I think there is may be something wrong with my comp, yes chicken, I wanted to transfer the email msgs (a lot) to my new hard drive (I don't use norton ghost alike programs cuz I just want to keep emails only), which I've always had problem in the past, and still. The help file I pasted below had 4 steps, but I got the error msg which I've post above in the first step already. I think what BC meant was step 4, but I could't go that far. I couldn't find the file JustinK suggested either. Does anyone know any forum like this but discussing about Windows stuff?
To export messages to Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Exchange
1. On the File menu, point to Export, and then click Messages.
2. In the Choose Profile dialog box, choose the profile name that best matches the Microsoft program to which you are exporting.
3. To export all the messages, click All Folders.
4. To export messages in one or more folders, click Selected Folders. Then, select the folders you want to export.
My old hard drive has so much trash, I did install winME on my new fresh HD last nite (then format and make the old one slave for secondary storage). All I need is to have the mail msgs from old Outlook to the new one, any other data has already backed up. I just couldn't do it
