    Greetings.
    My old PC was threatening to konk out in a major way, so I made certain to back up all important data before it finally gave up the ghost. The most important data for us is, of course, our email.
    I was running Outlook 2002 on Windows XP for quite a long time. I backed up our Outlook 2002 personal folders as .pst files.
    Our old machine zonked out and today we bought a machine with Vista installed. I have successfully gotten Office XP with Outlook 2003 installed onto the new PC and am now trying to import our old email folders from the backup I made.

    Unfortunately, when I try to import the files, I am presented with the following error:


    File access is denied. You do not have the permission required to access the file E:\inbox.pst

    :eek: I hope that someone here is able to tell me that all is not lost and that I will not have to tell my wife that all of our backedf up email is gone, gone, gone.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks so much for the links - the problem is solved! For some reason, I didn't expect the solution to be so easy. I guess it's like that sometimes, though.
