moving outlook.pst causes empty addressbook

I am working in Win XP Pro and using Outlook 2002.
My data files were located in c:\files\outlook data. recenty I moeved all my user data to partition D. It took quite an effort to convince Outlook to accept the files on drive d:\files\outlook data as the datafiles named under File/Datafile management. But now it says that the personal folder (mail delivery) and the archive file are on drive D:
In this menu I deleted the existing reference to the files on C:
In the Folder list in Outlook they are still there, it displays two Personal Folders and two Archive Folders. The two on C: cannot be deleted.
Deleting the outlook files on C: was also not possible, Windows said the files were in use by some other program and refused to delete them.
I deleted them under DOS, so now there are only the outlook datafiles on D: available. In the Outlook Folder List, there are still two personal folders and the two archive folders displayed. But that causes no problem, my mail goes to D:.
The real problem now is dat my address book is empty according to Oulook. As far as I get it the addresses are stored within the outlook.pst file on D:.
Obviously Outlook still looks for the file on C: to find the addresses. How can I change that to D: and get my addresses back to use in Outlook?

go to tools e-mail accounts and select 'view or change existing directories or address books', click next

remove the current personal address book

and then click add, add a new additional address book, and select personal address book; there you can browse to the location on your d: drive.

that is of course under the assumption that you copied a PAB file from C: to d:

Under Fle/Data File management only the Archive Folders and Personal Folders on drive D: are mentioned. The two on C: are not in that list, but keep on returning in the Folder list within Outlook.
