To answer your question yes Vista uses CAB file architecture. As cryptodan asks, what specific CAB files are you looking for and what do you want to do with them?

re CAB. Iost a lot of my documets files. Tried Recuva and recovered some. But I'd like to go into the CAB and look for some important private documents files.
if this cannot be done (I'm willing to spend the time) tel me and I'll forget the whole thing. Thanks for both of you for yor response.

I'm having trouble following what you want to do. CAB files are the computer equivalent of a filing cabinet for Vista (or other OS) installation files. They have nothing to do with your documents. Please explain EXACTLY what is going on and what you're trying to do so we can offer intelligent advice.
