How can I find Outlook data on old hardrive?

The C drive from my dead XP machine is mounted in an external case attached to my Vista machine. The drive is working fine and I can access data but I haven't been able to find Outlook history so I can transfer it to my new machine.  I did not do a recent export or backup on the old machine before it died.

I'm using Outlook 2002

(I haven't found a .PST file on the drive but that may be because I can't figure out Vista's Search.)

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

The pst files for outlook are typically located here:

c:\documents and settings\<username>\Application data\Microsoft\Outlook

Hope this helps!

The default folder for Outlook PST files is:

C:\Documents and Settings\user_id\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

Regards,

The application data folder is typically hidden, so you will need to enable viewing of hidden and system files and folders to be able to browse to it.
