Lost Outlook File?

Where's my Outlook data after using the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard?

I ran the wizard before doing a clean install on my laptop. Now, I can't find it when I migrate back. Is there something I did wrong? I have done it before and not had a problem, but now, I don't know.

Can you help??

Probably in c:/Documents and Settings/[Login Name]/Application Data/Microsoft/Outlook.

Wherever it is, it's in a file that ends with .pst, so search for that.

Outlook or Outlook Express? Outlook Express have a different file extension. Just checking.

On my XP box, .pst files are found in:

C:\Documents and Settings\{login name}\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Yeah, SuperSquirrel is right, i'm wrong (I was typing from a Mac, and had to rely on memory rather than checking).

Thanks for the help. For whatever reason, it wasn't transferred and I lost it. I *&^%ing hate Windows sometimes..!!

It may also have a .ost extension instead of .pst
