Hello all, and thanks in advance for any advice.
Here's the situation:
Computer #1 finally melted down. I removed the HD and installed it in Computer #2. Computer #2 was unable to boot from that drive, but it can be read, so no major loss.
(both computers running XP Pro. #1 running Office '02, #2 running Office '07)
I was able to find 6 different .pst files in 6 different user folders in D:\documents and settings\"user"\local settings\application data\microsoft\outlook. All were very old and did not include current contacts or many subfolders. The trouble is I can't access "administrator" and one other. I get an "access denied" message when attempting to open them.
How can I get into those files????? Or is there somewhere else it may be hiding???? Tried to search for .pst and only found the same 6 files.
I hope that's enough info, if not I'll provide any other necessary details.
