Outlook 2003 Calendar

Does anyone know where Outlook 2003 stores the calendar on a local install?  I have a user that had Outlook 2003 installed on her local machine, with no Exchange server, who used it primarily for the calendar functionality.  We moved to a new server (there was only one before, so it's a new domain controller, new domain, etc too).  When joining her machine to the new domain, Windows created a new profile for her, hence causing Outlook to not see the calendar she had been using.  Nothing was erased, so the old calendar is still there, but I can't find it.

Does anyone know how to deal with this?

Thanks,
Steve

Greetings, scross1276 !

If stored locally, calendar is in the PST file along with emails and contacts.  Do a search for the PST file and import it.  

PST file is usually located in C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder. It is hidden, so you need to unhide hidden files. Go to any folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

Best wishes!

Yeah, I thought so.  I had her do a search for all .pst files on her local drive.  That search came back with nothing.  Do you know if the search excludes hidden files?  If so, then that's probably the issue.

In Windows search, you need to select search in hidden folders. And even that does not find the file.  You may need to navigate to the subfolder.
