“I am using Outlook from long ago, recently I found very difficulty while searching for few emails that had important attachments. So, I started to create different folders by giving appropriate names in order to avoid conflicts. After that, I started to move emails to respective folders. But, unexpected power loss while moving emails lead to abnormal termination of Outlook. After some time when I restarted the system to continue with the work, I was shocked!!! Since, emails which were transferring at that time got vanished from Outlook. Each and every mails, which I was moving prior to power loss was essential for me!! As of now I don’t have any idea what happened and anybody know where I can found those missing emails?”
