Restoring VBA scripts to a restored Outlook 2010 PST

We just finished restoring an Outlook 2010 PST into a fresh Ms Outlook 2010 install.  Unfortunately it seems that the VBA scripts that has been developed didn't restored.  We have always backed up the PST and assumed, badly done, that the VBA scripts developed would have been saved.

That said, what can we do to restore these VBAs?

Outlook VBA macros are not stored in the PST, they are in a different file on the system in use.  Typically these are found in:

C:\Users\(USERNAME)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook\VbaProject.OTM

If you have that file from the old system you could copy it in to the same location on the new system I believe.

A little more info here as well on backing these up that may help clarify.

Bad news, but thanx (we'll keep trying to recover the disk where that PST was located).
