Oops! Accidentally deleted my Archive email folder in WLM

I created an Archive folder for my important emails. But accidentally deleted it. Are my emails gone forever? They're not in my deleted email folder

You can get them back with back up and restore

Dont worry, if that does not work, we can download recuva software to help. The important thing, dont use the computer until we find those documents.

Hi.
I couldn't see the RESTORE button in W7 backup and restore (see pic). So I tried Recuva, both standard and advanced, but I think they must have been overwritten. Still it's been a lesson learned, thankyou.

PS,
would they be on the system image stored on an external HDD that I created about a week ago. Or are they gone from the server?

Also if they are on the system image, can I cherry pick them out or do I have to overwrite my c drive with the system image?

System image is the last step
Go to search and type back up and restore. See if you can get it back that way.

Thanks,
Each time you answer my question I try to give you some reputation. But each time it tells me I need to spread some around first. But you're the only one who answers my questions!!!

They are trying to prevent frineds, from just repping each other. You have to give to 15 before you give to me again. That being said, what I would like. in lieu of more rep, is a big smiley and TY after we get your mail back.
