I was using Windows XP, outlook express, Internet Explores, etc. Had a Maxtor external hard drive attached. Saved all files (programs, etc.) to the external hard drive. Presario went down (hard drive, and other things). Need to find my old emails (in box and sent) on the Maxtor. It is now attached and accessible to my new computer. Have looked at maxtor files briefly, but have no real idea where to look.

I did not make a seperate file and store it someplace.

I have Windows XP on the new computer, will probably use Int Exp, Outlook Express, etc. This is flexible.  

I have attached the ext.drive and can access all of the saved files.

Help please.
