When i select data file management in pic 1 it then brings me to pic 2, when i highlight either Archive or Personal & select 'open folder' it brings me to pic 3.

Is the Archive.pst & Outlook.pst my email file (ie. do i save that one & import it into Windows 7 when it is installed & my emails will appear????)

As you can see, i don't have an option for saving my contacts, i'm a little confused!

Yeah that seems to be the problem. Most of the instructions were done before Win7 so I'm trying to find the current ones.

HERE straight from Microsoft.

I think i have found something that may be of use to you in the future http://www.online-te...tlook-contacts/

I saved both tha archive.pst & outlook.pst files (which can only be copied to hard disc etc when logged OUT of Outlook) & followed the instructions there to create a backup.pst file (should be contacts!!)

Does 2249kb sound enough for about 300 contacts though??
