How to import archived files from one PC to another both PC's using Outlook 2010

I just migrated a users profile over to a new PC, both PCs (New and Old) where using Outlook 2010 on a Windows 7-64 bit OS. I noticed that my user profile and emails come over correctly but not his Archived emails. What do I need to check or configure for these Archived emails to come over?

there is an archive file that is local to the computer only.
navigate to
c:\users\"Username"\app data\local\microsoft\outlook    **app data** is a hidden folder
look for the file with the .pst extension  sometimes it is called archive.pst   sometimes it is username.pst
copy that file to the same location on new computer
open outlook
goto file tab
goto open
choose open outlook data file
select file you just copied
choose open
it will now appear in your list of folders on the left
You need to copy over all the PST files and open them in outlook.

Should I do a search for .PST files? or is there a default location they are stored in?
I would do a search so you don't miss any should they be anywhere else.
