My Outlook data files...

My Outlook data files are missing.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue?

It must have happened yesterday as I haven't been able to get into my e-mail today. Molly

Technician's Assistant: How do you access your email most often? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

On a laptop using an Outlook Icon. I can't even access it my tablet. I don't use the tablet very often.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

The Outlook e-mail one. It tells me where I can find backups, but those files are empty also.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

No. But is there a file I can download?
