Okay does anyone know of some good "How To Guides or Videos" to show a beginning or novice users on how to "Add existing personal folders back into Outlook 2007 and for Outlook 2010". I'm looking for a "step by step how to guide or video" that breaks it down. I'm constantly having to add user's personal folders back into Outlook almost every day.

Thanks in advance.

Hello City of Redmond,

I hope the following helps.
I found this here

Restore through the Import and Export Wizard

    Open the Import and Export Wizard
        Outlook 2007 and previous
        File-> Import and Export…
        Outlook 2010
        File-> Open-> Import
    Choose Import from another program or file.
    Choose Personal Folder File (.pst).
    Browse to the location where you've restored the pst file (D:\My Documents\My Outlook\Temp)
    Set the options to "Include subfolders" and "Import items into the same folder in:" and select the folder that is listed as your Outlook Today folder set in the dropdown list.
    Press Finish to complete the import.
    Restart Outlook and remove the export.pst file from the Temp directory if desired.

Restore manually

    Choose File-> Open-> Outlook Data File…
    Browse to the location where you've restored the pst file (D:\My Documents\My Outlook\Temp)
    You'll now see an additional set of folders added to your folder list which you can expand. Expand the list and select the Inbox folder
    In this folder select the messages you want to restore to the original Inbox folder
    Drag & drop them to the default Inbox folder
    Do the same for the Contacts folder. You might want to set your view to a list view so you can easily select and move the items. To change the view choose View-> Current View-> Phone List (Outlook 2007 and previous) or tab Home-> group Current View-> List (Outlook 2010).
    Now that the importing is complete, right click the pst-file in Outlook added in step 2 and choose Disconnect.
    Restart Outlook and remove the export.pst file from the Temp directory if desired.

I actually found this before I posted my question, but it seems like it's the only good one out there.
