Hi,

I just had to get a new harddrive for my computer. I kept my old harddrive as a backup and still have all the files. I reinstalled MS Outlook on the new harddrive and want to know if its possible to retrieve my old emails, calendar and settings from the Outlook files on my old hard drive. If I try to run Outlook from the old harddrive it just opens the new installation. I assume the information is on there somewhere but Im not sure what files to look in and I didnt have a chance to export everything to a pst file before all this happened.

Do a search in Windows for *.pst files on the old hard drive and point Outlook at them.

The only pst files I found were ones I created as backups back in 2003. I havent exported my emails to a pst file since then.
