Upon closing email program, Outlook express suggested compressing to save space. I chose the Inbox - and compressed the file. I leave a large number of files for future reference (as many as 7,000 - 8,000) in the Inbox. At year's end I more them to an annual file ie. "2005"
Now only emails received thru April 27, 2007 remain in Inbox. There is a large file in C;\Recycler with today's date called Inbox.bak.
How do I recover the entire file with out losing the first 4 month's worth?
