    Ok PC Guys!

    I have
    Windows XP SP2.....How can I retrieve info from a hard drive Slave (the primary hard drive is long gone)?

    I hooked the slave HD up to another working computer and it's recognized
    (only) in "My Computer" on desktop, as "E" drive...no problem yet....

    However, I want to retrieve emails & addresses from Out look Express from the old HD, (again, now labeled "E").....

    All I can do is open the contents of of the E drive (my old salve drive) and when I find Outlook Express in the programs of E and I click it on....Every icon clicked only pops up as the Outlook Express I have on my "C" drive of the working computer....

    I can't get into the old addresses or emails that I need, I know they are stored on my old Hard drive (labeled "E") - because on my old computer both the primary drive and this slave drive each had a separate copy of windows installed primary XP Pro and slave XP Pro SP2....And I was able to go back and forth to either drive when booting up.

    The computer never asks to open in drive E at start up and E is only found in the contents of "My Computer".

    Now would it make a difference if I added SP2 on my working computer hard drive C ? Right now the C drive has only XP Pro - No SP2 as my old slave drive (E) is formatted?

    Any help would be Extremely Cool!

    Hi, Sorry i had to hit the beach for a run before it got dark.

    Doing a search in E drive of mbx files these two came up; chtmbx.dll & imekrmbk.dll

    And for ibx files; No files found.

    I guess that means the emails aren't there?

    And I'm in California, I came across your forum via a Google search of my problem.....I was born & raised in San Francisco....so you know what football team I root for, the losers that went 5-11 this season....If the 49ers just didn't have that egotiscal, know-nothing, penny pinching, interfering owner...The completely lost quack, Dr. John York...(Eddie D's brother in-law).

    I hope that doesn't exclude me from getting help here....So far I'm putting my trust in "NDVikingFan66"

    [b]Someone else wrote and suggested.....

    "You have to enable new disk on XP

    Right click my computer,

    select manage,

    click on storage

    click on disk management.

    You should see the new drive here.

    Right click on it and select activate.

    This should get you close enough to the issue that you can figure it out the rest of the way."

    Not that I'm the king of posting, but you have 3 so it looks like you chose a Vikings forum for computer help. Kind of strange.
