Blueyonder email back up?

Hello all,

I've recently upgraded to windows 10 and with that my previous hard drive has been scrubbed. Now I'm realising that all the .pst and .ost files are gone. When I sign into outlook nothing populates.

Is there any kind of backup VM offers for this or am I royally boned?

Kind regards

Hello

Are you still a virginmedia customer ?

Are the emails in webmail at https://my.virginmedia.com/my-apps/email/mailbox ?

I am afraid that Virginmedia do not backup emails that is your responsibility, have you setup outlook  to use the account ? You can find instructions of how to do this at https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-media-configure-email-settings.

How was it scrubbed; if not well the data maybe recoverable?

Hello all and thanks for your input.

The virgin media sign in shows some emails but not the bulk of them. It's not something I could continue with unfortunately. 

I had formatted the drive. I've spent a good 15 hours working on data recovery and although I found the .pst files. They were sized at 256kb and seemed to be corrupt. Which isnt great.

At this point I dont actually think theres another means of fixing this mistake

Some of the emails are within his virgin media account but there was a good few that I believe stored locally in a .psd file within his computer

 

Kind regards

if they are not in the webmail they won't be backed up.

I didn't think they would be but just needed someone to pat me on the shoulder and tell me "I'm F*cked"

 

Appreciate your time all the same

Kind regards
