live mail 2011 - where is my previous database?

I just upgraded to Windows 7 from Vista, and installed live mail 2011. It did not automatically find my data. Where would I find my previous data in order to import it?

(Everytime I upgrade Windows live it's the same old story)

Thanks. You are correct. But the tech that upgraded me failed to realize that I should have exported all my live mail data before the upgrade. All my Vista data was backed up. Do you have any suggestions?

If you did not have too much you can get it from .old that is why it is there.
