Windows 7: Office XP to Office 2007

Office XP to Office 2007

SO we removed Office XP from Control Panel, and did an install of office 2007.

Now the user is saying that they had a .pst file. So when I went to add the pst file it isn't there anymore. All that is there is a .ost file from office xp, since the icon looks like the office xp.

Is there anything I can do here to recover the file?

I find it hard to believe that the .pst was magically deleted when I uninstalled Office XP.

Thanks,

ruKKus

I don't have Office 2007 installed on my computer so can't try this out but try searching in this location if you've not already tried, I think you'll need to tick the Show hidden files, folders and drives option in Organize > Folder and search options > View to gain access to these folders & files in Windows 7.

File path:

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\

No, removing Office shouldn't touch the .pst file.

If not already done, maybe try & do a Windows Search using *.pst

See what that brings up.
