Does anyone know the RUN command to get the Windows Address Book i.e Outlook Express Contacts
off a slave drive ?

Or does anyone know a workaround.

My main drive is "C" the slave is "D".

Go to Control Panel > Open Email Icon > Click on Add new Directory or Address Book > Click on Personal Address Book  Should be obvious from there.  Hope this helps!

Greetings, jetsonx !

Do a Windows search for *.wab file.  Search in hidden files and folders.  Or you can unhide hidden files and folders before you search.  Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

Once you know the full name and path, you can use a run command to copy to any location your want.

Copy D:\path to wab file\user.wab <new location>

Best wishes!
