Similar thing happened to me too. Aol 9.0. Suddenly all of my saved email on my pc disappeared. I looked at the organize folder and my screenname (without extension) was there and was over 125 megs. Obviously , the data was still in there. I tried to copy the file and replace it into another organize folder onto another pc running aol and this didn't work. I tried to do the same with the backup folder without success. I upgraqded to aol 9.0 VR without success and I restored windows to an earlier date without help. I restored the pfc file through aol and this didn't work. My file is still there and its huge but no way to access it. Does anyone have a solution? I am willing to pay top dollar and take the laptop to forensics but I (a newbee) don't know any around here. Any suggestions?
I just downloaded aol9.1 and the same thing happend to me. I spent an hour on the phone with an aol tech rep and we could not retrieve my 2100 saved emails to my PC file cabinet.
I did a resore and got back to my previous aol optmised but no saved emails!!! I had a back up of by C drive and restored the aol from that hard drive but no emails. I found the organize file and there is my file but how do I open it. This is crazy. The aol tech said this is happening in the thousands. Does anybody know what program will open this file???
