Windows 7: Windows Live email?

Windows Live email?

I'm using windows Live email and I lost all my saved emails which were serveral hundred. I had a folder in the same root as my Inbox with sub folders and now they are gone. I would like to make a folder on the root directory of my hard drive and save them to that so this does not happen again. I have 3 hard drives so every couple of days I can just copy them over to the other 2 hard drives so this really can not happen again. What a nightmare. How can I do this?

Lets try to restore the past, before we worry about the future. Go to backup and restore, in search by staart menu. Then go back to a point prior to your loss, you will be restored and whole again. Either way let us know and we will go to the next step.

It shouldn't be any more difficult that copying a particular folder to another location manually.

You'd have to research to find out exactly where that mail program stores mail on your PC. It may be somewhere under C users yourusername appdata.

Once you locate that folder, you could easily automate the backup process.

As far as doing a restore I have put a lot of things on the computer and I can live without the email but I would like a more sercure place for my emial. I make a saved folder but I have no Idea where that folder is at because properties won't tell me just the email itself but not the folder.

You can export mail to another drive under drop down menu.
