Hi guys,

I have made a format disk and am recovering everything. I had five folders in my Outlook Express that I saved to import after reinstallation, all of them are under the .dbx extension; however, they are not coming up.

I could import old folders that I had in another back-up (to try if importing was a problem), and it worked out, but these old folders contain irrelevant information.

The error pop-up says: 'No messages can be foudn in this folder or another application is running that has the required files open. Please select another folder or try closing applications that may have files open.'

I tried to copy and paste the folders in the 'Identities | Number | Microsoft | Outlook Express folder but it is not working either.

Suggestions? (I really need those folders to work).

Thank you so much for your time and effort.

Julian.

i usually get that message when i import, it asks location, and i forget to "browse" to the location it is stored, ex: c:backup\mail . or whereever you saved it to. if you look closely, while importing, it defaults to the current stores locvation when it asks where to look.
did this help?
