    I just recently added a second, larger Hard Drive and didn't format the old one I had in here before so I could attach it later and pull the old files off onto the new one and then format it. Is there anyway to find the old emails in the Inbox, etc. from the older drive?

    You would have to get in Outlook and save them, then import them onto your new drive.

    or if you use Outlook Express, try this site:
    http://insideoe.tomsterdam.com/

    you can also save the settings, account info, etc with dbbackup linked on the site

    if it's a different email client - post the info so you get specific help

    All folders in OE are stored in DBX files: inbox.dbx, sent items.dbx, ... If all else fails, you could tried copying your old DBX files to your new drive. Be carefull though, your current inbox and the messages in it will be overwritten !
