calendar or address is nowhere to be found

Hey Folks,
I have been asked numerous times to help friends install or reinstall Outlook 2k3 or 2k7. My question is this, after setting Outlook back up and importing the individuals .pst from their old profile, often either there calendar or address is nowhere to be found. Is there an easy way to repopulate their calendar and address book to its original state (from the imported .pst). This shouldnt be such a pain but seems to be.
Thank you in advance

Instead of Saving the Users Files, Blowing away their profile, creating a new user profile, and setting everything up.

Use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard.
Found in Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Files and Settings transfer Wizard.

Save the Files and Settings of the profile to a location before anything is done.

Then run your re-install.

Then run the files and setting transfer wizard to restore the Settings

When it asks you what you want to transfer, just select Files and Settings.
This should just do all Files and Settings for that user profile.

Dont do Custom.

Hey apache09,
An Outlook backup is really all I need, doing it the way you recommend, will that backup everything on the given login profile? I would really like to keep it to only Outlook if possible.
Thanks
