I recently had to reinstall Windows 2000 after running into a error stop screen indicating an inability to load the hive (file)
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\SYSTEM or its log or alternate.

The good news was that very little data was lost after the reinstall. It was just a matter of reconfiguring my OS from scratch and reinstalling programs. What I did lose during this process was all my contacts and email that resided in MS Outlook 2000.

Question is then: is there a place where I could still find this data on my system? I've been told that to look for .mbx or .wab files. Where do these exist? Which path?

Any help is appreciated.

On my PC, the .wab file is found under
C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book
