I want to go back in time to an old drive (few weeks ago) and I want to take all data from my current Outlook 2000 (address book, all folders, etc) to place on the old drive.
I thought I would just export (to a .pst file) and import to the old drive. My concern is that the file size of the export is considerably smaller (17000 kb) than the outlook.pst (25000) file.

my lazy workaround
divide your mail up into different folders
archive those folders under unique names
save the smaller files & move to new location
import the archives into Outlook

I think that the outlook.pst may be larger because it has not been compressed - even after you delete, there is 'used up' space in there

does this help?
