Windows 7: I lost all the letters in Outlook Express, and have no backup.

27 Oct 2014   #1

Windows 32 bit
I lost all the letters in Outlook Express, and have no backup.

I lost all emails in the Outlook Express. Everything happened very suddenly. Simply turn on the PC. opened an Outlook Express and saw that there were no letters. Thought it was a glitch. But did not find them in the recycle bin even. Hoping that it's because of the compression, but the recycle bin is empty. But no, I did not find the any files. Backup also does not exist. Although I do backups.
I come to the conclusion that this is someone's bad joke or revenge for something. Please tell me how to recover this emails. I'm afraid I can not do it without help.

First do not use the computer more than necessary. As you use it, becomes more difficult to find the mail
Download Shadow Explorer.
It is a system restore for your personal stuff.

Poor Lost Outlook Express
Does Windows 7 have an email program that is the equivalent of the old Outlook Express (which I truly liked far more than what I'm trying to use now)? I know they have Outlook but that is not only a business program but it costs. Thank you.
