windows address book data

Hi all

I had laptop destruction issues over the summer, but managed to salvage the hard drive, which now resides in its own casing as an external disk.

How do I access the Windows address book data that was there?

Perusing old forum posts, I see that I need to drill down into

Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft

but what then? what's the next folder and the actual file I need to look for?

cheers all

Following \Microsoft should be \Address Book

.....or if not go to Start - Search and look for Address Book

I've cracked it! but best way in the end turned out to merely search for the file through its .wab extension...

thanks for suggestions
