Microsoft Outlook 2013 - Archive location

Good Day Experts!

I have a User that was on an XP machine with Outlook 2010.  We have swapped out that XP machine with a new Windows7 machine and Outlook 2013.  Our email is hosted offsite on a WebClient.  By logging in on the Web, a function is present to generate a local Outlook profile for the User.  I have done that and email is working!

Ok, now I need to get the Archive folders over from the XP machine.  I have found them and am not familiar with where I put them on a W7 machine for Outlook 2013.  Do you know where I need to put the Archive folders?

Thanks for helping,

Archives are just standard PST files. You can put them anywhere but usually they are under My Documents\Outlook.

Copy the Archive to that folder and in Outlook 2013

Go to File > Account Settings
Select the "Data Files" Tab
Now select "Add" and navigate to My Documents\Outlook\archive.pst or wherever you copied the file to.

You can edit the name Outlook shows in the left pane and then hit ok, your done.
