Get old emails/contacts from Outlook off old hard drive

I set up a new computer for my boss a couple of months ago and he is trying to get his old emails and contacts from his old Outlook.  I pulled the old hard drive and put it in his machine but I don't think he 'backed up' his Outlook (it was an XP machine with Office 2010).  I can't remember if I backed it up myself but shouldn't the files still be on his old hard drive?  Can't he import from them?

If his emails and contacts were stored in .PST format, then yes, you can import them into his new copy of Outlook.

Do a search of the drive for *.PST, and once located, do the following in Outlook:

Click on File -> Open -> Import, then follow the wizard to import from the old Outlook file.
