You may find a "pre-Compacting" backup version in the Recycle Bin, named "Inbox.bak"... but it is strange that only a few days' worth of emails would be missing (if everything was fine before Compacting).

You mean the emails are missing from the Inbox? Compacting only frees up the space in the file that exists from deleted files. It doesn't delete anthing in the pst file. Are you sure you didn't move them?

Are you sure that the last weeks files are not collapsed? Double click on the header and see if the files are there.

thanks to everyone.
I have tried all suggestions and the files are still absent. The sent
files and deleted files are all still there so I I am a bit puzzled, but
will keep looking.
probably something basic !!!
