    Does not work. I did not put anything in the “Office Documents” file. Somehow, my important files were there. I attempted to move all files from that folder to the correct folder and lost 16 pages of messages. Tried to delete the contents of the Office Documents file and could not. Can anyone help?

    Does not work. I did not put anything in the (Hotmail) β€œOffice Documents File.” Somehow, my important files were there. (The Office Documents File is a feature I would like to delete.) I attempted to move all files from the OFFICE DOCUMENTS FILE to the correct folder and lost 16 pages of messages. Tried to RETRIEVE the contents of the deleted “Office Documents File” and could not. Can anyone help?

    So there is no way at all to recover emails once they have been permanently deleted out of the system?

    I have emails from 2-3 years back that I realize I need, and when I recovered my deleted emails it didn’t go anywhere close to those emails.

    Its funny because they say once something is out in cyberspace, its there forever, especially when its not convenient. Now I need to find some emails deep in the debts of cyberspace, and now I cant find them πŸ˜›
