Running win xp (home) .

I have some flaw that's developed in my Outlook Express. The delete in main window doesn't work. Yes, I can move files to another folder, and then delete them by going to File location and running that to illustrate. Deleting the .dbx file does delete the original messages. However, this is a manual process. Be better if my delete worked.

Now: if I go back several months to when it was working, will running the restore repair only my operational files? I'd like to save my recent emails, and hope it would repair my operating files, including the delete function now messed up.

What I don't want to do is get my email involved in running restore. If it's operating files, that's good.
