My screen sort of "flashes" and stops my typing and everything freezes for a half a sec. This is quite annoying. It happens every 5- 15 secs when outlook is open.
Here is a little background on the issue.
So my external HD was getting full and it had all of these old backups on it, I went to delete some and then outlook was not working properly. I 1st wasn't able to even open outlook, but then it prompted me to select some files (I really don't know what I did here) and then it opened. When it opened all of my sub folders were gone and all of my emails that are older than 2 weeks are gone as well.
I thought that the external HD was just for backups, I had no idea that it was used for outlook as well. The files that were deleted were labeled "Back up set" so I thought that it was just an old back up. The file was around 45 gb, there were 2 other back up sets that totaled about 300 gb, I thought that I would be safe deleting the smaller one and go from there but I was not.
I use file scavenger to recover the files, but I don't know what I am doing with these files. The files that I need are not all in 1 convient folder labeled "Back up Set".
I had tons of info that was lost and I was hoping that someone here would be able to help me get this back together. I would just hate to have just lost all of that info...
I tried opening outlook and went to file, then open, then selected one of the recovered pst files and it said that this file is not a personal folder. I don't know why it didn't work, the file extension was .pst.
Out of the 60 or so pst files that were recovered only one worked and it didn't recover any data (that I noticed)
