Hi,

Basically I reformatted and reinstalled an os xp (quick format) and later found out that there were required outlook express 6.0 mail files  *.dbx on the hard drive. I have used get databack to restore the *.dbx files which was ok they seem to be the correct files going by the names of them but they were stored in temp folders temp internet files etc. So i recovered anyway and tried to import them into outlook express which will not recognize them. So I have began looking for a dbx repair tool i have tried advanced outlook express repair tool it says it recovers the messages but they are all 1 kb and nothing in them it successfully recovered 3 messages properly. Can anyone recommend other repair tools that i could use to repair ???

Thanks.

Outlook Express stores email messages in DBX files which are located in the

 %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{Identity-GUID}\Microsoft\Outlook Express\

If you recovered files from a different location, such as the "temp folders temp internet files etc." they may not be the correct files. That may be why you're having a problem recovering the actual messages.

Easily recover damaged or corrupted .dbx files. It incorporated advance algorithm to recover inbox, Outbox, calendars, contacts, drafts etc. See at: http://www.recoverydeletedfiles.com/outlook-express-recovery.html
