    Default ... a few questions ...

    Hi Suzy,

    What email software do you use to collect mail or do you simply use Tiscali's web mail to view your email online?

    Are you logged on with the correct account to your PC (if you have multiple accounts - the reason I ask is that maybe your son has one and you have one)?

    You did have a backup didn't you?

    Get back to me and I'll see if I can help further. You can either reply back in here of PM me.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Mr P Cannop,

    A system restore won't make any difference. It doesn't affect personal data such as email. That's assuming Suzy uses a local mail app (such as Outlook or Outlook Express). If she's using some sort of webmail, then it again won't make any difference.

    We need more info from Suzy.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Mr P Cannop,

    System Restore doesn't restore any personal data (ie. files or folders including Word documents, email, spreadsheets, music etc. etc.). That's what a backup is for

    Suzy, see earlier message regarding what app you're using. Can't help you get something back if I don't know what kind of things you've lost!

    Hi there Blueivy, I just use Tiscali's web mail to view my emails, and use the folders beside it to store thing in.

    Default ... so it's web mail

    Hi Suzy,

    If you are using webmail then the information isn't stored on your PC but on Tiscali's servers (as you probably know). Depending on how it's been setup you may be able to get it back, but it's Tiscali's responsibility (as the data sat on their server).

    I'd contact Tiscali and see what they say. There may be a good reason (or not) as to why the data is gone, but at least you will know. That's one advantage of using Outlook or Outlook Express - at least you can back it up and be responsible for it.

    May sound like an obvious question, but have you checked the waste basket / recycle bin (or whatever Tiscali call it) in case all the email is sitting in there?

    Sorry it's not better or more helpful news.
