How can i back up all my messages and contacts, in case i format my hard drive.

Contacts are in your address book (File extension .WAB) and your message folders are (.DBX) You need to search for them and save them to disk if possible.

It would help if you told us which operating system you are using. There are some simple backup programmes to do this. Also if you are on XP with multiple users the location of these files varies and each user will have message folders etc.

Try here. click here;en-us;188854

I have other ways of doing this & will forward this on later today, I cannot remember the exact method/file tabs to use.

For some reason the page URL does not seem to include the last symbol/letters/numbers after kb

If it does it again place ;en-us;188854 after the the page has loaded and add to the end of the address.

click here;en-us;188854
