I'm sure this is easy, and I'm not in a panic (yet). I just deleted over 1,000 otherwise irrecoverable messages. Actually, I mistakenly attempted to run an Incoming Filter on all the messages in this folder and they disappeared!

I haven't done ANYTHING since!
These messages were in a nested "Sent" Folder.

I believe I simply close Barca, located and delete the Sent.idb file and restart Barca.

What I need is a confirmation this is the correct procedure.

Thanks,

fat fingers...

:!: If not yet reindexed, you could delete the idx-file.
Or else move your mdb-file elsewhere and rename the Sent.bak file to Sent.mdb and delete that idb-file.

To make sure not to lose any message, perform a backup.

See if that helps recovering those messages. :wink:

Yes, as Eric already pointed, it's the correct way to do it (delete or rename Sent.idb)

If too late already, also try locating Sent.~mbx folder kept as a backup on last compression of the folder (with appropriate settings) and renaming it to say SentRecovery.mbx and starting Barca, it will appear as SentRecovery folder.

No joy. It looks like they're all gone. I couldn't even import the backup; as soon as Barca closes, it performs a backup. Argh! That'll teach me.

Thanks for your help gents!

Sorry to hear that :(.

I'd recommend to implement a complete backup strategy for your computer, and use a specialized backup software. Eg. Cobian Backup works fine and is free, and you can have an all-in-one solution for all the data on your computer, instead of relying on the backup features of each software.

I'm a CIO in business. I KNOW BETTER! I just don't implement as well as I preach :-)

My last backup is 4 months old. I'm blushing all the time when I'm suggesting others to backup :oops:
