Location of Deleted E-Mails by Gene L.
I inadvertently deleted several E-Mail messages some time ago and was wondering if they might still be accessible somewhere on my C-Drive. I am using 2007 Office Outlook and Windows Vista Home Premium. Where might I look to determine if they are still there. I would like to know the path if that is the way to look. Many thanks for the help. Gene L.

Can't open word docs, excel or other files by Bronze[_2_]
When I click on a file to open on C drive (or an attachment to an email" it says Windows can find (lists the path). Make sure you typed the name correctly then try again. If I cancel this message and double click on the file (or email attachment) again, it then opens it. I have to do this twice for every single file I want to open. Does anyone have a solution? Thanks

Problem opening existing files by clicking by smuthler
My computer has begun giving me an error message when I try to double-click on a filename, in Word and in Excel, particularly. It says "Window cannot find 'C:Users\Steve\AppData..." and then states "Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again." It really cramps my ability to access files on my computer at work, from home... Any thoughts? Steve

DACLs for offline files by Ryjek Blady
Is there a way to retrieve DACLs for offline files (client-side cached) when the client is not connected to the server? When I call GetSecurityInfo or GetNamedSecurityInfo for such files, the call returns ERROR_NOT_SUPPORTED (50). Similarly, those files have no "Security" tab in the Properties dialog. I looked at the Offline Files COM APIs...

How to get files out of subfolders? by anh
Two file management situations I'd like help with: 1) I have dozens of files in many subfolders within a particular folder. I'd like to get the files out of those subfolders and put them all in the root folder without having to go into each folder and move them myself, but I can't quite see how to do that in Windows Explorer. Does anyone know a smart way to do this? 2) A similar case that...

Hello, I have a file on my desktop named Fitzgerald -. I do not know where it came from. This is no surprise given that my daughter uses the PC under my login from time to time. The file size is 0 bytes. The properties security tab says "The requested security information is either unavailable or cannot be displayed". The attributes info is "A" (don't know what that means). I can move...

Can't create New Folders on Desktop by Daydream
Hi, When I right-click on the desktop or within the Documents Folder (or similar folders), I no longer have the option to create a "New Folder". When I choose the "New" option, it reads "empty". I saw someone had a similar problem on here and they were given a registry fix to download and merge, which I did, but it did not help me. When I am in the Documents Folder, I do have the "Organize"...
