Re-installing data from a CD R

  Sapins 10:44 08 Jun 04

I have saved my address book, favourites and mail messages from Outlook Express and I want to re-import them but I get a message the import process could not be repeated, I have a feeling I might not have saved them properly? I used Nero to burn them to the CD.

I also have copies of my Downloads on CD, how do I restore them please.

Copy them first acroos to your desktop. Once on the Desktop - right click on the folders/files and select proporties - take the tick out of 'read only' and try importing again.

Hi dth, thanks for your help, I dragged and dropped the folders onto the desktop (desktop not available in the send to menu, will add it later) and then dragged and dropped them into Outlook Express and Internet Explorer, worked a treat.

Thanks to you I now have most of my address book, favourites and e-mail messages back. What a help this will be,
