    Okay, if anyone can point me in the right direction here it would be much appreciated.

    I'm running Windows XP, and I had a problem with my hard drive and I couldn't boot windows up at all, even in safe mode. So I ended up buying a new hard drive, installing windows on it and using that one as my main drive instead.

    Now, here's where the problem is. I was using outlook express 6 for my email, and i have an address book and lots of emails that i've saved in some folders in outlook express.

    What i'd like to know is,

    In what folders does outlook express put the address books and saved emails in? I looked all over in the /windows and /program files/outlook express folders and I didn't find anything. I did a search for *.eml (email) files and for names in my address book and still didn't find anything.

    Can anyone help me??
