Windows Live mail missing mails


Aug 27, 2011
Hi guys.

I am hitting a blank here. Right so a friend is using Windows Live mail (I know horrible), and he has managed to delete his account settings in an attempt to get his mail working again
In the process his mails have gone missing.
I have imported the mail folder under User>AppData>Local>Microsoft>Windows Live mail, but all the mails there are either old or very oddly recently deleted.

Now I have tried searching for .EML files, which does give me MANY hits but none that look to be recent.

He is on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Anyone have ideas?
