Drive failed on Windows XP Pro using Office 2003 Outlook.System no longer boots but I have access to the failing drive.drive itself and have the pst files and still access.
Using POP3 email account and hotmail account with hotmail connector (all reconfiged on new system).
Goal: Restore the email (done) and the Contact List to the new computer and reinstalled Outlook 2003.
I know where the files are locatedin the file system and on the old drive but not specifically which other files (besides the PST files) I have to move or how to import them for the new Outlook system to have Contact info from the old system/drive.
I can't start the old Outlookto do any kind of backup of the contact list at this point. I do have access to the old drive and I can get the data from it if I know where to look and how to import it into the new computer and Outlook 2003.
I've been searching for information on how to do this.
Which file contains the Contact info: (.oab, .pad, .nk2) when using standard POP3 with outlook. (no contact manager or secondary address books, etc.).? and how do I restore them to the new system. This system was not using the Outlook backup program.
