 I have a client having issues with outlook that we cannot seem to resolve. Basically we had sent her PC off for deep data recovery at a specialized facility and they were able to retrieve an outlook .pst and an archive file. the client is very concerned about getting her contacts back. She already setup outlook, version 2010, and logged into her email. When trying to go under account settings and import the recovered outlook and archive files, the outlook is 1.27 gigs then archive is about 4.5Mb, they take about 2 hours to import but then they only show about 20 sent messages, nothing in the inbox and nothing anywhere else. Is there any other option to try and recover contacts/inbox messages?

or on Linux




The Linux version will be the most forceful/surest(if it is readable it will extract it), the application the easiest... Good luck.

The location depends on the version of Outlook. 2010 puts things in "My Documents\Outlook Files"
