    Hi all, my computer decided to die today, but before reinstalling the OS I would like to retrieve the microsoft outlook express address book file. I can copy the file, but I need to know the file name.

    Hi MrPizza

    Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

    Search for a .wab file extension.

    What operating system and version of Outlook Express?

    Let us know if you need to backup any other files for Outlook Express.

    I had a systems crash and need to know the filenames of the address book so that I can copy it to a disk using the boot screen. I have no access to windows itself at this time, and I have Windows xp Sp2
