Is there a way to "import" Outlook data file(s) from a recovered data?  Can you simply import the old data files?

Thanks!

Hi CraigSNYC,

You should be able to click File -> Open -> Outlook Data File, then navigate to the file that contains what you wish to import.  Open it, then select all items and move them where you want them.

Good luck!

Greetings, CraigSNYC !

If the old data files are on a CD, copy them to the hard drive and make sure they are not write protected. Then in Outlook, go to File > Import and Export to import the data.

Best wishes!
