I have just suffered a total failure of my laptop. I have purchased a new laptop and transferred the old hard drive into a usb caddy. I have managed to recover the old outlook calendar data by copying the files over.
I cannot define how to recover my old emails. I used outlook express as my default email program on the old laptop. Help!
Find all files with the extension .dbx. These files should all correspond to the folders in Outlook Express. There should also be a file called Folders.dbx, this contains the information needed for Outlook Express to decompress the other files.
If you don't want to import the emails into Outlook Express, dbxtract will extract them from the dbx files to make them readable as individual eml files click hereclick here, or for a more up - to - date version click here
