Deleted all my Outlook PST files, I can't recover them?

After making a full scan today, I choosed "disinfect" for my .pst file, because I don't wanted to "delete" them. That was a huge misunderstanding, since it seems to me, that ad-aware deleted and shredded those files, instead of "disinfecting" them.

I want to recover my .pst outlook files, but I can't, even with Piriform Recuva. I miss all my business emails, contacts, calendars, acount settings etc. from those files that were at those locations:

C:\Users\My user\Documents\Outlook Files\myfirstemail.pst

C:\Users\My user\Documents\Outlook Files\mysecondemail.pst

E:\Users\My user\Documents\Outlook Files\mythirdemail.pst


Those huge files are not in the quarantine nor in the wastebin, I checked many times, they are realy deleted and shredded. Please help me on the recovery of those files or give me at least some advice.

    Hi Friend,

    If you don’t have backup, then most probably there is no chance to revert back those data. But once I will recommend you to perform a repair on the PST file.

    One more question, Are you using Outlook with an exchange?

    If yes, then there are probability to recover emails with the help of Dumpster feature within Exchange. But keep in mind you can only recover the emails which comes under the retention period. Emails and related items which has been crossed the limit of Retention period can not be recovered.

    If you are using Outlook standalone:

    SysTools PST Recovery software can help in this kind of risky situation where data is more important for you. This tool does not only deal with corruption issues or errors of PST files, It also recovers the hard deleted (permanently deleted) & soft deleted emails of MS-Outlook. Along with recovery, it provides an advance feature to save the recovered data into various email client format for like PST, EML & MSG for user convenience.

    As the above comments of Experts describing that emails are gone forever and now switching on third party utility is the last hope to get back the data.

    Note: If you are connected with any web based email account, then just configure a new account and it will automatically download all the data.
