Hi Experts,

Since a couple of days windows was asking for the WINDOWS 2000 Install disk1.
tiered of clicking on cancel 3 times (every time) I decide to insert the disk.
and thought "So that is solved" but now.....

After starting my Outlook Express (version 6), I saw that all messages and all addresses are gone????
What is really sad, because my last backup is from.... oops I don't have one :(
Please can someone advise me how to get it back (when it's possible).

Regards,

Murphey

Mrphey,
   Your Outlook Express files may still be there.  For emails do a search for *.dbx files.  Run DBXtract to get your emails back

Your address book is in a .wab file.  Do a search for *.wab

Yep, there are a lot of *.dbx files, but I have 4 users on my home-network and they have all at least 1 account so what files should I try to recover, or is it possible to create a new account and import them.
(BTW also all the account information is gone)

murphey2,
   The correct .dbx file would be under user folder.  Yes, if OE is working fine, create a new account and import them or copy them over.
