Windows 7: How to restore Outlook 2007 Inbox sub folders only?

How to restore Outlook 2007 Inbox sub folders only?

I restored my corrupted .pst file in January with a .pst file that did not have my custom Inbox subfolders.
Since then I have received several hundred new emails that I don't want to lose.

I found a backup pst file from December that has the subfolders I need.

What's the best way to get the subfolders back and still retain all the current emails.

Can I drag and drop the subfolders from the backup to current .pst?
Should I create new blank subfolders and somehow just copy the contents from the backup?
or???

Ranger4,

Much thanks for the links.
I'm going to try the export and import of just the subfolders tomorrow.

Outlook 2007 is now duplicating previous Inbox messages?
What would cause Outlook 2007 to duplicate Inbox messages in the exact same location as the original and not as new messages? It does this often, so year old messages may have 6-7 copies in the same spot and date as the original and newer messages are only duplicated twice? I ran the...
