I have two hard Drives C & D. Windows XP was installed on my D drive. I recently did a re-install of XP onto my C drive becuase of a problem with windows on D drive. I did this so that I could resue data on D drive.

My outlook express was on D - and probably still is. I wouild like to copy the files (Inbox, outbox, adress book) from D so that they will show up in the Outlook express that is now on C. I then can resue the other data on D and reformat D.

???

By default:

C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{#######-....}\Microsoft\Outlook Express

Make sure you have view:hidden files and folders enabled.

An article on how to backup and restore your Outlook Express data is available at the MS Support site which may be of some help to you. link

Also, somthing found here about the location of the files.

I see I have been beaten to it

OK.

I copied my filed from C:\Documents and Settings\user\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{#######-....}\Microsoft\Outlook Express. Everything worked great.

However, I can't seem to copy Inbox.dbx into the directory on the C: drive. When I open Outlook Express I have all my sent items but no items in the inbox.

Following the directions listed in Sean's post (see the link to Microsoft's KB article) works perfectly fine. I've used these directions several times on clients' computers.
