Outlook Express Contact List File

I recently had a client that had a hard drive crash. The drive failed most IDE drive tests but I was able to connect the drive to a second pc and retrieve most of the users data.

The question that came up was "How can I save my contact list from Outlook Express?"

The file is located in the "C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book" folder. The file has a .wab file extension and should be named the same as the outlook profile you created.

You can recover that file and import into other email clients.

Hope this helps.
