can't find Outlook email/.pst files on disk drive

Greeting. My wife attempted to install PC Anywhere on my desktop (while I was on a trip, naturally) and it crashed my XP home edition PC. To make a very long story short, I ended up attaching my daughter's hard drive as master so I could at least boot XP, and I've been backing up data from the old disk drive, now configured as slave. However, I can't find any of my old Outlook 2003 email messages or address book. I've done searches, etc. No luck. I tried opening the Outlook ap on drive 2, but it says the OS isn't configured for it. Any ideas?

I think you need to view hidden files. In Windows Explorer go to Folder>Options and on the View Tab select "Show Hidden Files and Folders", you should also untick the box that says "Hide file extensions of know file types"

If there is anything of any value whatsoever - and even if not - you should have a backup of your system. It will save you a lot of heartache.

That did the trick, and I hear ya on backing up. :-)
