copy contacts, calendar, in outlook 2000

By dewey8315 ·
I have a harddrive that crashed. I installed a new harddrive loaded windows xp home w/sp1 and office 2000 (same versions on new and old harddrive)and setup my old hd on secondary ide master. Using outlook I imported all of my contacts, calendar, address book etc. but I am only getting stuff that is from 2001 and nothing that is current. What am I doing wrong, why can't I see any of my stuff from the past 2 years? This is very important stuff, I can go onto my old hd and see all my files, what can I copy or do to get all of my old and new outlook 2000 information

It appears that you have imported back in the outlook archive.pst file.

Outlook 2000 will stores the data in a pst folder.

Do a search for all the files called *.pst on the old drive.

You may find one file that has all of the current information.

Then you can import that info into the current outlook pst file.

VinnyD is right on with this one -- can't tell you how many times I had to do this for my clients -- just look for the *.pst file with the latest date that is NOT named archive.pst and import that one. If you are on a WinNT or 2000 network, the real personal folders may reside on the "home directory" of the server, so be sure to look there.
