If you didn't move it, the default location is here: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\

You can also search for it. It is a hidden file.

Good morning Russ,

Thank you for your response. The path you provided did get me to the location.

But Now I am receiving the following warning from MSOutlook Inbox Repair Tool. It states "C:\Users\Myusername\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook is a directory and not a full path. enter the path and filename of the file you want to scan". The options in the directory are Outlook archive, extend.dat, Outlook, Outlook.sharing.xml.obi and Outlook.xml.kfl. Not sure which one to choose. any suggestions?

You have only entered the folder location, not the file. Select Outlook.pst as the file for the IRT to repair.
