You all know I have been having computer problems. When I lost ALL photos from after 2/18/2011 through Jan. 2013 I decided to ask the above named company if the also backed up e-mails and contacts. the answer was yes. So a very nice lady from Lew is ton, ME has my system in the process of restoring my e-mails and contacts and all my missing photos. She is restoring to Feb 28 which should be all my important e-mails. I am not going to get excited until I see the end result.

I have used this service for many years.  I've also turned on plenty of clients to it.  I've seen several clients have to completely restore all their stuff.  It's a complete life-saver and I wouldn't even think about not having it.  I could not function if I lost even a month's worth of info.  With this service, the first backup takes forever and after that they only back-up things new or changed.  Best money spent!

I thought it backed up everything. Did you have the right settings checked?  Don't they guarantee their services?  I know lots of folks who use them. Personally I do not, but I religously back up my entire computer at least once a month to 2 external drives.

They DO but I did not realize that. I thought e-mail was a different entity. Live and learn. I will never go through this again. I now know to just tel them to restore all. It does take forever though. I am just doing e-mail (a ton of it I admit) and 2 years of photos and there is still 20 hours estimated time left. Probably the speed of my system that I cannot control.

As I add something to my documents or files, it does an auto back-up. That I knew but as isaid, did not know about the part I was trying to save - e-mail and contacts.

That's why I have another service (Crash Pl.) that essentially backs up all my photos, music and documentation. The stuff I'm afraid to lose.

Good luck! Hope you get everything back.

My brother had his Hotmail e-mail account hacked a couple of years ago. He had stored years of important e-mails in folders there. The hacker changed his password so he couldn't get into his own account, and he lost everything. E-mail is one of the hardest things to keep backed up.

I will let you know how it worked out. I had my ads that were sent electronically in a folder - among other things. DH is in NEED of a print of a photo sent in an email as well as a print of a motorcycle from a photo file that is gone unless this restores it. Crossing fingers. Next time,I will just have the whole thing restored- DUH! Isn't that what I am paying for? Just did not know it backed up the Out look stuff too
