Default Outlook data import

Hello everyone,
I have the following problem:

I used MS Outlook (2003) on my Laptop that eventually broke down because of some Graphic Card problem. I took the hard disk and built it into a case which I then then connected via USB to my new Laptop. This way I could save all my data.

The problem here is, that I do not know how to get my addresses, calendar entries and old mail from my old outlook. I am now using Outlook 2007. To my understanding I have to export the data from the old Outlook before I then can import it into my new Outlook. But I cannot open the Outlook, that is saved on my old hard disk. I think I could put the old harddisk into a laptop so that this laptop would boot from the old HD, open Outlook and export. But I do not want to use my new laptop for this, nor do I have another one at hand. So I wonder if there is another way to get my outlook data. Thanks a lot in advance.

The only way you are going to be able to access the files from your old hard drive would be to boot from the hard drive, extract the data, then import the data into your new Outlook. Unfortunately you cannot access programs from external storage so you will need to boot from the hard drive in order to access the files.

Hope this helps.

May be I'm not understanding properly but if my understanding is that you want to restore Outlook data from your old disk then can you do the following

  1. Search for Outlook.pst file in the old disk.
  2. This contains the Outlook emails, calendars etc.
  3. Copy this file to new machine.
  4. Open the PST file using File | Open| Outlook Data File.
I hope this helps you otherwise please ignore this.
