Some files on my hard drive (OS - WinXP) got corrupted today and now i can no longer boot into windows. I'm using a Linux cd to try and save my files before i format. I'm able to see my files and i transferred them successfully on a USB stick. But i can't get my *.dbx files (outlook express) I tried to use the find folders option but it says my drive cannot be mounted. I looked in Application data and Local settings but i only find Pst files. Any other way that i can search for DBX files?

If you are using Linux, you can use the find command. The basic format would be:

find STARTDIR -name \*.dbx -print

where STARTDIR is where your disk is mounted.

If you can see the files, I would assume that the disk is mounted, so I am not sure of why you said that something is saying that the drive can not be mounted.
