Hi there again,

I built a new PC and have the old HDD as a back up, I didn't remove any software but can't find my old Outlook file with my emails, where would I find it?

When I access the old HDD (F) and see an Outlook icon it opens my current drive's (C) Outlook.

Thanks again

Thanks for your reply but I have followed all of the instructions and still can't find them so I will try and boot up the old HDD as a primary to recover my emails.

If you're using Outlook, not Outlook Express, why don't you simply search across all drives for "*.pst"? If more than one, the largest one is likely to be your emails. Check the file date on it to confirm. Open it using Outlook to confirm more :-)

Possible you lose your e-mails, if so, then try outlook express troubleshooting (http://www.oemailrecovery.com/faq-outlook-express-troubleshooting.html), with help it you can you can extract and save each message in a separate file with the .eml extension, helps when Outlook Express cannot open Inbox, can recover deleted messages too.
