I bought a new hard drive and installed 6 months ago for pix, music, movies, etc. I just got around to pointing "My Documents" to the new "E" drive and moved the remainder of "My Documents" from C to E. When I did, my e-mail folders were gone. No problem I thought, I went into OE6 tools, maintenance and changed the default location to match where the new "outlook express message stores" were. That didn't work. Then I followed the "copy the dbx files to a seperate, new location to restore from" procedure. That would only import the following folders: Folders, Inbox, Offline, Outbox. I still have 20 folders with YEARS of stuff it will not import.

Can anyone help?

Thanks a ton.
