Hello Experts,
 
I delete an account from my outlook 2010 and added a new one.

With that, my pst file was deleted and my calendar was deleted along. This happened two days ago and I just realized now.

I need to get my calendar back, asap. Does anyone have any tips on this? Even using third partner tools ..

Thanks!

Removing an account from Outlook does not delete the .pst file. It must be deleted manually. If it was an Exchange account that is a different story. You will need a third party tool. What Operating system are you on?

Before I get to in depth you should be able to just attach the old pst to Outlook. In Outlook click file and open. Then click Open Outlook Data File. Browse to c:\users\yourusername\app data\local\Microsoft\outlook. You should see your old pst file listed there. Click it and then ok. You will see it in outlook. I think you may want to consider importing the calendar to your new pst file.

Well the file that is appearing there (:\users\yourusername\app data\local\Microsoft\outlook) is an OST file and I cant open it in Outlook. Cant find the pst.
