Windows re install. + office

  rupie 00:01 11 Feb 2006

I have built computers and installed windows lots of times but I have always had 1 problem. How do I save all my contacts, calender and emails from outlook so that I can put them on my new pc, in the same order as the old 1 ???

Outlook or Outlook express?

Copy your existing "Outlook.pst" file into the new PC:

C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst

Copying the .pst file has always worked for me. I keep regular backups as well - incase of disaster striking.

Simply export them from the File Menu to a floppy, USB flash drive or whatever will hold them.

If using XP use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard to leave your new install just the way your old system was.
