Hi there, I'm having problems Importing outlook messages from old HD to the new HD. I keep getting a message saying: no messages can be found in this folder or another application is running that has required the files to be open.

I went to the outlook on my current drive and selected file, import, messages, and opened my old outlook in e drive
seems like I changed the main identity or something

Ok I figured out how to import the message by searching *.db* (plus in hidden files) and then dragged them into a folder on desktop and imported them from that folder. Now I need to find the address book. Any suggestions?

thx in advance

Hello, clixto. I found this Microsoft article that offers some nice tips on importing, backing up and saving outlook data. It seems it details some steps on how to get your address book back. There is also another Microsoft article that talks more about Windows Xp's address book.

Good luck!
