Deleted emails showing up in Vista search, but says file is not there…

Hi! I am trying to track down about 4 emails that were deleted from the inbox (put into the deleted folder) and then the .pst file got deleted. I can see the emails when I type in the Vista search bar, but when I click to open them, it will not and says that the file cannot be found. I have looked all over the place, but have not been able to find the .pst file or .ost file, so I am assuming that they got deleted as well and emptied out of the trash bin.

Software/Hardware used:
Windows Vista, Outlook 2007

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If the deleted items was emptied, you can try to see if its’ in your “Recover Deleted Items”. If your e-mail was hard deleted, then you would need to enter the following registry entry to provide the “Recover Deleted Items” to those other special folders like Inbox, Sent Items, etc.

Start Registry Editor.
Locate and then click the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\Client\Options
On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
Value name: DumpsterAlwaysOn
Data type: DWORD
Value data: 1
Close Registry Editor.
