I have been using the Microsoft Outlook Personal Folders Backup Tool to backup my Inbox, Calendar & Contacts from Outlook.  Now I need to restore them.  I cannot find directions for restoring!  All of the instructions in the MS Knowledge Base are for backing up, and nothing for restoring.  Do I need a separate tool to restore?

    If your backup files types are .pst so you don't need a restore tool. You have to copy your backup files to the same location they were before
