Hi wpollock1276
What you are suggesting is technicaly impossible , you have accomplished an irreversible operation . There is a tiny possibility you could retrieve your overwritten files by using this recovery program : http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/index.htm
It's not free but very efficient . Note : overwritten files are hardly impossible to recover . Warning : please , do not attempt to delete whatever is currently on the drive or / and do not format it .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

    In My Computer Disk drive E - one of folder using earlier, now iam not find the same folder file. If i create in the same name folder showing the error message contains.... the existing file already...


    you just accidentally hide your newly created folder. go to tools it in your upper view. click the folder options. > view > click the show hidden files and folders > and also unchecked the hide protected operating system file (Recommended). after that you will see the folder that you create. im sure virus and trojans are responsible for that.

    Need to save and transfer all e-mails to a new computer


    First of all, I assume that all the email account settings have already been setup within Outlook on the new computer (as you have been using Outlook on the new computer successfully to send and receive email).

    If you want to transfer your files you will need to copy the Outlook PST file from your old computer to your new computer.
    To find the location of the PST file, open Outlook on the old computer and in the left-hand pane you should see a listing of all your email folders, with the root heading being “Personal Folders”. This is your Personal Folders PST file which contains all your email.
    1. Right-click on the “Personal Folders” heading and select “Properties”.
    2. In the Properties window that appears for Personal Folders, click the “General” tab and the “Advanced” button.
    3. In the next window that appears there should be a field called “Filename”. This denotes the location of the PST file which contains all the email and folders within your Personal Folders PST file. Write down the location of the PST file and then click “Cancel” twice to close the two open windows. (It should be someting like C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.pst)
    4. Open Windows Explorer or My Computer and navigate to the location of your PST file. Be aware, you may need to enable the display of hidden files and folders to see the path to the PST file, as it might be a hidden path. To do this, go to the “Tools” menu > “Folder Options”. In the window that appears, click the “View” tab and enable “Show hidden files and folders” then click OK to save and close.
    5. Once you have located the PST file you can confirm that the file is correct by looking at the size of the PST file – it should be quite large - mine is about 1.2 GB!
    6. Copy this file to a USB hard drive or USB stick if you have one that can hold the size.
    7. Once the file has been copied to the USB hard drive, disconnect the USB hard drive from your old computer and then connect it to the new computer.
    8. Copy the PST file to a memorable location, such as the desktop (this is only temporary, and this PST file will be removed once the email transfer has been completed).
    9. Now it is time to import the contents of the old PST file into your installation of Outlook on the new computer by using the in-built Outlook import function.
    10. Open Outlook on the new computer then go to the “File” menu > “Import and Export”. The Import and Export Wizard window will appear.
    11. Select “Import from another program or file” and click “Next”.
    12. On the next screen asking you to choose the file type, select “Personal Folder File (.pst)” and click “Next”.
    13. The next screen will ask you to select the file to import.
    14. Click the “Browse” button and navigate to the location to which you copied the PST file from your old computer (in our example before this was the Desktop).
    15. Under “Options” select one of the options depending on how you wish the import to behave. I suggest you leave this at the default setting of “Replace duplicates with items imported” as you should not have any duplicates.
    16. Click “Next”. This last screen before the import allows you to specify exactly what should be imported. If you wish to import everything from your old PST file (i.e. mail, calendar, contacts, etc.) then underneath “Select the folder to import from” choose the root “Personal Folders” node as this will import everything underneath “Personal Folders” in your old PST file. As you can see, this includes emails and also the calendar, contacts, and other folders.
    17. Make sure “Include subfolders” is ticked and enable “Import items into the same folder in” then select “Personal Folders”. This will import all the data under your old Personal Folders into your new Personal Folders.
    18. Click “Finish” to commence the import. It could take a while considering the number of emails which need to transfer across.
    Once the process has completed check the results. If you are satisfied then you can safely delete the copied PST file from your old computer to the desktop, as all the data from that file has been imported into your PST file for your installation of Outlook on the new computer. I would advise to burn it on a CD/DVD (depending on the size of the file) or store it somewhere else - it is always a good idea to keep a backup.

    My foldders file extension got changed automatically


    Can you still open it? Are you talking about a file extension, or a folder name? Folders themselves don't have extensions...

    Maybe you should just make a copy of it, then try to rename the folder name/file extension to whatever it was before, then try to open it.
