Windows 7: Windows 7 7100 expiration?

01 Mar 2010   #21

Windows7 64bit Upgrade clean install.


Do a search for outlook.pst and you should find all the instances of your mail files.. first tho, I'd suggest going into Outlook just before you do the search, so you get an accurate date/time stamp on the correct outlook.pst file you need, as a search will find any and all older backups of outlook.pst if copied elsewhere.. Once you find the correct instance, copy that onto a thumbdrive/ext hd as a backup.

hope this helps..

Windows 7

Thanks for the pst advice. I googles it and it came back to me. I have done it before.

So i just did a clean install after making an RC system image just incase.

I am in the process of just drag and dropping the files back on. Will see how it goes i suppose.
Here is a quick question.

What i actually did was i went out and but a new HD for my sony. nice little 320G WD for 50$. I built that HD with a new retail copy of 7
My plan was then to take the Sony's orignal drive stick it in an enclosure and drag and drop all the files i wanted. That way i never actually delete them and i have the image of RC for an emergency. However i cant seem to find the files when i plug in the enclosure with the orig sony drive in it. Is there something about permissions ans security im missing. I made sure i have ownership of the drive but for some reason, the user folder wont come up. Any thought

Dreading 7000 expiration, scared of 7100.
So I have 7000 (beta) running on my Lenovo T60P and it's PERFECT. I have 7100 (rc) running on my desktop and it has issues... I am so dreading the upcoming expiration of 7000 (beta). I wish I could give MSFT $$$ right now as a pre-buy and not lose my flawless 7000 (beta) experience.
