Windows 7: How to transfer Outlook 2010 data desktop to laptop

How to transfer Outlook 2010 data desktop to laptop

I purchased Outlook 2010 out-of-the-box and am authorized to install it on two machines. It's been running on my desktop (duo-core Intel/Windows 7 64bit) for months now, and I've just gotten around to installing it on my Toshiba Satellite (Athlon/Windows 7 32bit) laptop.

So far, so good, but I don't want to have to manually and tediously set up my email accounts again. let alone copy my calendar and notes, etc. How do I transfer all that data over? It'll be especially important when synchronizing the two machines. I tried copying over the C:\User\...\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook folder with contents and the C:\User\...\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook folder as well. No apparent effect.

It used to be that copying Outlook.pst would do the trick, but no longer, apparently. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

hmmm...that link keeps sending me to the forum index. I think I've found the thread, though; it's XP32 > Win7x64 Migrate Settings Data: Chrome+Extn, Outlook+iTunes+App?, n'est pas?

Shall endeavor to try this solution and get back to you. Thanks.

Yup, that's the thread. Appologies the link didn't work, it was late last night when I posted and I was just about to go to bed so I probably posted a dud link.

The method I described for exporting contacts and calendar details can be done to any folder so you can export emails as well this way.
