Outlook Express issue...HELP!

OK, OE said it was going to compact stuff to free up disk space. I said OK and NOW three really crucial folders are missing from my Inbox. I'm slightly freaked and would really appreciate help in locating these. I have no clue where to find these. HELP!!!

Yes but it doesn't seem to search in my email folders. Is there a way to do that? I'm up for anything.

If you direct the search to your C: drive, it should include everything on the computer.

jake's advice is to search your file folder or system restore, also.

First, did you delete the folders from within Outlook Express or from within Windows?

Second, did you already empty your Recycle bin?

Send a message via MSN to kitchenelf
I'm pretty sure they just "disappeared". She didn't delete anything. She'll be here shortly to clarify.
