Restoring accidentally deleted PMs?

Post by reiko321 » Wed Jan 22, 2014 7:44 pm

Hello Moderators and/or site Gurus!!

I was clearing out my oldest messages and I accidentally deleted my fifty newest received by mistake. Is there a way I could have them restored, please? The dates would be from January 9th, 2014 through today January 22nd, 2014.

Thanks in advance!!

From what I remember from another post asking about this, once they are gone they are gone. Nothing can be done.

Rut-Roh.

Well... at least I still have my sent mail as an emergency archive. I can go as far as to respond to those posts with myself as the recipient to get them back into my inbox but I would much prefer a magic-wand style approach if its available.

Thanks.

Send a note to PLARZ.. he is the Admin who might be able to assist ..

2+2=5 for sufficiently large values of 2.

If you don't have your Location listed in your User Control Panel, why not take a second and update it? It will let your trading partners know where you are from the beginning.

I use the Unofficial Porkuslime Trading Guidelines - if you have way less refs.. you ship first.

Folks I am awaiting a ref from.. Zack

Also, as a temporary measure, you can check your sent messages for details of transactions that you need immediately. Sometimes they will be in there.

Thanks for the speedy responses, folks.

Yeah, I know I have my sent mail as a (hopefully) stop-gap. I will reach out to PLARZ and see if I can get 'em back.

For the most part, once PMs have been deleted, they're gone. If you're lucky, the person who sent them has them in their sent box, and I can restore those messages. If those are gone though, they're toast.
