The operating system I use is Windows XP Professional version 2002 service pack 3. The anti virus I use is ‘Avast!’ which seems to update daily. Outlook has been failing and saying it has to close several times but I am assuming that is not connected to my present problem.
It was the end of the day and I synchronised Outlook with my Nokia 6300 (which is a regular event) and now I have discovered this problem I am aware that the details of the last sync did show a high level of amendments.
I am now looking for those with greater knowledge than me to give me clues as to why it happened, how to fix it and (if possible) how to get the information back again. I will, of course, supply any further information necessary.
I do have a continuous file back up on an external Buffalo hard drive using Memeo software.
