View Full Version : Looking For Data On Hard Drive

2nd September 2005, 12:51 AM
Recently the logic board in a old iMac I was using for e-mails etc decided to die.

I removed the hard drive from the iMac (OS 9.2.2) and placed it in a external box with a power supply.

After a bit of structure repair it worked fine and I am using it as a external drive for my iBook G4. My problem is I can not find the e-mails and the address book that was stored using Outlook Express on that drive. Can anyone give me a direction to go looking to find the data so I can import it into OS X Mail.

So you were using Outlook ? Is the drive formatted NFTS ?

By default your Outlook Express files are stored in the folder:

Documents --> Microsoft User Data --> Indentities
