Can't Restore Outlook Express dbx files


Recommended Posts

I had my old Windows XP PC data backed up using Retrospect Express HD onto a Maxtor hard drive when it finally died. I have been able to find and restore most of the files I needed onto the new Windows XP machine I used to replace the old one. However, when I attempt to restore the dbx files from Outlook Express, I only get two levels of folder hierarchy and no actual data files.


I did find the dbx files in the backup using retrospect and selected those files for restore. i get no error messages during the restore. when i view the restore folder however, there are no files. how can i restore just those files so I can import them into Outlook Express on the new system to have my mail from the old machine ?


Thanks to anyone who can help
