My new installation of Windows Live Mail Is Driving me bats.

by lakephillip / February 27, 2010 1:42 PM PST

I have Windows Live Mail installed on Win7 x64.....after I exported my saved mail in Windows Live Mail format, I re-imported the saved mail. There is a folder called "recovered items". I have deleted it several times from the Windows Live Mail Pane, and I have traced to Windows Live folder, and manually delete it, but everytime I start up Windows Live Mail that folder has returned. I have had several installtions of Windows Live Mail on several computers, even my previous installation of Windows 7, and never had this "Revovered Items" folder that keeps on coming back. I would rather not have to uninstall and re-import my saved mail again, unless I absolutley have to. I could ignore it, but I would like to know why? Any ideas?
