What files in IE and OE do I copy as backups please?

hi , simplest way of doing it is copying files in the following directory, ie c:\windows\applicationdata\microsoft\addressbook . This will give you a backup of your addresses. the second is c:\windows\applicationdata\microsoft\outlook express\ all the .dbx files , this will give you all your messages.

For IE copy files from c:\windows\applicationdata\microsoft\internetexplo rer\userdata.

this should help you .all the best

Thanks a lot Sandy. I copied the addressbook and *.dbx files but for IE I did not have userdata file or folder in the chain of folders you suggested. I did find userdata under c:\programfiles\uninstallinformation\IEuserdata. I feel a bit doubtful about this one! I am using Win98. I had omitted to say in my query what it was I wanted to backup but you figured it. Anyway, again, many thanks.
