restore outlook calander from backed up files

I backed up my entire hard drive on my computer to an external drive before I upgraded to Win 7 Ultimate. I would like to restore my calendar. Help please.

find the pst on the external drive and open it in outlook. If the backup is an exact replica of the file system, the pst is probably at x:\Documents and Settings\old_username\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

It's a hidden file - see for the steps to show hidden files and folders.

Try the below mentioned steps:

1. Open Outlook->Click File ->Import and export->next.

2. Import from another program or file->next.

3. Select personal folder file (.pst) ->next->click on Browse and select external drive which contains outlook data->open->next.

4. Select calendar->next -> finish.
