My Dell computer is currently using Windows XP Operating System. For email, the program I use is Outlook Express 6. Several days ago, a short power outage caused the contents of my email Address Book to totally disappear. The same was true for copies of emails which had been received or sent. No one has been able to restore the vital contents (email addresses) in the Address Book. Obviously no one, including myself, can remember everyone's email address. This has caused a serious problem. I am hoping that someone knows of a way to restore the contents of the Address Book. Incidentally, there was no error message of any kind --- it just happened when the power outage occurred. Thanks. :confused:

in OE6, it's stored at C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book\xxxxxx.wab, where username is your accout login name. Alternatively, you can search for .wab files, and be sure to search for hidden files as well.

thanks, and welcome to TSG. :)
