Recovering Outlook Express dbx files

  MartynHoll 21:36 02 Jan 07

I have just had to format my c drive and re-load Windows etc. I have restored the saved dbx files for Outlook but I can't get OE to display them - any ideas?

maybe you have not restored them in the coorect directory. Hopefully the below steps will help uou find where the current directory of the OE files are in:

1) Open Outlook Express
2)Tools | Options | Maintenance
3)Click on Store Folder
4) You will see a full path of where to copy the DBX files. Highlight this full path and copy it and open in a exploer or web address window. Copy your DBX to thies folder. Close OE and restart.

Hope this helps.
