I have used the site many times over the years to solve my problems but now I have one that I need serious help with.
A lttle while ago I had a bad virus attack that was proving particularly difficult to remove. After days of scans trying different programmes without luck my friend said it would be quicker to format and re-install everything so this is what we did. We backed up all the documents and pictures HOWEVER by this time my brain was pretty foggy and I forgot about all the emails that I had in outlook. I formatted not only important business contacts and emails but also priceless family stuff too!!
I realised my stupidity when reinstalling windows so before I installed all of my other software I desperately looked into data recovery software. Using 'O&O Disc Recovery' I managed to recover a .PST file just under 1.5gb and also 4X .DBX files totalling 218mb.
I have reinstalled Outlook but now what do I do? If I try to open the recovered PST file it opens O&O and if I try to open the DBX files it's asking for a programme to open with??
Can anyone please help me get my mail back?
