    Hi


    Friend of mine has got desktop with XP home Edition (not professional)

    OS get corrupted (that means I can not outlook wizard for import and export); I took the HD out and backup its data. I copied the whole partition C –got only one partition- (of course with its hidden files) which had those three folders :

    Windows , Program files, Documents and Settings to an external USB HD.

    I did not backup the system32, because it was big and I did not have enough space


    Then I plugged the HD again , and I installed fresh copy of XP professional (not home edition), after that I copied :

    Those files (My Documents, Favorites, Desktop icons, and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Outlook

    I was able to restore My Documents, Favorites, Desktop icons, but I could not get emails for Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 (not OE)!!!!!.

    By the way I have not setup his account with outlook yet, because I do not know what his username and password (Is that necessary at this stage ?)

    Do I need to copy program files as well ?

    Have I done the right thing or I missed up ?



    Thanks
