I have a large ammount of information at present stored on a new folder I have made in Outlook Express and I should like to copy it to a USB flash drive. I am using XP . in the Outlook help folders it says you can do this by compacting the folder locating the files and and copying to a floppy etc. it says the files will be labeled, eg (sent items dbx) I cannot find these files any where. does anyone know how to locate them please. It is possible to copy items from the folder one at a time but that will take forever.

this isn't quite what I wanted to do it would be ok if you could open and read items in the new Mail Backup folder but they won't open. What I realy want to do is move the items in my new folder I made in Outlook to an external drive so that they can be opened and read on an indivual basis

Just drag and drop the emails to where you want to store them.

As MAJ says - and you can highlight the whole batch (using Shift or Ctrl as appropriate) and drag the lot in one go.
