    Lost folders


    in my email section on the left side there are folders that i have created along with folders such as archives ,
    probably about 12 folders with saved emails in them ,photos /receipts. and so on. at least there where.
    now they have all vanished.( i mean the contents) and i find that when i save something to any folder
    it vanishes soon after, how long it stays in i don't know.this has been going on for about a month ,at least,
    that's when i first noticed it. can anyone tell me what has caused this . i would be very greatful

    Folder in Favorites lost


    Had a folder in IE favorites named xxxxx favorites with many items in it. Don't know what I may have done but it is gone from the list. When I try to create a new folder it tells me that there is one already there, but it is not. Any suggestion where I might find the lost folder or how to restore it.
