Google Calendar Sync Outlook 2007 Duplicates


I have a quick question regarding Google Calendar Sync and Outlook 2007.  Currently my old laptop has Outlook 2007 setup along with Google Calendar Sync (2 way synchronization).  I am getting a new laptop so I will be bringing over my .PST file and resetting up Outlook 2007 on that machines along with Google Calendar Sync.

My question is this, I want to avoid any duplicates, so what is the best practice when setting up Outlook and Google Sync back up.  I have a feeling that if I restore my .PST file, and then reinstall Google Calendar Sync (with 2 way synchronization) that is may bring over a bunch of duplicates.  Please help!


*Note, I am using Windows XP SP3 on both the new and old laptop, and out email server is a POP3.

SImply create a New PST and Sync it with Google.
Once you have done that, In outlook go to
File Import and Export
Import From another file or program
Personal Folder File
Locate your previous pst.
Then choose to options to eigther Replace Duplicates or Not create duplicates.
