When the guy who set up my computer install windows 98se for me..He said he made a back up it and put it in a folder.I can't remember the folders name so i thought i can run a file search and find it.


Or is there some other files that i can search for to find this file?
One that might only be in that folder.


Thanks for any help

Look for a folder containing DRIVER*.CAB
There should be lots in the one folder; that will be the copy of the install data from the CD. When asked to insert the install CD just point to this folder.

Hi doors,

I guess you mean the cabinet files (cabs)
They could be in C:\Win98
or C:\Windows\Options
or C:\Windows\Options\Cabs

they look something like this:



If you have Winzip installed, compressed files
show up with the winzip icon, if not they still
work as these are a self-install type of
compression. You may have a different icon.

John :)
