Windows 7: Outlook - Office 2010 .pst Installation Question(s)

*THANKS FOR THE REPLY

There is some ColdFusion about how Windows PC and software wrk.
*uh, coldfusion??...

3) User Profile folder Application setting files, like signatures, etc.
*yes, i know this point

4) Application database files, like the PST and OST files
*yes, i know this point


To migrate the data to a new machine, physically different PC or a reinstall of windows on the same PC, is basically the same thing. I urge you to use a software that will properly backup your data and user profiles. This allows you to restore it back just like it was.
*The pst files have already been backed up some time ago....My question remains that if I "shot-gun" a previously saved pst file into a new installation of office/outlook and I don't like it for whatever reason, HOW or what is the procedure to return office/outlook to the state that it was BEFORE I loaded the already saved pst file onto/into it??....Do I have to uninstall office/outlook and re-install it all over again?

Great, then you know about Office applications having a menu option to open and close files.

What happens when you open and close the old PST?
