    :confused: I just changed over from Windows Vista and installed Windows 7 32 bit. I did a total backup onto an external hard drive. Now that I have my new mail installed from Microsoft Office 2010 which is Microsoft Outlook, I want to reinstall all my mail contacts from my backed up system. Does anyone know the file ext to look for and under what folder would these contacts be posted in? Also, would anything change from Vista to 7 as far as the ext name ?

    Outlook Mail and contacts are stored in a .pst file . . usually hidden, so when you seanrch, set it to look in hidden files and folders. Same for Vista and 7
