Using DataNumen Outlook Express Drive Recovery to Recover Emails
 
 

As long as you have stored Outlook Express data on your drive or disk, then for whatever reason you cannot retrieve or access your Outlook Express data, you can always use DataNumen Outlook Express Drive Recovery to recover Outlook Express emails from the drives or disks for you. The recovered messages are saved as .eml files that can be easily imported back to Outlook Express.

 
Note: AS SOON AS THE DATA DISASTER HAPPENS ON YOUR OUTLOOK EXPRESS DATA LOCATED IN THE SOURCE DRIVE OR DISK, PLEASE DO NOT WRITE OR CHANGE ANY DATA ON THAT DRIVE OR DISK ANY MORE. DOEDR WILL ONLY READ DATA FROM THAT DRIVE OR DISK AND WILL NEVER WRITE OR CHANGE ANY DATA ON IT!
Step 1 Start DataNumen Outlook Express Drive Recovery
Note: Before recovering Outlook Express emails with DataNumen Outlook Express Drive Recovery, please close Outlook Express.
Step 2

If the logical drive where your Outlook Express dbx files are original stored still exists and its size or location has not been changed yet, then please select that drive to be scanned:

Select source drive

Otherwise, if the logical drive does not exist any more, due to re-partition of the disk, lost of the MBR or partition information, or any other reasons, or the logical drive is resized or relocated with partition tools such as Partition Magic, then you should set the whole hard disk storing the dbx files as the source disk to be scanned:

Select source disk

If you plug-in or out a removable disk to your computer after DataNumen Outlook Express Drive Recovery is launched, then you can click the Refresh button to refresh the drive and disk list in the combo box.

Step 3

Please select the output folder:

Select Output Folder

All the recovered emails will be saved as .eml files in the output folder. You can input the output folder name directly or click the Browse for Output Folder button to browse and select the folder.

Note:
TO PREVENT OVERWRITING YOUR OUTLOOK EXPRESS DATA ON THE SOURCE DRIVE OR DISK, PLEASE DO NOT SELECT AN OUTPUT FOLDER ON THE SOURCE DRIVE OR DISK.
Step 4

Click the "Start Recovery" button, and DataNumen Outlook Express Drive Recovery will start scanning the selected drive or disk, and recovering emails from it. Progress bar will indicate the recovery progress.

After the recovery process, if any messages have been recovered from the drive or disk successfully, you will see a message box like this:
