Our MS Exchange 5.0 server crashed a few days ago.
We now have a new server running Exchange 5.5 but
in the meantime my boss, who worked offline on his
laptop for a while, lost a lot of critical data when he
reconnected to his new mailbox on the new server
(we weren't aware of this issue at the moment).
The data is in an offline OST file which is 45 Mb in
size. I used the OST2PST utility to convert it to a PST
file (which is roughly the same size, so I assume his
data is still there). However, when I try to add this file
to his profile, there are only 3 empty folders in the
PST file hierarchy ('Boite d'envoi', 'Elments envoys'
and 'Elments supprims' - yes, this is a French
version - I suppose these translate as 'Outbox', 'Sent
messages' and 'Deleted messages', maybe?)
I don't know if this is important: we used Exchange
clients with the old 5.0 server, but have migrated all
workstations to Outlook when we installed the new
Is there a way to recover the missing data? We really
need to recover it.
Thanks in advance,
