Q:My Outlook Express emails have been recovered. But photos and other attached files stay damaged and cannot be opened


You need to disable the recovery of deleted messages.

To do this:

  1. Open the Tools | Options menu
  2. Uncheck the Recovering Deleted e-mails option

Our Outlook Express message recovery tool can recover deleted emails. However, around 0.8% of data from emails will be lost, as Outlook Express permanently erases parts of messages when deleting them.
