Outlook E xpress Retrieval

By carronr ·
How do you retreive your address books and e-mail from a slave drive (Win98)to your primary drive Windows 2000 if your never backed them up. Is there a third party utility out there that will let you do this?

Connect the slave drive

Perform a search for *.DBX files

U will get a list of *.dbx files such as inbox.dbx,outbox.dbx etc.

Copy all the *.dbx files to a new folder c:\mail on the master drive.
Rename inbox.dbx as oldinbox.dbx(important)

Open the outlook express in Win2000

Go to tools
Then click options
There u will find one maintainence tab.

in that U will find a store folder tab.
click on the change Location/store folder tab
Put in C:\mail in that location


When u restart Outlook exp. u will get 2 inbox folders 1.inbox and 2. oldinbox

Plz send feedback bout my solution for my reference.
