To recover AOL mail data.
To recover AOL mail data that has been saved on your computer, follow the steps below:
- First things first, log in to your AOL using your screen name and make sure that AOL isn’t running.
- Now explore your computer for a file that starts with your ‘screen name’ and ends with ‘.abi’.
- Now, depending on the version of AOL you are using, either go up one directory to the ‘C_America Online 9.0’ folder or go up one directory from the ‘organize’ folder.
- You need to rename the organize folder to ‘organize.save’.
- Again, go up to another directory and in a new windows explorer window, search for the folder containing the backup copy of the file.
- Now, highlight the backup organize folder and press CTRL+ C.
- Switch back to AOL window and highlight the ‘C_America online 9.0’ folder and press CTRL+ V.
- Now log on to AOL and check if the data files have been recovered.
