Retrieving Outlook Express adress book

Hello peeps. My dads using OE and now he has been forced to do a fresh install of Windows. He still has all files from his old configuration (old harddrive works but wont boot) and I managed to recover all messages by copying the files in OE’s saved mail folder.

But I cannot find the adress book, which he has not backed up so there’s no WAB-file lying around. Where does OE keep the adress book? Starting up the old OE and exporting it is not an option, it does not work.


It should be in the C:\Documents and Settings[username]\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book folder.

Ah there it was! Thanks a bunch!

note to self: Windows file searching sucks
