I'm trying to wind down my days on my old XP. I had its original hard drive die. I replaced it with a refurbished one and got professional recovery from DriveSavers. On their advice I'm backing up the 500 GB Touro hard drive they sent me with the recovered data (which I've whittled down to about 65 GB or so) and about 35 GB more I've added. I'm trying to back up all that 100 GB of data to a 128 GB Lexar flash drive I got for $40. To copy the files I had to get a special freeware, Unstoppable Copier. It was going on for many hours yesterday. My system got pretty tight, and I had a very difficult shutdown of Outlook Express. Then about an hour later while closing down Maxthon browser I got a blue screen at the worst of times meaning I'd have to start all over on the backup. After the blue screen, after the next reboot I discovered a huge amount of fresh emails that had already downloaded to my Inbox were gone. I called my cable company and retrieved a fair number from their server, but an estimated 60 or so were not retrieved. There may have been valuable personal messages or highly valuable messages of another nature. Could they still be somewhere on my computer, maybe in Inbox.dbx? Do you think I could hunt them down with one of those data recovery softwares that are so abundant? If so which one has good tech support as well as being an effective program?

Hi, I use 2000 for one of my machines and Outlook Express 6 for emails. When I logged on today and started OE all my older emails were there but no new emails. So I closed out the program and started again. This time I got new emails but all my older ones disappeared! I closed out and tried again and the new ones disappeared too. The new ones have since returned but not the old ones. The weird thing is that it's only happening to emails in my main Inbox folder. All other email accounts/folders are fine. I tried Nortons Systemworks 2006 and CCleaner but no luck getting my old emails back. I remembered a program called ScanDBX that fixed a virus or some problem I had years ago. Is that worth trying? My antivirus (Avast) shows the machine virus-free. Please help. I'd hate to think I lost 1000's of emails. : (
