I have tried to transfer an Outlook pst file from my old computer to my new one but I keep getting an error message. I archived all my emails and transferred my pst file on to a CD which I then transferred on to my hard drive.
When I try to open it I get the following message"properties for this information service must be defined prior to use" then it says "File access denied. You do not have permission required to access the file C:\..........outlook.pst"
Looking for some help, I have deleted the orig. so this is the only source of getting them back.
If you have MS Office XP or above it has its own program that will save all settings to transfer to another computer and is easier to use.
In win XP go to start/all programs/office/office tools/save my settings wizard. Once saved transfer file to new computer and run wizard again. This will transfer all setting, e-mails/accounts etc. It will not transfer passwords.
