Trying to help out a buddy that wants to install a new HDD in his computer. His old one sounds like it has gravel in it. Sometimes the 'puter will boot up just fine. Sometimes it takes two or three tries of turning it off and back on before it will boot. Problem I've run into is that he uses AOL. I don't know a thing about AOL. Not sure how to word my question.....Outlook express e-mail files are .dbx files. What are AOL e-mail files?
