your .pst folder would be here:  C:\Documents and Settings\your name here\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Greetings, pivotelli !

I assume you are able to connect the old hard drive as a slave drive in the new computer.

Adding to what jasonpaine said, the outlook.pst file is a hidden file, so you need to unhide hidden files to see it. Open Windows Explorer folder and select Tools > Folders Options > View. Check "Show hidden files and folders". Click OK.

Once you find the PST file, import the PST file into the new Outlook.


Best wishes!
