Windows 7: Need help recovering data from outlook 2010 from a busted computer.

Need help recovering data from outlook 2010 from a busted computer.

My other computer broke down badly recently and fried the PSU and Motherboard, when I changed those components windows was showed as corrupted. The repair tool isn't working, no recovery point and since it's a complete PC I don't have an install CD.

The problem is I've got Outlook on that computer containing about a thousand contacts and important job mails, I've connected the harddrive up to this computer in hopes of recovering them but where exactly would I find the contacts and mails stored on the harddrive? I'm unable to lunch the Outlook itself on that harddrive, so will have to take the actual store files for the mails and contacts. Anyone know?

It's Outlook 2010.

Thanks in advance.

I found a solution, just in case some were to wonder the .PST file in "/user/'user'/AppData/local/microsoft/office/" contains the mails, contacts, tasks and calendar.

Hi there
provided you can find your .pst files you can use this program (pfbackup.exe) to re-load your folders

Also works for office 2010

install the program and when you see Backup in the menu (it's in addins) on Outlook 2010 otherwise for other versions of Office it's in the main menu as backup just click on it and follow the instructions.

Download details: Outlook 2007/2003/2002 Add-in: Personal Folders Backup
