Recover e-mail

Is it possible to recover a .pst file if the users profile has been deleted? I've tried a few recovery programs which have found Outlook Data Files and 1 .pst file, but those were much older than what I need.

It depends on whether the space on which the file was has already been used by other data. Also, first check whether it is in the recycle bin. If not, the most important thing to do when you delete data and don't have a backup, is to stop using that PC. If you keep on using the PC chances are high the place will be used where the file was located. Then remove the HD and connect it as a 2nd HD to another PC and scan that other disk using getdataback. If it sees your file(s), register it so you can copy the data to some other location:

We have had to recover lost PST files, deleted PST files and mail that was deleted by employees who tried covering their tracks.

If this is a case where the file was deleted by accident, then the solution above is a very good process to start with. if you are trying to recover a PST file because the user deleted for any reason and you can't find it any other way, try this solution. it is definitely not cheap but it works 100% of the time for us and there is a trial version that shows you if mail can be recovered.

Thanks for the responses. I was able to find the files I was looking for. I will import them next week and see how it goes. I did not try the stellarinfo.com as the last program I tried worked.
I found both responses provided excellant information!!!
