Customer's reviews and ratings
Great Product For Email REcovery I have lost all emails in one of my folders in Outlook Express. Because that folder had reached 2GB. Outlook Express can;t read emails in a folder which is larger than 2GB. I have tried 2 other programs first: Mail Navigator and Dbxtract. Both of them messed my attachments and formats of the email. Then I've tried this tool. And It worked great. I've restored all my emails back and the attachments.
Product wasted some minutes for restoring all corrupted items in OE.
Open the program tell it where the files to be recovered are and it is done quickly and easily.
The trial download verified that the emails were in fact still there and could be retrieved. It would not actually save anything unless the paid version was purchased. That however is told upfront. The paid version did work as advertised and did restore the emails, so I cannot fault the product as it did exactly what it claimed it could.
It recovered 1.6G emails from a damaged 2G inbox. I've followed their link and made purchase via PayPal. The registration code appeared in the web page immediately after payment. I have also received their email enclosing the registration code too. It take 20 mintues to scan a 2G dbx. The emails then can be read but not saved. Have to restart the software After purchase and take 20 mintues to scan the dbx again. Tried another freeware but can recover 80M from the 2G dbx only. OE recovery is worth the price. Some comments said can't receive registration code after payment but they in fact appear in the purchase web page and I can receive the email too.
It works, I recovered e-mails from 2 years ago which were lost due to OE crash. Straightforward to use, does not require expertise. No need to even to open the OE program itself! Ordering online instructions are somewhat confusing.
It saved over 200 emails with photo attachments for me! I installed it on my old Win98 computer. It was able to find and then recover over 200 emails that had photo attachments. These were in a corrupted folder that had important messages dating back to 2005. The trial version confirmed the messages still existed, so I registered the program to begin the recovery steps. It was well worth the price.
Only program to recover the .dbx files! I couldnt open my .dbx files that I had archived. But this program recovered the files!
