Outlook 2016 issues

My hard drive recently crashed. I have retrieved most of the data including the outlook data files which seem to be in 2 locations which are: [b]Documents>>Outlook files (101 MB) and Users>>Name>>AppData>>Microsoft>>Outlook (6GB). I am unsure on two counts, as to which files I need to import into Outlook on the ew PC. Secondly, where do I find the  Contacts file for Outlook 2016?

bledington,

I assume this is a PST file? (The data file ends in .pst)

If so, it will likely be the 6GB file.  In Outlook on the new PC, click File > Open > Open Outlook Data file, then select the file you have recovered from wherever you have stored it and it will appear in the list of data files in your copy of Outlook. You can then view its contents.

To import the information from it, use the File > Open > Import/Export function.

You can do the same with the 100MB file to see what it contains.

Your contacts will be stored in the PST file that you have recovered and can be easily imported with the same method described above.

As suggested above you can import both the PST into your Outlook and see which one you want to use. Also, you will get contacts, calendars and other mailbox data as well with the same process.
