Hey people,

Just wondering if anyone could help me out with this pickle i got my self into. I own a v2000 presario laptop and it just gave me the motherboard of death action and died. Now i took the hard drive out of that laptop and put it on a usb adapter on another laptop. Now I have Microsoft Office 2003 on the compaq and 2k7 on the new laptop.

How would I go about retrieving the data like emails, addresses, etc. I read something about .pst files and .ost files but tried importing to 2k7 and error.

If i just need to install 2003 on a comp to get it i will but im looking for an easier route if you know what i mean.
Thanks alot.

Hi o\/3r(lo(k3d

Were you able to locate the .pst files?

Try copying the .pst files to the Desktop on the receiving computer.
Start Outlook and open the .pst file:
File > Open > Outlook Data File
Browse to the location of the .pst file and select it.
The Personal Folders should then appear in Outlook​

Just to clarify, the .pst files were made using Outlook 2003 and you attempted to Import them into Outlook 2007?
