Windows 7: Lost email messages in upgrade

Lost email messages in upgrade

I bought windows 7 professional because I wanted the xp option. I expected to keep all important stuff. Installation to upgrade Vista home premium required the installation to be full rather than upgrade. No warning was given that I would loose all my email contacts and messages. Is there any way to recover them?

Don't know how valuable your lost email messages may be to you, but if they were "really" important or valuable, you might consider this program by a Microsoft MVP who has been working on email problems for more than 10 years. Read about it, then decide if it's worth it to you: DBXpress

I had the same problem. I attemted my reapir immediately so I had better results than you probably will but anything that you recover is a plus. The app I used is called Recova and it got back abt 98% of my emails in correct format. Its easy to use and free.

Hope this helps
