I had to reformat my computer so when I downloaded my pst file into Outlook I

can only see the Inbox, Sent, Drafts, Junk and Deleted folders.

None of my crucial subfolders are exposed. What do I need to do different to

get to see/expand these subfolders?

Depends what you mean by "I downloaded my pst file into Outlook" and whether

you used the correct data data file in the first place

I have a backup file from an external drive and I also saved a copy to a CD.

I checked the file to see if I could open it with Outlook before I

reformatted my computer. I am working in Outlook 2007.

I tried both files and when I import into Outlook I don't get the subfolders.

What size are these two files (backup & Cd files)?

Locate the files in your Documents folder

Within Outlook, File>Open>Data File....browse to this location & open the

data File

In outlook folder tree view examine the new set of Personal folders
