    I am setting up a new computer and want to move my outlook data to the new machine. I can not find the file, even with show hidden files checked. Search shows no .pst files. Any ideas? Thanks, Carol

    you need to do an advanced search with all hidden subdirectories checked to find the file you are looking for

    Start here. If you can't see AppData, you have it hidden. C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook. (Note that {username} is your user name.)

    :rolleyes:We have Vista and MSOffice 2002. When my husband is on Craigslist and tries to Reply to a listing he gets a message "Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. File access is denied. You do not have the premission required to access the file C:\Users\Marcy\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst. I can Reply fine from my account. I'm guessing I must have him "locked out" somehow. How do I fix this so he can reply without getting this message?:confused:

    Do you each have a Vista user account and are sharing the same email account?

    Thanks for replying Dave. No we both have our own "account" in Vista. I was the one that installed MSOffice from my account. Does that have something to do with it? Have I locked him out somehow?
