Outlook Express & Favourites location in W 2000

  tallboy 16:59 05 Feb 2006

I plan to replace the Windows 98 ME o/s on my wife's PC with Windows 2000. After doing so, I need to re-install her many Outlook Express folders, Address Book and Favourites.

I know where to find these on Windows 98 ME, but I've never been able to find them on my own PC, which runs Windows 2000.

If anyone can give me the paths & folder names for these when I re-laod them, I would certainly appreciate it.



p.s. Because of problems with the 'dreaded' Windows 98 O/S, I will be re-formatting her disk in order to get a 'clean' installation, hence even if Windows 2000 is capable of transferring these files, I will not be able to use that function.

For outlook, if you export her mailbox as pst file this will save all her emails/folders/contacts to a pst file which you can then import into her new outlook.

For her ie favoutires once again export them to a file and then import into her new one

Thanks Thalmus - that sounds like a simple solution.
