Recently I had to reinstall everything in windows XP. And everything is updated. And I installed a new hard drive. Now when I try to open an emails saved to my C:\ disk file outlook express opens but does not display the requested email. It used to open my emails in the past. (before the crash). I have tried every update and settings option I can find.

Are you talking about the setting to open the preview pane?

Outlook Express saves your emails as part of its own file system and you don't normally need to tell it where the emails are stored. If you have set up the email account details correctly when you go online OE should be able to download your email. You can test this by sending youself an email, depending on how busy your ISP is you should receive it within a minute or so (you need to press the 'send and receive' button).

Or are these emails you backed up and have stored in a folder?
