I have had to install a new copy of XP as a result of installing a beta version of XP SP2. I am now trying to recover Emails and Address book which was on my old version of Outlook 2000, any suggestions ??
No I did not format the drive or change the partition.for some reason my P.C. went downhill after the SP2 installation, I could not repair XP so had to install a new copy. All my old files are present, I am just having problems recovering the .pst files
I have checked all my old directories for .pst files and have not been able to find them. Thanks for the suggestions as always when you are trying to sort complicated problems you dig yourself into a hole forgetting the old engineers rule of is it switched on and is it plugged in !!!
for live wire: The XP SP2 Beta worked ok on the first version, when update downloaded and installed the latest version I had a lot of problems with access to programs etc. I uninstalled SP2 using the add/remove programs. Following this action XP would not boot up. I tried to repair XP and this worked OK up the installation phase where the progam hung for a considerable period of time and then reported in the log that Setup could not delete xp2.cab files amongst others. At all times setup recognised the partition and the directory for XP.
