Lost email files
I had a downloader installed, (DAP), which integrated itself into Netscape. When I decided to stop using the downloader, it apparently removed my NS 7.3 version and replaced it with 7.2. But it also removed all my emails from the past year or so, including all folders and the address book and the bookmarks.
I think most of the information is still on the HD, and I think I could recover it, if I could find it. Is there a good tool for this? I have done some hex editing, including removing EOF markers, and if I could find the EOF for the current Mail folder, I hope I could get the files, even if some are corrupted. Is this possible?
I have run several programs finding lost directories and files, but I'm guessing since the new (old NS) version started a new mail folder, the beginning covers up the old directory markers and put new EOF markers in, too. But I have seen an indication that some of the text strings are on the HD. Most of them, however, seem to be in machine language.
Can anyone guide me to a program that can help?
Thanks for whatever you can do.
