I have a Win 7 machine with Office/Outlook 2007. I've just purchased a new Win8 machine pre-loaded with Office 2013. I'm very nervous about moving Outlook, as my husband has a large number of work emails on 2007. I've seen various posts on other sites, but none that help the comfort factor, since the situations are different.
We have three separate Outlook accounts - a yours, mine, and ours. I have copied the .pst files for each to an external backup drive. Are any other backups required for calendar, contacts, etc., or is all of this in the separate pst file?
I've seen some posts that say to use the Export/Import tool to move to a new machine (and others that say to avoid this tool at all costs because of data loss), but they seem to be to move to the same version. I just haven't found any good info on moving to a new computer AND to a new version at the same time.
Has anybody done this and can give me some easy-to-understand steps to do it safely? (I'm definitely not a tech!)
P.S. My friend says YOU'RE the ones to trust! You helped him out when he was infected.
