    Hey guys.I just installed XP Pro on my larger(20 g) E: partition on my hard drive.I was previously running ME on my smaller(3 g)c: partition.When I turn the computer on now it goes right into XP but doesn't recognize any programs from the C: partition.The most important thing I need is for XP to recognize all the previous "stuff" from Outlook(my wifes e-mails,etc) and My Documents.Most of the other programs I can probably re-install.Thanx in advance for your help.My wife will kill me if I don't get all her info accessable.

    You can "import" the old messages, I'm not sure where they'd be stored with WinME, though.. might be in:

    \Windows \ Application Data \ Microsoft \ Outlook Express.

    The stuff in My Docs can just be dragged and dropped into your new My Doc folder.
