OFF TOPIC: Outlook Recovery RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Here's the story....my old PC crashed permanently, but I was able to recover my hard drive.

    I recovered my .dbx outlook files, for which I hope contains my contacts and important emails.  I'm trying to load it into Outlook 2003.  Unfortunately, when I try, no matter how many times I unclick read only, it says files/folders can't be viewed.  What am I doing wrong here?  I've even tried putting the files onto a flash drive, with no success.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • The problem is .dbx files are Outlook Express data files. You need to recover.pst files for Outlook 2003.
