I reloaded windows home edition, and MS Office onto a machine that had a bad boot sector. after restarting I could not find the  outlook express address book. I looked in my docs and settings/"name"/localsettings/applicationdata/identities. there are a bunch of dbx files there, but the contacts file is only 59kb. I don't know how to do anything with these files to recover them.
