Default Backing Up/Restoring Outlook Express E-Mail Addresses

Hey!

Does anybody know if it's possible, and if so, how to restore e-mail addresses in Outlook Express, other than from a saved address book file?

I did a format, and I backed up my whole 'Documents and Settings' folder. So, that's 'My Documents', etc. I know how to restore my e-mails via the 'Identities' folder. But, I'm afraid that I'll have to re-enter my addresses.

Can anybody help?

Thanks.
TMT.

Only way I can think of is the export/import.
If you have your entire local profile folder, you will be fine.
Just replace the new local with the user.name folder you have.

I'd prefer not to replace the whole user folder inside 'Documents and Settings', because there are different user credentials and identity numbers this time around.

Is there a specific folder you can point me towards?

Thanks.

It's okay, I've found it. For anybody else with this problem; the solution is this directory:

C:\Documents and Settings\User.Name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book
