How to migrate OE 6.0 data to other partition?

    On one machine I am using Win XP Pro and Outlook Express 6.0 for email and
    newsgroups. Anytime there a crash occurs, I am losing some of my email or
    saved newsgroup messages. It's not a very big deal since I use TrueImage
    regularly.

    Anyway, is there a simple way to have OE save all new email/newsgroup data
    on a different partition rather than C:> and to migrate the already existing
    data to that partition?

    I know that I could use another application that would install on D:>, but
    Mozialla's Thunderbird refuses to install in this system.

    Why not fix the crashing problem instead, you fucking idiot? How much
    fucking thought does it take to figure that out, dimbulb?

    Right, nobody would appreciate the slightest help from people like you. In
    other words: You have no knowlege about it anyway...

    How to back up and recover Outlook Express data
    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=270670

    If you just want to change where the information is stored then use this

    Tools

    Options...

    Maintenance tab

    Store Folder

    Change...

    You can then specify any folder, on any drive, as the new location for the
    Outlook Express Store. This is where it will create / update the .DBX files
    (which correspond to email folders / newsgroups) from that point on. I can't
    remember if it migrates existing .DBXs though. Of course, if you take a
    backup of the .DBXs first, then change the store location, you could restore
    the .DBXs to the new folder location.
