Move Your Data To A Safer, Separate Partition In Windows 7
Posted 01 March 2010 - 09:37 AM
A logical partition contains a pointer to the next logical partition; if you need to recover files from a succeeding partition, you're out of luck. A primary partition holds pointers to all other primary partitions; so someone with the right software and the knowledge to use it has a better chance of recovering data from a partition that Windows can no longer see.

BTW, I'm using an older version of Outlook (2003), and there was no "mail" listing in the Control Panels section. Had to do some fiddling with both the File|Data File Management and Tools|E-Mail Accounts menu items to get the job done... and THEN I still had to edit all my mail-sorting rules!

Also I had read that Win 7 creates its own mysterious, hidden recovery file so I guess that's probably "AppData." Handy to know where that is.

It certainly will for the My Documents folder. That is precisely have I have my system setup with an NAS.
Now, I have not done any such thing with any of the other folders mentioned in the article, but I would expect it would work the same for them as long as your NAS drive has a drive letter associated with it.
