I just upgraded my computer OS form Windows ME to Windows XP. The probmen is I am using Netscape 7.2 for my browser and mail system and I have lost all my filed emails. I have them backed up on another drive but can't come up with any way to access them. With ME, Netscape stored all the email and paramenters in a Windows folder called Application data. XP doesn't use such a folder. Any one have any ideas?
Thanks

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

John e-mail Sundaysailor on the Cub board at dsmith@email.unc.edu Rick Smith. He is one of the guys who keeps up the computers at the University of North Carolina. He may know a way to find your email. I know it's still on your hard drive even after you delete it. I once knew how to get it back. I found how by searching the internet for the way to do it.

Thanks Jim, I just figured it out. ME stored all the info in Windows- Application data. XP stores it in Documents and Settings. Moved my info there and can now see it.
