I Have just removed a friends hard drive which was completely full and am trying to extract all his information for him.
His very old PC just died so he has ordered a new one. I have loaded the HDD into my PC as a slave and scanned for virus' Spyware, Adware etc and am now trying to extract information such as his ISP details so that he can put them into his new PC and so connect to the Web.
He has no idea what the family were using to access the Web (IE6, Netscape, AOL or any other).
They do not know their ISP and I have found references to many.
In the Windows\Application Data Both Internet Explorer and Netscape store E-Mails. Internet Explorer are in the "Windows\Application Data\Identities folder"......."Netscape is in "Windows\Application Data\Mozzila Folder"
Can you 'see' any .dbx files on the disk (assuming he was using Outlook Express)?
He might've received registration confirmation e-mails from the various ISPs. Looking into these messages might reveal something or jog someone's memory.
Also, if you've 'found references to many', note down their (the ISPs) names & give each a call - they may be able to help. Plus the info gleaned from the OE e-mails will help when speaking to the ISPs.
