I have put the Hard Drive from my old PC into a new(er)one; it works fine and became the "E" drive. However when I try to open Outlook on it (via Explorer), the version on the "C" drive opens, which doesn't have my address book, accounts and old emails.
I have tried booting the PC from this older drive via the BIOS - no go.
Can't seem to use the Files & Settings Transfer Wizard as it doesn't let you choose the drive.
If it's a Win98 or WinME it will not work as E:\ It's got to be C:\ for it to boot unless you use some other software that lets you do the above, you are Also may be on NTFS now with your new comp Right, Wrong?
I should have said; both HD's were running Win XP; the "host" machine is an AMD Duron 800; the older one was a Celeron 633. The host has a 10gb HD which I had to re-install Win XP on, and at that time I re-formatted it to NTFS.
On installing the second (20gb) HD, XP assigned drive "E" to it. I don't think this is NTFS. I've tried getting it to boot from the second HDD in the BIOS but it fails every time. Might this be because (gulp) I didn't "Turn Off" the old machine for the last time, but went into Hibernate mode instead...?
I can't find any .pst files on drive "E", although I seem to be able to access everything via Explorer, I just don't know where to look, or how to get the applications on drive "E" (i.e. Outlook) to run.
