How to retrieve Personal folders files in Outlook2003

By edzlewes ·
I contracted a virus on my pc; couldn't get rid of it so I had to re-download Windows 7, Microsoft Office, etc. I was able to restore files from Windows by going to Windows.old but I have lost all my personal folder files (saved emails) from Outlook. Do they still exist somewhere and how do I find them & place them back in the new Outlook app?

Just want to say thank you (again) to all who contributed their infinite wisdom in helping me to find my old saved emails after they were "lost" due to a virus. With the help of all above(and my daughter), I was able to retrieve them. Thank you, thank you. Nice to know there is a community out there who are willing to help. I truly appreciate it.
