Hello all,

Yesterday I opened Outlook Express and didn't see my emails, contacts, notes.
Is there any possibility to recover these items ?

Thanks in Advance,

First, use Outlook Express basic repair kit, usually it must be enough for solving problem
If you have backup copy on PC, make import backup to your Outlook Express
In case you couldn't solve issue after using these recommendations, use Outlook Express Repair Toolbox
Tool is able to:
- Restore messages from files larger than 2GB
- Batch restoration mode for *.dbx files
- Restore information from *. DBX files for Outlook Express 5, 5.5, 6

You can recover your files if you can locate the damaged DBX files. Now, the question arises how to find the location? So here are the steps :
1. Click Start + R. Type regedit and click Enter
2. Registry Editor window will appear. Expand the folders in left panel: HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Identities>XYZ>Software>Microsoft>Outlook Express>5.0
3. On the right panel, navigate to Store Root and double click. You will get the path of DBX files, copy the path.
After finding the location, copy the path and move the files to new file by following the steps given in the post below:
It is the only solution which is a free solution.

I hope this will helps you
