    Where are the outlook mails located

    I have 2 questions about Outlook 2003:

    1 - where are the mails from Outlook 2003 in the hard drive?
    2 - How to restore them if they were put in the trash?

    Thank you

    1. C: \ Documents and Settings \ username \ Local Settings \ Application Data \ Microsoft \ Outlook

    2. Windows Recycle Bin? Outlook does not go through the windows trash. You have a folder "Deleted Items" in Outlook. If the deleted mails have been deleted from that folder you can not recover them.

    If you have created backup copies of your Outlook .pst files, you're well prepared for disaster. Restoring lost mail, contacts, calendar or other data from the backup copy is easy in Outlook.

    Restore Outlook Mail, Contacts and Other Data from a Backup
    To restore your mail, contacts and other data from a backup copy of an Outlook PST file:
    1. Select File | Import and Export... from the menu in Outlook.
    2. Select Import from another program or file.
    3. Click Next.

    How to: Recover Deleted Emails in Outlook for FREE
    When you delete an email in Outlook – it really isn’t deleted; it’s only “marked” for deletion. It’s only until you “compact” your PST file that your email is permanently erased, and the empty space is reclaimed.

    Outlook’s Inbox Repair Tool (ScanPST.exe) can diagnose and repair errors in your PST file. If the file is not corrupt, it does some minor clean-up – but if the file IS corrupt it also reverts all objects to “not deleted.”

    So we’ll first need to “corrupt” our PST file to have ScanPST reclaim our “deleted” emails. [NOTE: I'm not including detailed instructions. If you're not comfortable please ask someone to help you.]

    1) Locate and backup your Outlook PST file

    2) From the Command Prompt type what’s in bold (not the hyphens "-")

    DEBUG C:\fullpath\OutlookFile.PST
    - f 107 113 20
    - q

    3) Now that you’ve “corrupted” your PST file run ScanPST (usually found in C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\1033)

    4) Once ScanPST completes, your deleted emails will be restored.
