I used restore to an earlier date... There was an option to keep settings and personal info. Sorry to say I'm not sure if it was HP's restore or Windows. All my files were safe, but settings not. Now that I think of it, I think on my old computer, I saved the address file onto disk. (wab file?) Which means I may still have it somewhere. I'll have to go digging...
I don't have a windows boot disk, as HP didn't come with one, but I do have back up cds from HP. However I made them when I first got the computer, and it only allows you to do it once. Therefore, all my personal files would go bye bye. So I didn't use it.
In the mean time, if i could recover my newer addresses it would be better. I use outlook express.
