This may fall more under the Operating System category, but since it deals with one program in particular, I'll post it here. Please move it if you see fit.
I'm working on a friend's computer. Windows 2000 Professional recently stopped working on her computer, so I installed Windows XP update. This seemed to fix the problem, only now with running everything in XP, I've had to reinstall some applications (like Microsoft Office) to be able to view old Word and Excel files, etc. However, she is trying to find some old e-mails she had saved in Outlook. They were not archived (that I know of), so they were simply in the Outlook program itself. I don't think I can get to them unless I boot it up in Windows 2000, which I honestly haven't tried but am thinking that it probably won't work...
Does anyone know of a way that I can get into the Outlook program on Windows 2000 or somehow sync up the new XP Outlook with the old 2000 Outlook to get those old e-mails back? I need some way to reach across that OS partition. Is this possible? I feel like the answer might be kind of grim, but if there's any way, I'll try it. It's kind of important to her.
P.S. I think it bites that Microsoft charges $35.00 for e-mail tech support, and I think GTG rocks.
