I am using Outlook 2007 on Windows XP SP3.
I am having a problem with my Outlook datafile: Its completely disapeared!
Last night I used Outlook, everything ok, this morning I used Outlook again, everything OK, then I started a Full System Virus scan (Kaspersky Internet Security 2010) whcih ran for 4 hours before I went again into Outlook (scan had not yet finished) when Outlook popped up a message telling me that "The file C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst cannot be found".
I started a full system search (including system and hidden files/folders), which turned up nothing. I went to the C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\ folder and checked: nothing there. I checked the Scan log, it showed no record of a file being a deleted.
I then tried 6 File Recovery Programs all of which turned up nothing.
I tried some of these Outlook Datafile Recovery Programs whcih turned up nothing.
Typically, I had not bothered to backup the Datafile since April.
I am at my wits end.
Does anyone know how I can recover the Datafile?
