    I just finished doing a clean install for my grandparents computer. I forgot to back up one of the mail accounts. I do have a Drive Image backup of the old drive and was hoping someone could tell me where I can find the old address book file for outlook express.

    I'm not sure what folder the address book is stored in, but it's a .wab file (Windows Address Book). If you can search for *.wab through the drive, you should find it.
