Windows 7: Outlook 2007 setup in new Win 7 install

Windows 7 Ultimate x32
Outlook 2007 setup in new Win 7 install

Dell Inspiron 530s
Windows 7 Ult

Yesterday 7/24
Computer got hosed. Severely. So brand new install Windows 7 Ult. During the install, Windows.old was created. Yay.
Installed Office 2007. Yay.
Started up Outlook, added 2 accounts and realized the display was not going to be what I wanted.
See picture 1. I had that setup before yesterday's reinstall. All my accounts were created in picture 3, and were organized to be directed to each box.
Now picture 2 is what I have.

Today 7/25
Found online help - (crap I can't find it again).
What I have done:
Uninstalled Outlook.
Reinstalled it.
Copied the stuff from c: windows.old\users\me\app data\local\microsoft\outlook
to the same address in the new install. c:\windows\users\me\app data\local\microsoft\outlook (the totally new one)

But when I start it up, the left side (left pane) has no accounts in it. The folder system I had in the old one is NOT there
When I start up Outlook (with all those folders transfered to it), because there are no e-mail accounts, I have to add one.
Adding one puts the account I just "added" at the bottom. I used to have about 4 accounts in Outlook and mail incoming from them would be organized into folders.

How can I fix this stuff?
