Hi,

My laptop hard drive crashed and will not boot. However, I can see

the files on it and retrieve them when I plug the drive into an

external housing. Can anybody guide me through the process of copying

everything over from my old Outlook 2007 to my new installation? I'm

particularly concerned about the Business Contact Manager piece, as I

understand that business contacts are not saved in the same way as

normal contacts. Can they still be retrieved, along with the records

that have been attached to them (e.g., notes, phone logs, etc.)?

My deepest gratitude to anyone who can guide me through this!

Best wishes...

To recover the outlook data file you simply locate the outlook *.pst files

(you may have to 'take ownership' - see win help) then copy those data files

to your Documents folder, then within Outlook open them

As to BCM try a post to the BCM specific group for the exact procedure.

And next time instigate a backup procedure to external media
