I have a client that needs her address book from outlook express. Her computer had been formatted and her old computer where she needs to get the address book from is a Norton Ghost Img file.

I don’t have her computer so I can not just boot up with the old img file. Where is the address book stored on the computer?? Is there and recovery software out there that can help?

I have found some, that can get the addresses form the .dbx files …but thats not the address book now is it!

Anyone? :tazz:

thanks gerryf ...i thought .wab at first could only be made by exporting your address book. i did not know it was the extension that the program it self used. i did a search for the .wab on the mounted Norton ghost img and found it there.

Learnt something new :tazz:
