Hey there driller005, welcome to Geeks To Go Forums.

Backing it up:
> Go to your Old Outlook folder in Windows Explorer on your old drive.
> Highlight all files ending in ".pst". (Ctrl+A) Make sure in particular your selection includes "outlook.pst" and "archive.pst".
> Then copy (Ctrl+C) the files you have selected.
> Open the folder where you want to put your backup copies in Windows Explorer.
> Paste the .pst files you have just copied to your backup location. (Ctrl+V)

Restoring it:
> Select File | Import and Export... from the menu in Outlook.
> Select Import from another program or file.
> Click Next.
> Highlight Personal Folder File (PST).
> Click Next again.
> Now use the Browse button to select the backup copy of the PST file you want to recover from your backup location.
> Make sure Replace duplicates with items imported is selected.
> Click Next.
> Finish the import process with Finish.

That's it, I hope it works. Let me know. Cool :whistling:
