Windows Address Book data

  1. I have recently moved the data from a laptop hard drive to my own desktop hard drive, and everything went fine. The owner of the laptop hard drive recently asked me to try and recover their Windows Address Book entries, but launching "their" wab.exe just references my own (for example, my Address Book was empty, but adding an entry called "test" causes it to show up when I launch wab.exe from the laptop data folder). If their data had been exported beforehand then this wouldn't be a problem. I was wondering if anyone knew how to find the pre-export Address Book data if at all possible. Thanks.
