Motherboard in Windows XP went down.
Moved Hard Disk to another machine and can view files and copy them to new machine.
There are no email messages files for outlook epxress, in the location that I would expect to find them - see attached @ users/Kez/Application Data/Identities/.... (Kez is the user name).
I have tried to used XP search to find *.dbx files but nothing shows.
I did find the contacts in a wab file @ C:\Temp\bu\old-office\Kez\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book Any ideas where else I can look?
Not sure of the version of Outlook Express - did the namie of the files change?
