Back up AIM buddy list 2 user names

By Casemaker ·
Hi,
I have a customers pc in my shop. The computer will not boot and I am going to do a recovery with full format. How do I back up the AIM buddy lists. I am going to take the drive out and connect it as a slave to another pc. Which files do I need to back up. They have 2 different log in names with buddy lists.

I found information that the away message information is kept in the registry. I wonder if the buddy list is kept there as well. Remember when answering, this computer does not boot normal or into safe mode. I only have access by connecting it to another pc as slave.
Thanks

You dont need to backup anything from there. let the customer know that you are doing a recovery on the pc and you need there user name and password for both accounts. When you install aim and enter the user name and password their information comes up along with the buddy list. The only thing that will change will be any specific aims settings they have like icons, fonts, and etc. Other than that they will restored when you reenter the user name and password
