I've been helping a friend who owns an old 4 year old computer try to free up space as he is running out rapidly. We look in the find files, advanced, looked for files that are at least 2000 kb to help find the real disk space hogs.
We found huge files listed as inbox.mbx, outbox.mbx, sent files.mbx (these may be related to Internet Mail & News). We also found large files with the following extensions:
inbox.dbs, deleted.dbx located in Windows/Application Data/Identity - etc.
We also saw in this window files named delte.idx and inbox.idx.
He is using Outlook Express and Internet Explorer 5.
Could you tell me if any of these files are old and can safely be deleted from his computer. We just don't want to delete the wrong inbox files.
Thank you for your help.
