I have finallylost my Old Dell 8400, After numerous starts when the Fan sounded like a Jet engine, on start up..i kept it on for about a month, and got the blue screen of death..and it would not start again..Tech said it burned the Mother board...so i got another box, a Dell Vostro 220 (price was best i could do). I was able to save my two 300 GIG hard drives from the 8400, one partitioned with the Win XP and programs in a partition and Data in another partition. Moved this drive to the new box. No room for the second drive which i used as a back up anyway. the New Box has Win XP Pro on it, as i didn't want Vista at all. So My new Configuration is Drive C 250 GIG, with new Win XP Pro running. Second Drive is my Seagate 300 Gig Drive, Partitioned with Drive D (Was old 8400 Drive C with prior Win XP Pro, and Programs etc), and DRive E with all data.
I can access all my data on drive E, so will again Back it up totally.
Outlook is my Email, I now can get new email and send email. However i do not have my old Email files. They are on the New "D"Drive (Old "C" Drive)..Is there any way i can find the File and just move it from the D drive to the C drive and have access to the email i have saved. I do have it backed up in another place, but have about two weeks of emails i would not get if i just did a restore from the back up. Thought i might be able to find the old file and move it to the new one on the C drive.
Contacts/ Same problem here...all my contacts in outlook are on the new D drive can i find them and move them to the file for outlook on my new C drive
Favorites for Explorer...Same issue here, can i just move the favorites file..
If this is possible, can anyone tell me where to look? It would save me a lot, if i can just move the files from my D to my C drive... as they were there and fine when i got the system.
I then plan to format the D drive and use it as another open partition, or just delete the partition and have a complete 300 GIG drive for data....
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
