Question Old outlook express files

Hi all
I recenlty reinstalled my windows into a new harddrive which i bought. However i couldn't find the old outlook express emails which were in the old OS. Does anyone know where these files are? I am quite sure they are not deleted as they were in another hard drive.

What files are you looking for exactly? Addresses or what? If that's what you are after, try searching for wab.exe on your old drive. Usually found in the Outlook Express folder in the program files folder.

If your looking for your old mailbox and what not there *.dbx im not sure of the exact path but its something like

C:\documents and settings\<username>\application data\microsoft\outlook\

or somewhare in there just search windows for'em. Eather that to i beleave you can export your indox to a txt or csv. You could try that aswell.

Good luck!
