I have just recently had to do a complete restore of Vista back onto my home computer. I did a full backup through the backup and restore wizard that comes with Vista 64 bit version and saved everything to an external hard drive.
I have been able to load everything back on O.K. except for the outlook files. I cannot access or sure how to do it. The backup files has 4 folders with outlook files in them. 1st folder has archive1 -7 files, 2nd folder has archive1 - 3 files, 3rd folder has Outlook.pst -9 files, 4th folder has 1 file- Outlook.pst file, 5th folder has no files. The folders are all RAR files.
When I try to import them through outlook wizard I go to Import from another program<personal folder file(pst.)<browse=G: file location and have no files in folder. If I click on all files they are there. So cannot import. what do I need to do.
I have been to show hidden files and clicked on this and also unchecked hide extensions and hide protected operating system files.
Still cannot see any files.
Can you please help me out with this as I now have no email, contacts, or calendar from my previous outlook.
