Some assistance needed.
I have brought system back up using another hard drive.
I can access the crashed drive and copy files from it and am recovering 'lost' data this way.
I cannot find the Outlook Express 'inbox' to copy.
I can't find the addressbook either, but I can launch F:\program files\outlook express\ wab.exe, which apparently brings up the addressbook, on the corrupted drive. However it appears to be empty.
I can launch outlook express from C drive. which has the current operating system on it; AND from F, which is the corrupted drive. When I do this, they both seem to be using the same information to come up with. In other words, if I launch OE from C and make a change in the screen format, then in a subsequent launch from F (the corrupted drive) the change is present here as well. I can add a contact to the address book when launched from either drive and it appears in the addressbook when I check it from either drive.
This leads me to believe that no matter what`drive I am launching from, when I do the clicking, windows is going to C drive to launch, and using the C drive files for information.
Or in other words, I suspect that when I launch wab.exe from F (the corrupted drive) I am actually going to the files on C drive to get the information. In other words, I suspect no matter where I alunch from, I am seeing the empty file on C: drive.
If this is correct, then I probably havent lost the address book, I just cannot get to it, this way.
I hope that made sense.
Where is windows storing 'inbox', 'outbox', etc, (path and filename) so I can copy them to a good disk?
Where does windows store the address book or have I definately lost the address book?
