    wow. that's a big article. the easy way is:

    1. right click on your inbox
    2. select properties
    3. go to directory listed under 'This folder is stored in the following file'
    4. copy files to backup
    5. on new windows install, do the same thing but in reverse (copy files back to original location from backup)
