I just upgraded to Windows XP Pro Monday. I did the
update install. Now in Outlook Express all of my old e-
mails are gone. The contact list is still there, but the
in-box is empty and all of the sub folders I had created
under it are gone. This is a disaster. To a lesser note,
all of my Deer Hunter 3 Hunter Profiles are gone. Please
tell me there is something I can do to get this back. I
can hunt more deer, but the old e-mails were really
important and there was never a way to back them up.

Thanks

Eddie

For future use, and you should back them up to removable media
occasionally, just case you do have a total disaster.
