    You confuse me completely.

    1.) "11.12.08" - that's in the future, whichever way around you read it!

    2.) "Last format" - how could you expect files to be found that date from *before* a format?? They're gone because you formatted.

    Wow... I confuse by self.. sorry was so tired at time of post.

    Last format was 9/12/08.
    And after I formated the system, I restored all files and emails. But Google desktop will only find emails up to the format, eventhough older emails exist in outlook. Why will google desktop not recognize these older emails.

    Thank you

    Looks to me like your Desktop Search must be re-indexed.

    This is usually done by uninstalling the whole application, but fortunately there is a useful gadget you might try out:
