Where are IE6 certificates stores in the windows 2000 file system? I need to transfer them from old pc to new one.

I have just replaced a pc in the office and put the HDD from the old PC into the new one as a slave drive to copy over the files and documents.  But we have an internet banking certificate that needs transfering.

There is an import and export feature, but im not sure what file extension im looking for to import from the old PC's hdd.

Can anyone help.

Many Thanks

Certificates are stored under the Contents tab. With IE open, go to Tools > Internet Options > Contents > Certificates.


Highlight the certificate to export and click "Export".  Follow the export wizard.

problem is ive dismantled the old pc before exporting the certificate off the drive so I need to be able to find where certificates are located in the slave drive (old pc drive)

Finding the old certificates will be difficult.  They are probabl encrypted also.  Can you get copies from the venders?

I had no choice in the end but to rebuild the old pc and use the export wizard for the certificates.  It would not let me browse the hdd as a slave drive and import that way I guess thats just another security feature..

Thanks for the feedback, mat
