I moved the pst file(size is 600M) from C: to D:, Then I changed the path of

archive file in outlook2007(Click file menu, click archive, click browse

button, and select the pst file in D drive). Then I did 'Archive' with a

earlier date(2006-6-1). Then then I couldn't find the original email :( . But

the size of this pst file still was 600M. So, how can I restore the original

email? I have tried the scanpst tool. But the problem was not fixed. Can

anyone out there help me?

Each folder can have an individually-specified archive PST. Check the

properties of the folder from which the messsage was removed. RIght-click

that folder, choose Properties, select the AutoArchive tab and see if a

different PST is specified.

If that doesn't pan out, open the folder Outlook uses as the default folder

for PST creation and see if another PST was created there.

Did you restart Outlook after changing the Archive PST location but before

trying the Archive process?

Hi,

have you considered using one of the search plug-ins for Outlook, e.g.

'lookeen' (http://www.lookeen.net)? It may be helpful with your problem.

You can add more search attributes and specifically define where to

search, in multiple .pst files or archives at one for example.

Well, maybe it can help you as it was helpful to me. Sometimes I did

find more without the integrated Outlook search :)

Ok good luck, Pat

By using a 3rd part data-recover tool called Advanced Outlook Repair,

you can find your original mail easily.You can download a free demo

version at http://www.datanumen.com/aor/aor.exe . I think it is a

useful repair tool for you. It is easy to recover your PST file by

using its wizard. It is a powerful tool to recover messages, folders

and other objects from corrupt or damaged Microsoft Outlook PST

files.

Detailed information about Advanced Outlook Repair can be found at
