I lost a pst file and cannot find it anywhere on my computer.  I have Outlook 2010 running on Windows 7 Enterprise.  Any recommendations and/or troubleshooting steps would be greatly appreciated.

I believe by default with Outlook 2010 the PST file should be in your my documents folder.  I noticed you have exchange email server in your topics.  Are you connected to the exchange server?  If so you might have an OST file instead.

You might need to show the hidden and protected  files in the operating system and then search the PC for *.pst files.
I had the same issue after migrating a PC from XP to Win7 and this worked for me.

Do you have any network drive MAP earlier cross check with your local IT team if they can help may be that is on your File server they are aware on that.

or click my computer ---go to search tab----> type *.pst do the full machine search.
