Have you just tried going to Outlook's file menu, then selecting Open --> Open Outlook File and then navigating to the file in question and opening it? That should be all it takes to open the file.

You might also be interested in using this personal folders backup add-in from Microsoft.


It works with Office 2000, 2002 and 2003 and makes backing up your pst files as simple as three clicks of the mouse. You can also choose where you back them up to.
