My laptop was re-imaged by our helpdesk support and he use ghost software to re-image after that I lost my email (PST file). I lost 90% from my businesses if there is any solution to recover my files please help me....
For your Information I use windows vista and Microsoft Office 2007 and I saved my previous email file on C:\ partition because before re-image my system I had one partition but now they created two partitions C and D.
Thank you.

Hmmm, it's highly unlikely that you will be able to recover the mails because data has already been saved onto the harddisk; potentially overwriting any data that could have been recoverable

It is highly unlikely that you will recover the data because the original data will have been overwritten by the imaging process. However, you could try the EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard here http://www.easeus.com/

It is very very good at recovering lost data and might be worth a shot.
