*.dbx assuming they are Outlook Express email folders

Try: Start>
in 'All or part of the file name' type *.dbx >
click on All files and folders>
More advanced options>
put a tick in 'Search Hidden files and folders' and enter your Hard Drive letter in 'Look in'>
in 'All or part of the file name' type *.dbx

hope this helps
