Revive outlook express *.idx folder

By edudley ·
For some reason one of my users lost one of her outlook express folders. I found it in the directory and tried to import back into outlook. The folder showed back up but not the messages. Is there a way to get the messages back. The file is 176 kb so it should have something in it

Open the directory that the folder files are stored. You should find there two files with almost the same names. On will have a [1] after the filename. The one without the [1] should be the original folder file and the [1] should be the new (empty) folder. Make sure Outlook express is closed and then delete the new file and rename the old file same as the new file was. Open Outlook express and you should have the folder back with messages. If you have any problems, email me at knurmia@hotmail.com
