trying to locate ms office outlook 2003 emails after windows 7 repair

I had to do a Windows 7 repair/install, I made a back up of everything---- but forgot about e-mails

I reinstalled outlook but no exiting e-mails shown, are they still available or have they been wiped, I checked with my server but they are wiped when they are down loaded

Window repair had made a folder 'windows old' and the old outlook with other files was in there, (windows.old-users-user-appdata-local-microsoft-outlook)
I made a copy of the .pst file there, delited the one in the new outlook and replace it, opened up outlook and all my e-mails were there---thanks
