    We added the hard drive from our old computer into our new computer (so, I have two hard drives, an old one and the new one). I can access Word documents, etc. on the old drive just fine, but I'm wondering if there is a way I can find/view my email addresses I had in Outlook Express and websites I had stored in "favorites" on my old drive. I hope this makes sense. Your help, as always, is appreciated! Robin

    OK - search for a folder called favorites
    its in the windows directory or maybe under profiles in windows directory - I cant remeber off the top of my head.

    try a search from c:\windows
