From reading the various posts, I think the answer is NO, but before I give
up I want to ask a specific question.

I deleted a profile. I accidentally did not save the user files [didn't
check the box to save these files]. I WAS able to recover all the documents,
but I cannot find the emails from Earthlink Total Access. Elink support said
to find the mailbox using
c:\documents and settings\[windows logon name]\application data\
earthlink\6.0\username@mindspring.com\mailbox. However, the mailbox file is
not there. Earthlink emails are stored as elnkmail.mdb

Since I was able to recover the docs, any chance I can still recover the
emails? Thanks! mhoberman[remove this]@mindspring.com

The less you use the system before trying a recovery program the better
the chances of recovery.
