Hello jwah,

first search on your old drive for a *.wab file which contains the addresses and *.dbx files which contain the mails probably one dbx per folder and note those folders down

1. in outlook express goto File, press Import > Address Book
2. navigate to the old Address Book wab file and import it

1. in outlook express goto File, press Import > Messages > Microsoft Outlook Express > Import mail from an OE6 store directory
2. press ok
3. press Browse
4. navigate to the location on the second hard drive where the dbx files are located
5. select it then press OK
6. finish up the import

hope this helps a bit
