Get Outlook XP messages back after XP crash?

TristanRyan used Ask the Experts™
Well, XP crashed wonderfully, but in fact, everything appears to still be there. I've installed XP on my 2nd drive, and was wondering if I can merely copy my outlook files from the 1st drive to the 2nd and thus get all my messages back.

However, I don't know where Outlook stores its info ... I've done a search for .pst files, and can only find my archives. Any suggestions before I do the zen thing and accept the destruction of my messages?

Hello TristanRyan,

make sure you've got the file options to show all files then there should be an pst file somewhere on my win2k it's

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook



Aha ... actually, it was in a recovered file, so I had to search for hidden files as well. How 'bout that. Thanks!
