    Locked

    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

      U R DONE!

      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.
