How to search your computer for .DBX files

The objective is to get the exact list of DBX files and their location and path: go to the dos prompt, and to C:\ then type the following command after the prompt:

DIR/S *.DBX >DIRDBX.TXT

This will create a file called DIRDBX.TXT (which can be read with Notepad or Word) listing all the DBX files and their location/path. Useful to verify the files names, sizes and paths of all Outlook Express folders.

Here's an example of the originals and the backup:
