Restoring Outlook XP Archives to '03

By arjee63 ·
I have attempted to restore archive files created in Outlook XP to a new installation of Outlook 2003. When I do an import, the file appears as blank - and the file size of the original file is reduced to about 265 K. If I use Data File Management to open the folder, the original file remains intact, but I still cannot see any of the folders. I've tried deleting and recreating my archive file for 2003 as suggested in another discussion. Any more ideas?

Set up an archive folder with a new .pst file, choose Outlook 97-2002 file type from the choices.

Proceed with your restoration.

Or, just point the new .pst file to your existing archives.

What was the suggestion for deleting and recreating? You can't make Outlook XP compatible with the new .pst type in 2003.
