Windows 7: how to recover OUTLOOK data from a crude backup?

how to recover OUTLOOK data from a crude backup?

Dear All,
A system got corrupted its WinXP PRO, randomly restarting due to hardware issues.
Outlook Express from MS-OFFICE 2007 was also installed and configured for use under this installation.

For a crude recovery procedure, somehow ALL possible contents of windows installation partition including outlook installation were copied to another partition as backup.
Now we need to pull outlook account and its all data from that manual backup to a new system with new windows XP PRO and MS-OFFICE 2007 installation.

please suggest steps.
