If the .wab and .dbx files are still there, back them up and re-create the user account.

Then use the import tool in OE if needed to recover the files.

If the .wab and .dbx files arn't there, search the disk for them.
Or, use a file restore utility to un-delete them.

Chas,

Thanks a lot, it worked perfectly. Check out also the answer 2 from jwbirdsong, he points to a really great little utility for this task (and more...).

Here is a neat little tool no OE user should be without. DBXract does just that extracts your files even from damaged folders.

Hello jwbirdsong,

Thank you for your answer, unfortunately, someone else already answered and solved my problem, so it is only fair to give them the techpoints. Your answer is also worth techpoints, but it's not possible. I have downloaded DBXtract, it is truly a must have for OE users, thank you very much.

Chas,

Something has gone wrong, your answer comes up as rejected, but this is not correct, I processed and accepted your answer, you can see from my comment, I must have made a mistake somewhere. I will contact Techrepublic and see if there is any way that I can get the points to you.....

Rgds...Pete
