Can anyone tell me how (or if) I can salvage my Outlook Express email and contacts file from Windows Recovery mode?

I am stuck with the Logon/Logoff loop problem. Previous post:

I am about to resort to a complete re-install of Windows XP. Before I do that, I want to save off these files.

Any suggestions?

Thanks very much.

What do you mean by "Windows Recovery mode"?

You could use "copy" command to copy whole OE folder to a CD, for instance, but it'll need some investigating.
In general, the folder is located here:
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{3D3B1757-A978FC42}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
but some parts of the above path will differ from computer to computer, so you'd have to use "cd" command to find exact path.
