Hi there and welcome

Can you first tell me please which version of outlook you are using? And the version of windows?

I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you.

Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse.

I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps.

Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong.

If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me.

Thanks,

Richard

Good Morning Richard
Not good news!!! Zen say there is NO backup and they cannot retrieve my saved email files, address book, or anything other than the original details when the set up took place in 2009. The outlook is 2007 and Windows 10.
Any good to you?
Cheers ***** ***** Reid
Expert:  Richard replied 10 months ago.

That's disappointing of them Nigel...

They never made a backup on your computer, I checked for this yesterday, and with no backup on the server, then the data is lost sorry. You're not going to be able to restore it.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
OK, that's really p***ed me off, but many thanks for your help anyway.
