When I go through the import process routine in the File menu, it says, " File access denied. You do not have the permission..." . My 2007 pst file is on an external hard drive which i connected to my new machine. I am the only user on the new machine, hence the administrator. Help

The good news don't really want to Import anyhow.

Better would be to File | Open | Open Outlook Data File and open that 2007 PST file in Outlook.

Then drag/drop the items you want to move into the new PST file from there.

Import can sometimes cause issues.



Hi, any more ideas? I can't do what you suggested because when I make the attempt, I get an Access denied error. I am simply trying to move and open my '07 .pst file in '10?


Me too. I moved my archive file out of the default folder onto another drive and now I am unable to open it - even if I move it back
