How Do I Transfer Saved Emails To A Floppy & Back Again?

Q: How Do I Transfer Saved Emails To A Floppy & Back Again?

I would like to get my saved emails off of my hard drive and onto a floppy disk. Then I would like to bring them back on to my hard drive. Of course, I would want them to be accessible by my email program when I restore them to the hard drive. How can I do this? I am using Outlook Express. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: How Do I Transfer Saved Emails To A Floppy & Back Again?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How Do I Transfer Saved Emails To A Floppy & Back Again?

Hi, The easiest way is to email them to yourself even to another email address or email program that works to recieve and send Outlook Express mail, then reinstall or whatever you are going to do...and the emails will be waiting for you when you configure your account in Outlook on the reinstall.
You may need to update Internet Explorer, which contains OE updates> to the current version, etc and security updates, first.
You may have to spend a few minutes sending them, but unless there are way too many, it is tedious to copy emails themselves, that contain attachments, etc, to floppy disks. It depends on what the emails are...if there are links, ads, pictures etc...or just text emails.

You should also of course, get your Address book, Favorites from IE or other browser (you can import/export favorites and cookies in IE) too.

Remember- when you login to sites that require password and user name (TSG is one that does, it lets you save your login but when you clear cookies, you have to manually log back in the first time) Hope this helps. If you try a few emails, you may see that you like the idea..

I am not sure about how long your mail server will keep the emails you send> be a good idea to check on that, maybe it is adjustable, some ISPs have a way to extend the keep current period.

If these emails were created with a fairly current version of OE they should be readable by the same or higher version, but send your self a few and check it out!

I'm trying to help my Mom transfer 7 years worth of emails saved on her old Desktop computer, to her new Laptop. She plans on getting rid of her old Desktop computer.

On both computers, she uses Outlook Express for her email. I'm not familiar with Outlook Express myself. The computers are now networked, and the Outlook Express files on her old Computer have been copied into a shared folder. How do I merge these files with the Outlook Express files on her laptop, so that these 7 years worth of emails are on available to Outlook Express on her laptop?

A:Transfer old, saved emails from one computer to another(Outlook Express) (RESOLVED)

Hi and Welcome to TSF

These links should set you on your way

Or you can try the Backup Wizard
You can transfer your email messages manually, using the Import / Export commands of Outlook Express, but transferring other settings such as accounts, rules, signatures, and identities is a very complicated process that requires advanced technical skills. Outlook Express Backup Wizard makes it very simple to transfer your data by following these easy steps:

1. Backup your Outlook Express with Outlook Express Backup Wizard.
2. Copy the resulting backup file to the target computer via LAN, CDR, or removable drive.
3. Restore the backup file to Outlook Express on the second computer. To do this, run the wizard, choose the Restore option, and select your backup file.

Can this be done? I saved them to an external hard drive with the old xp computer, which I still have, and they are still in the old computer. They were saved as DBX files. Any program I try to use to open them from the external drive when connected to the Vista computer shows mostly gibberish. While I'm at it, can address book lists be transferred from one to the other computer? Thanks

Hi, I'm pretty much a newbie and hope I'm posting my question in the right place? Back when I was using AOL I had saved a bunch of scrapbooking layout images on floppy discs. Now, a new computer and using Comcast and I can't open the images. I believe they were saved as ART images? I took the floppys to a friend that has AOL and I was able to open them, however it took forrrevver to send just two of the images to my mailbox . Possibly because my friend has dial-up? Why can't I open them from my computer? Please tell me there is a way to do this? Thank you!

(since it's soft I'm guessing it belongs in this topic, but also could be WIN 98)

I don't remember where I got it from, or why I saved it on a floppy.

It's pretty, black with white falling snowflakes. When I put in the floppy, open it, click instal it goes on. It's listed in PROPTERTIES when I right click the desktop then screen saver.

When I take out the floppy it's not longer there and doesn't work.

I realize it's picking it up from the floppy and the file (which is SNOWFLAKE.SCR) should be "somewhere" in the computer.


There's no place to SAVE AS when it's open (because it's a screen saver). All I can do is SEND DO. I sent it to MY DOCS and it won't work from there. It shows up in propteries (desktop) but only black, no snowflakes or moving)

My first guess was to open the WIN (98 SE) files and open the floppy files and drag the snowflake file into the WIN one. I looked all through the WIN files and can see where desktop themes are in there, but don't see anything that looks like the (built in with WIN) screensavers.

To show this is the correct place for it.

I know I could try it and see, but figured I'd find out from the people who know, then I'll know.

I'm also wondering how to make a screen saver? I have several FLASH programs (I've played with, but not anything serious).

I know they are saved as SWF ( I think).

A:I have a screensaver saved on a floppy


You say that its on the floppy. Is it the one file?

What you need to do, is to copy the file to Windows. The reason why, is that Windows will only recognise the screensaver if you have the floppy in the Drive.

Copy the file, which should have the .scr extension, to the C:\windows\system32 folder in Windows Explorer.

If you have more than one file, I'm not sure, but it should be only one.

Then, you can set it up via Display | Screensaver from the Control Panel as normal.

Hi, I am hoping someone here can help. Here is the situation: A few years ago when I upraded to a new PC, I saved all of my files so I could load them on the new one. I had some hidden pics, and my folder options were set to 'Do not show hidden files or folders'. I saved a couple of those pics in a folder that was NOT hidden, and then saved that folder to a floppy. Well, now when I look on the floppy, I have the folder, and it shows the size of the contents and in folder properties shows there are 2 files. But, nothing shows up when I open the folder. My folder options are now set to 'show hidden files and folders', but since it wasn't when I saved them, I guess it has no effect on them. I have tried some 'un-hide' commands in DOS, but that didn't work. Another problem is I can't remember the name of the two files. These are some very important personal pics that I would love to have back. I know they are there, but I just have no idea how to retrieve them. I build computers, so I'm not a novice, but I don't claim to be an expert either. Especially when it comes to software or commands in DOS. I will list here the things I have tried to try and cut down anything that will just waste bandwidth, lol:

I have MULTIPLE emails saved during the past year. They are important and may or may not need to be accessed. One of my parents passed away and there are important communications pertaining to her illness and the subsequent family dynamics.
It would require reams of paper to print them all and save them in a file cabinet. They do take up a considerable amount of space in the "stored on my computer" designation.
I have several folders with different designations and now would now like to know if there is a means of compressing them within the folders.
In time, i imagine they will be able to be deleted but, for now, it is important to retain them.

Thank you so much to anyone with some assistance.

A:Saved Emails

Highlight all the folders you would like to compress. Then right click one of the folders and chose Send to > Compressed (Zipped) Folder. This will give you one compressed folder. If you would like each folder to be individually compressed then instead of highlighting all of them just right click each one and perform the steps to compress them one by one.Now you will still have the original folders on your computer taking up space. If you are sure that you have zipped all the folders you can now delete the originals to free up space. If you need to unzip the folders at a later date, right click the compressed (zipped) folder and select Extract All... then follow the prompts. Hope this helps edit - One other thing, if the emails are important, then by all means back them up to a cd or floppy also just to be on the safe side

I use Outlook 2013. A few days ago I moved hosting providers and saved all my emails in a PST file. I then set up my email address with the information provided by the new hosting company and imported all my emails back into the account. It worked beautiful as I have many sub-files. This morning, I went into outlook to check my emails and found that all the saved emails have disappeared and when I tried to import them again I got the following message

The items in the `inbox' folder cannot be imported or exported. The folder `inbox' cannot contain subfolders. This is most likely a limitation of your IMAP Server. In order to create a folder that can contain a subfolders, append `/' to its name as you create it.

I will be changing jobs soon and will not be taking this computer, with all the saved passwords, with me. Is there a way I can transfer my passwords from my work computer to my personal computer?

A:Transfer saved passwords from one laptop to another?

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_backup and Backing up your information


For the passwords you need two files: key3.db and signons.sqlite (previous versions of Firefox used a file signons#.txt).
Key3.db stores the encryption key for the signons.sqlite file and without that matching key3.db file you can't access the encrypted password.
You can look at the Password Exporter extension to backup and restore the names and passwords.

In outlook 2007 whenever I create a new message, copy text in or insert a signature, when I save the message or send it the font changes from what I chose (i.e., arial 10pt) to Times New Roman 12pt.

If I save the email, edit all the text to the font i want, and then send it, the font changes again.

Additionally, if I use outlook format to change the style the font still changes when I save or send the email.

Further with this, when editing all text looks fine. If I click save, leave message open and look at the copy in draft in the reading pane, the font shows as changed but in the email I am editing, the font is as I chose. I have clicked save again and multiple times but the font in the draft is a different font then how I edited the email.

I am new to this site, however I already have a question. My computer was hit by a storm and we had to take the hard drive out. I am now on a different PC, I have the hard drive in a box that is plugged into this pc through a USB port. I need to set up email onto this pc, but would like to retrieve all of my emails that were stored in various files in my outlook express folder on my hard drive from the old pc. How can I set up the new outlook express and import the files from the old hard drive?

A:Moving saved emails from a hard drive onto a new pc

Ideally you'd have a copy of your email on the account server which you could just download again and go from there but...

You want the emails to show up in OE6 just like they were in the old PC I take it? Its a bit difficult with OE6, especially if you didn't have a chance to save the emails to a file prior to moving. In your account on the old drive there will be a number of .dbx files, one for each folder you had in each traditional email account (inbox.dbx will be one). You'll need to search for and retreive those files from the old drive.

Then after you have set up OE6 on the new system with the account(s) properly configured and checked to leave a copy of the email on the server for the first run, run it the first time to place all the new .dbx files in the new account. Then close OE6 and manually replace the new .dbx files with the corresponding .dbx files you retrieved from the old drive. Set the leave a copy of the email on server checkbox to your preference and you should be good to go from then on.

I have really messed up this time. I use Win 2000 with OE6 & NAV. I was trying to see why my Windows Explorer said I had 56 MB of stuff in my Deleted emails folder although it showed no messages when I viewed the folder. I used Notepad to open the Deleted.dbx file & there was indeed a large amount of data there. I tried deleting the data but & ultimately ended up erasing the data and re-saving the file. It didn't seem to do anything to the size of the file.

The problem is that now when I look at my Inbox (which I didn't intentionally touch) I only see emails that have come in since I messed with that Deleted folder. All of my older emails are missing. The good news is that the Inbox.dbx still shows a large amount of data so I hope they can be recovered. My best guess is that I have changed the encoding into something that OE can't read. The readable OE folders show ISO encoding; when I re-saved the Deleted folder it didn't offer ISO so I tried ANSI. I have already tried resaving some test files in the other options offered under Notepad but no luck

Please, please tell me how can I recover my older Inbox items & get back to where I was this morning.

I can't access emails that I have saved on my hard drive. When I try to open them from a file folder, my computer bleeps (literally), gives me a momentary view of the email (any where from 1/4 second to several seconds, but usually 1/4 second) and then covers the email with the standard full-page popup which is headed with "The page cannot be displayed." (The rest of the page tells you several different ways to try to get the page to display, all of which don't work). I am running Windows XP, svc pack 2 and AT&T/Yahoo DSL. I have followed aumha.org's quick fix protocol for cleaning my computer, checking for parasite programs in my add/remove programs applet and running Ad-Aware (only found a couple of data miners). I'm afraid to run HijackThis because of all the admonitions that it is for advanced users only (something that I am not). Can anyone think of what else could be causing this blocking of my saved emails...and what I can do about it? Thanks, Champion.

A:saved firefox bookmarks didn't transfer to new computer

The bookmarks file for Firefox-based browsers is bookmarks.html. It is located in your user profile. Even 1 MB would be a huge bookmark file.

Help ? Need important saved emails. Can anyone tell me how and where to access saved compressed Outlook Express emails. I have read that they are saved on HD with a .dbx extention but when I ran a search nothing was found.

A:where & how to access Outlook Express saved compressed emails?

Normally MS Outlook Express stores the folders on the system drive. You can see the complete path by going to Tools > Options > Maintenance and clicking on the "Store folder" button. Follow that path and open that folder. Each Outlook folder is a file in this folder with the extension *.dbx. It is possible that Outlook Express has created another file with the same name and replaced the existing one. For example it may have created another file for Inbox and the older one renamed to Inbox(1).dbx. If this is the case, than at least you haven't lost your messages. First copy all these files to a safe place, so that you have them if something happens to the files. Than exit Outlook Express, so that you can rename the files. After exiting, rename the files and reopen Outlook Express. Make sure to copy all the files to a safe place before renaming. You may need these files again, if Outlook Express behaves in a strange manner, which is possible.
