Is there a sure safe method of saving old emails and contacts data? I have over the years got through many HDDs and always had problems with archived files. I have saved in various formats and never used anything other than Outlook and Express. The number of times I have tried to import saved data from disk - only to be told that the M/Soft program cannot read the data? Strange I always thought, cos it was saved in either Express or Outlook. I was amazed when a company retrieved my email registration data from many years ago with ease. Is it me or has M/Soft Express and Outlook always been difficult to get to grips with when archiving?
