Hi guys,

I was doing a compaction of my dbx files in outlook express 6.0. I believe my pc might have rebooted and now when I go back in, my personal folders are all gone.

I've renamed the folder.dbx and restarted but still they are not showing up. I have like 10 - 15 personal folders and none show up at all. Each are varying in size .. I tried to import and I get an error saying store folder in use please close out.

Does anyone have any ideas?
