    Hey everyone,

    Due to a major goof on my part, I fouled up my system to where the only way out was a reinstall of XP. Most everything seems to have survived, although I will have to reorganize everything (ARRRGGGHHH!). However, I can't find my e-mail folders/contact list anywhere. I'm using Outlook 2000, and can't find any mail or .pst files. Any suggestions? I've already caught plenty of he** from my (rightly) ticked off wife. Have a great night!

    Here's a hint:

    C:Documents and SettingsmaxLocal SettingsApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook

    I am also assuming you have "Show file extensions" and "Show system files" enabled in Explorer options.

    O, Canada!!! You nailed it. I needed to toggle system and hidden folders back on to be able to see my old stuff and recover it. The path you provided was perfect. Thanks so much [​IMG] [​IMG] !
