I feel, most probably your compression itself didn't go correctly.
I thought we all checked the compressed content for integrity before deleting the original.

Indeed, for all important material, the best practice is to unzip the zipped file once before deleting the original uncompressed file. Ah well, we live, we learn.

Not required exactly, one can always mark the "Test Archived files" and it can be done automatically.

However, recovery from RAR files is actually very typical tasks specially when the RAR compressed file contains another compressed file like .pst or .mdb

Do post up results and procedure, if succeeded anyhow.

Did you do a quick format or the normal slow format. If you did a quick format then the data is still there on the HDD. That data can be recovered by using any data recovery software.

But if you have done a normal slow format then there is no hope.

Edit: Then nothing can be done.

It's not going to be easy, you got to try various tools to get it back. Wish I had that rar file to help you out. Going forward always archive ur mails after it reaches 600 to 800 MB. I do a backup every 3 months.

Try this

.RAR fixer

There are software available using which you can recover data from formatted partition. Google it. I found one Recover files from formatted hard drive/disk and partition. Hard Disk Format Recovery, Unformat software.
