    found an old hard drive while cleaning out my comp area, and found out it still works (did a hd check and virus check). i also notice that there are some of my old yahoo messages/files

    my question is how can i view these .dat files? and was wondering if somewhere in ie/yahoo i can retreive my old passwords (that is if yahoo still has my old e-mail)
    thanks :bowdown:

    A .dat file can contain anything. Open it up in wordpad or excel and see if it produces anything readable.
