be a case that as I deleted the profile, that the outlook information has gone as well? If so, any idea's how i could recover this? P.S backup is not an option, as I'm guessing that the info would have resided on the users c drive
Bwoy, what a day!!!
