My bosses computer crashed and I need to retrieve all of here outlook data - basically i need to install a new hard drive and give everything a clean slate, but she wants her Outlook to be exactly the same way it is now... messages, contacts, folders... everything.

What files and folders can I backup manually (I have access to the hard drives files, it just wont boot - and I have tryied to repair windows multiple times) so that I can just place them back in the new install directory when I am done installing a fresh copy of windows...

Thanks in advanced for anyhelp.

Best Regards,
Jim D.

Hi jderosa3,

You need the OUTLOOK.PST file which you can find at:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

You can then import that file into outlook when the installation is complete.

Greetings,
