Hi

Please could someone help. I am trying to recover .pst files backup folder for outlook express 10 on a crashed hard drive. I have recovered all the other files except for the outlook folder which is proving elusive, but really important as it is for work. I have tried several programs and managed to find a couple of saved emails but not the folder. I cannot find the link in user or document.

Thanks

This is your 3rd post on this issue, please try to stick to one thread, in others you said outlook which is very different than outlook express, outlook express no longer exists, it is now "windows live mail".

 

The database for outlook express is not a *.pst, it is a *.dbx you can read this article: http://ask-leo.com/where_does_outlook_express_put_my_mail_folders.html

 

If it was outlook express (windows xp) then the *.dbx might be in: C:\Documents and Settings\Your User Name\local settings\AppData\Microsoft\identities\outlook express (something like this, I have not done a backup with express in a while but the folder that contains the info should be identities, that folder may be in roaming\appdata).

 

If it was windows Vista or 7 then it might be: C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail...

 

Your contacts will be a *.wab file. ---> http://support.postbox-inc.com/hc/en-us/articles/202199840-Import-Outlook-Express-Windows-Address-Book-wab-files-

It might be easiest to do a search for these files, double click on the hard drive in your computer to open the root folder, then in the search bar type in exactly:    *.dbx

 

 

For the wab file it will be:   *.wab
