Where do I put my .pst file for Outlook
I just purchased a new Dell Inspiron with Vista basic. I downloaded Outlook 2003, and copied my .pst file from my old Dell laptop running XP. Vista doesn't seem to have the same folders, and I can't seem to find where to put my .pst file so Outlook can read it. In XP it was on C:\Documents and Settings\My Name\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook, but on Vista there is no Local Settings folder. Even when I do a search in Vista for the .pst folder that was created when I installed Outlook 2003, I can't find it. Can anyone tell me what I should do?

Im surprised no answer ...though maybe Im having other issues.

I had the same quesiton once... but I notice that under my 'owner' folder which is the name the store gave my setup....... I have a documents folder..

But Im using the 'owner' folder as my 'MY DOCUMENTS' and I created a OUtlook data folder there...

I ended up finding the file location. I discovered that Vista automatically limits the search to indexed locations, and the pst file was not in an indexed location. Once I was able to remove those restrictions, I found it.

whatever works
Glad to hear it.

For me I wanted all files like before.
I wanted to save my pst & other stuff in a 'my documents' like location.
IM using the OWNER folder as such.

And unlike everything else... this folder gets incrementally backed up daily and on weekends twice daily.

Everything else is either setpoint or done weekly (incrementally).
I do a full backup everymonth and cycle out backups.

But I need to find a bigger backup storage...
I havent decided whether to go rAID or 'traditional backup' route.
