I also had a new 2496 soundcard along with a new 550 watt PS for it all.
It's fine except i can't find my OLD outlook express and ALL the posts and my contacts on the slave HDD,which was the HDD i had it all on.[C]
I've done something wrong setting up my mail which i also need to fix,but i really need all my old mail and especially the contacts.
Can anyone suggest where i should be looking ?
I have spent ages over several days to find them all with no luck,and i have googled for an answer but still no joy.
I do realise i should have saved everything but i tried to find it before the clean install on my new drive,but i couldn't.
It also wasn't me who did the work,and the guy who did it all never warned me if i would lose my mail by doing this,if that's true or not i don't know.
My old HDD had XP Pro installed on it[still has it on a widows folder]but it was a pirate and got a friend to install a new legal copy of XP Pro on my NEW 160 gig HDD,which runs as the master in a master/slave condiguration.
I was told by one guy i've lost the lot ,which i really hope isn't true.
I was running OE as my mail App and i didn't change any default settings on it if that helps at all,so does anyone have any ideas where i should look ?
