I formatted my hard drive to reinstall windows xp. I took a whole day to make sure that I had everything backed up...I thought. I imported the pst file that I had saved for my Microsoft Outlook 2000 emails and it only contained my inbox emails. I had a lot of subfolders with emails that I have received for my business for the last three years. After I got done kicking myself for not clicking the "include subfolders" box before I saved the pst file, I realized that I could use Easeus Partition Master to recover the pst file from before the format. After Easeus finished recovering the image, I recovered the outlook.pst file from C:\Documents and Settings\*my name*\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook, I imported it into Microsoft Outlook and set back watching it load thinking I was really smart. When it got done, I still only had my inbox emails and it didn't recover all the subfolders with the three years of emails. I clicked "include subfolders" when I was importing. The data size of the pst file was similar to the size of the contacts.pst file and sentitems.pst that I saved. It seems that the subfolders weren't in the outlook.pst from before. Does anyone know if Microsoft Outlook stores subfolders in a different .pst file? I think I could recover them with Easeus if I can just find them. Somebody please help if you can. I really need all of those emails for legal purposes as well as my sanity.EDIT: Moved from XP to more appropriate Web Browsing/Email forum ~ Hamluis.
