Win XP Home

I lost my Outlook Express data, restored to original position.

Deleted items and sent items appear.

In Box appears but empty and none of my additional folders appear.

I can see all the dbx files but Outlook Express does not find them. 

The other item that does appear is the address book.

I stopped using Outlook Express long time ago but if I remember correctly you need make sure OE is closed, locate the file Folders.dbx on the same folder where the Deleted items.dbx, etc. and delete the file.


Let me know how it goes.
