Where are outlook emails stored?

  Muckleface 16:47 13 Feb 2005


My mum's PC is refusing to start up, so I took the Hard-drive out and have connected it up to my PC, I can now see the files on there but I'm having trouble finding where the emails that were in her outlook inbox are?

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Do a search for *.pst on your mum's hard disk. You'll find a file called Outlook.pst, which is where MS Outlook (OL) stores it's messages.

To learn "How to Back Up, Restore, or Move Outlook Data" click here.

NOTE: If you mean Outlook Express (OE), you'll need to follow these instructions click here. G

In a file called something.pst

Do a search for *.pst and it should find them; when outlook is then installed replace the pst file with this one.
