How do I copy my ENTIRE outlook profile?

I just reinstalled Windows 7 and it moved all my files to a folder called Windows.old.
I reinstalled Outlook and copied back my AppData > Local > Microsoft > Outlook folder, but when I launch Outloo, there is nothing! What do I need to do?!

1. Open Outlook.
2. File > Import. (If Outlook 2010, File > Open > Import)
3. Choose Import from another program or file
4. Choose Outlook Data File (.pst)
5. Browse to said PST file (would be in the folder you named in your original post)
6. Continue.
7. Done.

ANOTHER OPTION;

1. Open your account settings
2. Choose Data tab
3. Click ADD
4. Browse to your data file
5. Choose your newly added data file and make it the default.
6. Restart.

Should be set. Let me know if you're not.
