not sure if this is the same folder you get on XP but here it goes: \Documents and Settings\Administrador\Applications Data\Microsoft\Address Book\*.WAB
also im not sure if the folder Application Data is exactly that because my version of Windows is in portuguese, but its something relating to that.
also, you should look for it under the user account folder (Administrator).
hope this helps.

Yes there is drag and drop all of the files into a desktop folder then copy that folder on to a disk......you know have a backup of all messages. then drag and drop from the folder onto your pc.........also for contacts all you have to do is run the export function....File Export ...blah blah blah. If you use Outlook it has options to import export everything
