Recover information from a *.wab file

  Salut 16:40 27 Oct 2008

In order to resolve a problem on Outlook Express 6.0 I came across a link from some while ago that suggested renaming the *.wab file. Restarting forces OE 6.0 to create a new file (self healing).

My query is now, how can a get access to the information held on the renamed .wab file?

This is the Outlook Address Book file.

you should be able to open this using Address book (as long as it knows where it is)

I searched for *.wab file in all folders and found it. Double clicked to open it

hope this helps

Thank you for the reply. My problem is that I have had to rename the original .wab file. If I again rename it using the .wab tag I get an error message.

Have even tried opening it as a data file and word-shows how desperate things get!

I am getting to the point where I feel I have lost the data...

Not good news!!
