First and foremost I've made a bit of a schoolboy error. Over the weekend I was repairing my mother-in-law's PC (she was having problems with her user profile, slow to load, missing icons etc) I happly deleted her user profile. Initially I thought this to be 'not a problem' as all she uses her acient PC is for borwsing the net and email. I'd backed up her IE favorites and everything in her 'My Documents', all I would have to do would be to create a new user profile, set her destop to how it was copy over the IE favs and My Docs and job done, only then did I realise that if she logged into Outlook 2003 her email and settings would be lost.
Am I right in thinking they're lost forever or can her orginal pst file be recovered and restored?
Cheers in advance.
Software in question:
O/S: Winxp Home
Email: Outlook 2003
If all else fails, hit the reset button.
