Not there yet but closer?
I tried the search as suggested and read the article "Fixing a Corrupted Outlook Personal Folders File." Came up with nada. In stumbling around though I may have found them but if so am at a loss as to what to do next. They may be in:
C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook Express - with the individual folders listed under this root. I recognize the folder names and the file lengths seem about right. All are listed with a .DBX suffix. When you select a file and hit Properties all files have the Archive box checked. Also all files indicate that they were last modified on 1/26 which was when we tried to put this system together.
Other than that all is going about as I expected it would with a new system. A lot to learn with XP, a lot of file and program housekeeping to do and a few other tasks on my punch list.
When all is done would you like me to give you a write-up of my experience? I built an AMD 1800 Epox 8KHA+ based screamer.
