Default Data recover from failed hard drive

I recently had a hard drive partially fail, and was hoping tha someone in here has a better knowledge of Windows crap than me. I have a system with 3 hard drives, Windows XP installed on drive #1. The OS was really acting up, taken 5 minutes to load IE, I had recently caught a bunch of nasty viruses and assumed that was the problem. Tried to re-install windows w/o formating which failed several times. I'm thinking it's the hard rive, since I have since run several benchmarks that all but proved that is true. I installed Windows on Drive #2 and brought the system back up. Now I can still access the files on drive #1, but I don't know for how long.

All of my E-mail was in Outlook Express on drive #1.

Does anyone know where/which file that E-mail database is stored in?

Like I said I can access the drive and the outlook express folder, and tired to copy and paste the contents of the outlook express folder on drive #1 to OE on drive #2, guess what doesn't work....typical Microsoft. If anyone could help that would be awesome.
