That information you provided will help a lot. I recovered most of my files but not all of my email files from Windows Mail, although I did recover some.

I have learned an invaluable lesson with this experience. I am investing in a large external hard drive for backing up my important documents. I know I should have been doing this, but kept putting it off.

This will save me hours, if not days of work recovering files that I simply should have backed up.

Thank you.

tx - but remember : external drives die too; and even more often than internal ones !
i suggest :
1-use an external drive for daylay work changes, and backup
2-once a week, or month, backup important data on DVD (Rewriteable, or Write once)
