Installing old Office 2003 settings & info

  cris66 09:56 09 Nov 2005

After a hard-drive failure i had all data recovered to an external drive. Now I've got a replacement hard-drive & I've re-installed Office 2003. How do I find the previous settings - email/ contacts/ calendar etc. - on the external drive? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated [my wife is freaking out that I've lost all her phone numbers!]. Thanks

If you were using Outlook you need to search for a file called "Outlook.pst". Probably under your wife`s Documents and Settings folder.

If she used Outlook Express her address book is a .wab file and e-mails are .dbx - Do a search using "*.pst, *.wab, *.dbx" (Without the quotes) on the external drive.

Favourites will again be under her Documents and Settings in a folder called "Favorites" (Note the American Spelling)
