Help my email, calender appts and contacts have disappeared

Not open for further replies.


After removing some ram and putting it back in and then rebooting my computer - the computer froze. I then did a hard reboot and everything went sucessfully. When I turned the computer on this morning it asked to start outlook in safe mode which i said no to.

Outlook would not boot up as it couldn't find my pst file. I have since located my pst file but all of the data has disappeared - emails, contacts and scheduling.

I have tried everything and read everything but can't find the information

Could anyone help as of course all that info is very important and no i haven't done a recent back up (I have a back up from a year ago)

sorry i forgot to mention it's outlook 2003

please help

what type of email account do you use? Are you sure you are looking in the correct pst?

The default location for the pst is %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook - copy and paste it in the address bar of windows explorer and press enter to open to the default location. do you have more pst there and how big are the files?
