Clients computer would not boot.

I bought a new HDD, reloaded XP PRO and Office XP.

I wanted to copy data from old HDD, so I installed the old drive as slave and copied everything to a folder on the new drive. Just in time because the old HDD has stopped spinning.

How do I get the addresses from the old Outlook to the new Outlook?

Addresses are stored in the PST file. Do a search for *.pst  Here is a way to restore the PST file if it is corrupted.
