Windows 10: Can't get to Outlook 2007 .pst file...

    Can't get to Outlook 2007 .pst file...


    With Windows 10 now on my PC, I know where the Outlook .pst file is located but not able to get to it. I am going to a new PC in a few weeks and would like to copy the Outlook .pst file to an external drive in order to put in the new PC. Is it safe to move it to another folder using Outlook 2007 that I can get to, or is that even possible?

    Most likely you will find the PST file under:

    C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook

    otherwise, set your computer to also search system and hidden files and search for .PST

    most likely you have no admin rights on that PC
    Make sure you have admin rights
    Make sure you can see hidden files and folders
    Make sure you can see System files

    This should solve your issue(s)
    Good Luck

    You left out "Physically have no access to the computer at this time or anymore." The one thing that I learned a long time ago, was not to save all emails to Outlook. I got to the point that everything stays on the server, Even when using a device email program.

    The best solution for the OP is to send the emails back to the server as attachments to a couple of emails, after setting Outlook 2007 to not download anything from the server. Export calendar items to a csv, same as contacts. Then when the new computer is set up, set up the correct program for handling Email, Contacts and Calendar items.
