I recently deleted (accidentally) all of the emails in my wife's Inbox in Windows Live Mail. I also emptied her Deleted Items folder so now some important emails that she was keeping in the Inbox are gone.
With some assistance on this forum, I was able to locate the Inbox folder for her Windows Live Mail account, and since I did a full backup a week ago, I figured it would be easy to simply restore the Inbox from last week.
I plugged in the backup drive, went to Backup and Restore in Control Panel and selected Restore My Files. I was able to navigate to the Windows Live Mail Inbox on the backup drive and I selected it and clicked Restore. A window opened stating that the restore was complete, but there was also a pointer to a log file. I opened the log file and saw that the restore operation had "skipped" restoring all of the email files in the Inbox.
I've restored data files before without any difficulty, so I must be doing something wrong in this case. Can anyone shed some light on why I couldn't restore the email files to the Inbox folder?
Thanks in advance.
