Managed to destroy my email folder!!! Let me explain

I am not saving my emails to the regular folder but lets say to C:\Emails

After re-installed WinXP and SP2 RC2 i wanted to setup my email account, so i fired up new Outlook Express went to the Maintence tab, changed the store folder to the backup folder (C:\Emails) but...no warning message came up. that Outlook express found another Outlook files...

I thought ok, it should recognize them automatically but instead...IT DELETED ALL MY FILES (sorry for the caps)...No warning nothing, i used undelete software but lost all my send/deleted items, this is what we call night mare, be warned!!!

I have tried the same procedure like two times and had the same results, Outlook Express won't notify me that there are other Outlook express files

quite unfortunate thanks for the heads up.
another reason why to stay away from sp2 for now, no telling what else it can screw up

As I said when the first postings were made about SP2.

You need to wait until about 3 months after SP2 is released then get all the
PATCHES for SP2 that it creates... then everything should be fine...

Another problem with SP2. If you have a Pinnacle PCTV card (including the Rave, Stereo and Pro) the chances are that it will fail under SP2. Either you get a message that the hardware failed to initialise when you try loading the PCTV software, or the pointer will display its busy mode for a few seconds but the program doesn't appear. Occasionally it will work immediately after booting into Windows, but then if you close the program and try to load it again, it will just give an error.

This has been known to happen to a lesser degree with SP1, but SP2 renders the card virtually useless. I'm back to using Win2k Pro SP4 now, and everything works fine.
