I had a problem with my main hard disk, so I moved it external, but now can't

run Outlook from it. How do I find the directory with the messages so I can

move them to a new computer, or import them? What is the file name extension

to search for?

Thank you

Search for *.pst. It's normally a hidden file so you need to add that to

your search parameters...

Asking a question?

Please tell us the version of the application you are asking about,

your OS, Service Pack level

and the FULL contents of any error message(s)
