I have searched thru several threads and done a bunch of searching on the net and have found a lot of info about transfer the wab from one computer to the next but have not seen this exactly addressed
here is the issue:
I am moving files from an old desktop (win 98 OE 5.0 PII 400) to a new laptop ( winxp media 2005 OE 6.0)
the import wizard in OE will bring the wab in from a transferred file but loses all the folders. All my contacts are just listed in a lump in the main identity's contacts folder.
Is there a way to keep the folders in the import?
besides the straight import wizard I have tried:
deleted the default wab and backup, renamed the copied the old wab to the default file name in OE6 and pasted it into into the location: CocumentsandsettingsmymachineApplicationDataMicroso ftAddressBookmymachine ( where the address book was)
I can then open that pasted in wab via Win Explorer but when I open address book via Programs>accesories or in OE it reverts back to the default (ie empty) wab
When I paste in the old renamed wab 2 wab files are pasted in for some reason even though I only copied one. One is the wab I am trying to import and the other is the default
What can I do beside totally recreate my folders all over again.
