Unhappy Where, oh where have my pst files and my saved emails gone???


I have just had my hard drive replaced. The folks who did it for my backed everything up before replacing the hard drive. NOW I can not find my pst files and NONE of the mailboxes on the left have any messages in them. They also DO NOT post the sent messages, the outbox or the drafts.

Where have ALL of these things gone and how do I get them restored?

I would appreciate any assistance anyone can give me. I would like to solve as soon as possible before I loose anything else.

Default

By default your PST files will have been stored at
%appdata%\microsoft\Outlook
This is a hidden folder. Type (or copy) this string to the File Explorer address window and press enter. With luck that's where your PST files will be hiding ... if they have been backed up.
