After several more or less corrected problems including loss of mails and numerous messages from "unknown" with subject "none" I finally decided not to use my 'mailstick' any longer.
Hopefully this decision is not too late and my latest problem can be resolved:
- My largest folder (received messages) has been replaced by a blank line in the folder selector. The blank line can be 'opened' as a folder, but contains no messages.
- The PMM that probably belongs to it (375 MB), cannot be copied to my harddrive (corrupted and unreadable).
- The accompanying PMI file is 0 bytes in size.
- Around the same time Pegasus started with all settings cleared. I solved that by replacing the corrupted PMAIL.INI with a back-up version.
I THINK this or similar porblem(s) may have occurred before. Twice before I have recovered errors on the stick bij having a Vista machine automatically do it. Now there are 2 maps called FOUND.000 and FOUND.001 that consist of a bunch of FILE????.CHK files. The former being of 296 kB size and the latter 108 MB ;(
I am reluctant to have Vista 'correct' the current problem, as this concerns my main mail folder.
Is there anyway I can get my folder back without any data loss?
Thanks in advance,
