Where to find my old files and folders

Posted: 06-19-2006, 04:55 PM
Hi

Installed Windows Vista on my XP machine, and now my very basic, simple and
slightly embarrassing question is where I find my old files.

I am especially interested in re-locating all my digital photos that I kept
on the machin, though backed up (puh) on my WLAN network.

Best Regards

This is probabaly too late, but you did you install Vista as an Upgrade or
Custom? If you did upgrade, you'll probably have no way of ever "going back"
to XP. If you choose custom, Vista will ask you where to install it, (which
the recommended method is on its own partition). I spent several hours
myself trying to figure out where my "old" Outlook email was. My wife would
have removed one my "you know whats" if I lost her email.
