The Recovery ToolBox for Address Book tool makes it possible to recover contact information from the Windows Address Book where data used by the mail clients Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express (*.wab files) is stored.
When you install Outlook 2010, it automatically converts the Personal Address Book that you used in an earlier version of Microsoft Outlook. Outlook 2010 then adds the converted data to your Outlook 2010 Contacts folder.
If Outlook 2010 does not automatically convert your Personal Address Book, you can import your Personal Address Book to Outlook 2010. To do this, follow these steps:
Start Outlook 2010.
Click the File menu.
Click Open, and then click Import. The Import and Export Wizard opens.
Click Import from another program or file, and then click Next.
Click Personal Address Book, and then click Next.
Click Browse, locate the Personal Address Book that you want to import, and then click OK.
Note Earlier versions of Outlook assign a .pab file name extension to a Personal Address Book. By default, Outlook stores the Personal Address Book in the following folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
if you cant find the back up file they should be on the old computer but depend what you back up the windows or the whole partition if the whole partition then it's on the new computer(if so the search in existing account ).
I have put details of copying over addresses and the emails for both Outlook express and Outlook.Hope this helps.
In Outlook Express, select File --> Export and select Address book. I recommend that you use a comma-separated values (CSV) format as it's more portable and can be recovered if something happens since it's just a basic text file. Copy that onto the new computer, choose File --> Import, and select the CSV file. That should do it!
Backing up email is more difficult, however.
Here's the basic process in Outlook Express: Under Tools --> Options, click the "maintenance" tab. This will tell you where your email is stored. Now copy all of those files onto your new computer (if you make a CDROM you'll have a nice permanent backup too) and then put them in the exact same folder on the new system (while you aren't running Outlook Express). Restart the app and you should have all your mailboxes intact.
Outlook does have an appropriate archive/restore function too, if you want to try that instead. Under File, select Import/Export. Select "export to a file," then select the mailbox that you want to back up. If your mailboxes are like mine, this will produce a fairly large file, depending on the size of your mailbox. Copy these exported files onto the new computer, then use File --> Import/Export --> Import from a file and you should have the mailboxes on your new system. Outlook
You'll have to export the Address Book from the computer then import it into Outlook on the new computer
1) On your desktop click File --> Export --> Address Book 2) Select the Comma Seperated Values (Windows) as your output format 3) Select the folder you want to export - in this case Contacts 4) Type a name for your file - example: addresses 5) Be sure there is a checkmark next to Export then click Finish
This is the important part: You'll need to copy or save the file to a flash drive or floppy. Alternatively, you can email the file to yourself or burn on CD if you don't have a floppy or flash drive available. Either way the file needs to be transfered to your new laptop.
1) On your laptop open Outlook and click File --> Import --> Import from another file or program (this varies depending on your version of Outlook) 2) Select Comma Seperated Values (Windows) - the same option you selected when you exported 3) Click Browse to retrieve the file you exported 4) Choose either replace, not to duplicate or duplicate under the options menu 5) Select destination folder - since this is your address book you would click Contacts 6) Be sure there is a checkmark next to Import then click Finish

Another way is to hook up both computers on a network. can be done without a router or an ethernet hub - switch via a "cross" cable (as opposed to "patch" cable. Please be advised that the second option is by far cheaper but it could be a pain to set up properly.
