HP Simplesave locating files after restoring to computer

  bevhexttx 22:44 07 Feb 2012

I have restored files from m HP SimpleSave to my new laptop. I cannot figure out how to retrieve my Outlook 2007 contacts and emails.

The computer I backed up was an HP laptop with Vista and MS Office 2007. My new computer is an Acer Aspire with Windows 7 and MS Office 2010.

I have been able to locate pictures and documents, just not my Outlook contacts and emails.

Any help is appreciated.

Did you back up the Outlook pst file to the drive? I have recently done a transfer of Outlook 2007 from Vista to W7. On Vista I used Outlook to export e-mails, contacts and calendar as separate pst files and I then imported them. There is one pst file for the entire Outlook and I could have used that. You will need to import.
