After searching the Microsoft site and giving up I'm hoping someone has an answer here. One of my hard drives crashed, then came back up after I did a chkdsk /f. It is missing a bunch of desktop folders and my outlook express seems to have been reverted to as if it were a first time setting up the computer. There seems to be a .bak folder made at some point, but that only brings up the blank version of Outlook express, not the one with a couple email addresses they i had before the crash. I would like to see if the files are still there on the drive, but I can't figure out what the path is to mail in Outlook express. Anyone know where your mail is stored when it comes in? I tried finding the folders by tracking from my other computers, but can't figure it out. Thanks for any help!
