Windows 7 installed - ICQ chat history lost

December 16, 2010 at 01:36:43
Specs: Windows 7, AMD Phenom II X6 / 6 GB DDR 3
My older hard drive (once the master drive) "E" has Windows XP on it and ICQ 6.5 internet chat program enabling access to years of important chat details.

I recently acquired a new PC with a new HDD "C" running Windows 7. This is now the master drive. The old HDD "E" is now the slave drive.

When I locate the ICQ program on the slave drive E and log into ICQ online, there are no longer any ICQ chat history files on any of my contacts.

How do I get the chat histories back? All I did was upgrade to Windows 7 on the new master C drive. The older, well-functioning E drive was slotted into the motherboard later and the files not tampered with.
