Windows 7: Outlook 2010 Won't Import Email to New Hard Drive

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Outlook 2010 Won't Import Email to New Hard Drive

My hard drive recently crashed and I installed a new one. Fortunately, I had backed up my data so did not lose anything. However, I am having trouble importing my email files into the new Outlook. I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and Outlook 2010 on both the old and new hard drives.

I imported several archive folders with no problem. However, the main account folder will not import. When I try, I get an error message “The Outlook data file (.pst) is already in use in the current profile.” I have dozens of critical work emails in folders that I can’t access. How do I import all the folders into Outlook on my new hard drive?
