Windows 7 Hoe Premium 7
restore Favorites

Dear Forum,
I had my Vista computer's hard drive crash! Fortunately I have a full back up of my data. Purchases new computer with Windows 7 64 bit O/S.
A couple of data transfer issues:
How do I transfer my favourites from backup to the Explorer 9 favourites?
How do I transfer my old e-mail messages to a new e-mail programme.

in your user folder (the one you would navigate to through C:, so C, users etc. etc.) there should be a several folders (about 10) and one of them will be favourites. If you were using IE, then just copy and paste them across.

Internet Explorer - Import and Export Favorites

The emails should have been stored on the server, so just logging in should download them all again.
(i'm not trying to be vague on purpose, i just dont have a computer infront of me at the moment )
