    For future reference it's better to look in Restore Points using ShadowExplorer than to run the restore point, for data. If it's some system problem keeping things from running right, that's another matter. But once you run the restore point, you've overwritten the files on the live system. Chances of getting it back are reduced.

    It's worth it to pick up a USB 2.0 external drive for copying data and system image backups. There are several free backup programs that can help you recover from disaster. Also many of the image backup programs let you mount a system image to a drive letter. If I permanently delete a file sometimes I can bail myself out by mounting my last image backup and just copying that file out to the HD.

    Macrium Reflect and Easus ToDo backup free versions both have that feature (and probably several other programs I don't know about.)

    None of the restore lost data programs shows emails.

    If this does not work and you tried shadow explorer, Im afraid that the old Widows Mail 2006, was not current enough to work properly

    Great... this is what came with my computer that I bought around that time. Since then I've increased my memory and the computer still works great so can't see buying a new one. Is there an upgrade for the email program?

    Now I'm worried about my other email folders... is there a way to save them to a flash drive or something?

    Yes you can import and export (save), as shown in an earlier post.
    There are many free email services. Many like Thunderbird, you may just want to the most current of Windows Mail
