Question Old outlook express files

Hi all
I recenlty reinstalled my windows into a new harddrive which i bought. However i couldn't find the old outlook express emails which were in the old OS. Does anyone know where these files are? I am quite sure they are not deleted as they were in another hard drive.

Thanks

Outlook Express keeps it's folders and messages as 'MBX' files (one MBX file for each folder in Outlook Express). So to find them you need to specify a search for all files ending in .mbx. Since the rest of the filename is not known, simply use a wildcard symbol. So type *.mbx and start the search.
