I have XP Prof' OS on both of my internal hard drives.My email on both is via Outlook express.I've lost my Address Book details from the D drive but they are still on the C drive.Is it possible to export all the Address Book email addresses from the C to the D drives?

you use 'export' to save (a backup copy) your .wab to a new folder you create for it in 'My Documents' or on your 'Desktop' or onto a flash drive memory stick.

you then open the Outlook Express you want and then 'import' that .wab address book.

In Windows XP, the Outlook Express user files, including *.wab and *.dbx files, are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in Explorer, you must enable
Show Hidden Files and Folders under
Start | Control Panel | Folder Options | View.

click here and click here


(I am not going to ask why you have installed XP pro on both drives and what your set up is...)
