:)I recently lost my .pst files during a computer crash. Tech guys said a partition failed but kept original hard drive and reloaded data. The .pst files are not where they should be and do not know where to find them. Any ideas would be helpful. Thank you.

search for *.pst? You may need to take ownership on the reloaded data since the original hard drive/reloaded data permissions would have orphan sid permissions.

1. Open Outlook-->select Tools-->select Options

2. A new Options window should open-->select Mail Setup-->select Data files-->
A new Outlook Data files window should open--> you can view current PST files/
view settings or add a new PST file

3. Click Add--> New Outlook Data File window should pop up-->select Office
Outlook Personal Folders File (.pst) for new PST file format. The 97-2002 PST is
older PST format. -->ok

4. A new window will appear, asking the location of the PST file currently creating
or the location of the current PST file the user want to open.

Browse to saved location-->select ok

5. A new window will appear, select the name you want to display in
Outlook for your PST file.

6. Then a window will appear indicating PST file was added in Outlook.-->select
Close -->ok
