Transferring Data from Windows 7 to XP Pro

Likes # 0

I have a desktop with XP Pro as its O/S and a laptop with Windows 7, both of which are networked. I want to import into XP Pro the contents of Outlook, Outlook Express, Word and Excel from Windows 7. How can I do this please? I can no longer find extensions dbx and .pst in Windows 7 for Outlook Express and Outlook. I haven’t searched for the others, as I suspect they same will apply.

For Outlook read this.

I doubt that the Windows 7 machine has OE as it doesn't normally run on W7. Do you mean Live Mail?

Excel and Word files are simply copied across. If they areboth networked then on the 7 machine you should be bale to see at least the public folders of the XP machine.

Bit puzzled why you want to copy. Is it more likely that you want to sync the files?
