    Access Denied (Home Premium)

    On my new Vista PC when I try to access Doc & Settings/Local Settings I get an Access Denied msg. "That folder is not accessible..." Did some searching in this forum and read some info on Vista's new User account model. I added a password to my account (administrator) but that didn't help. How do I elevate my privileges? My objective is to find Outlook.pst (OL 2003) and copy it to a flash memory drive.

    In Vista, Docs & Settingsetc......is simply a pointer to accommodate legacy file locations. Have a look at this article (particularly the File System & Registry Virtualization). But to answer your question, the PST files are now located in UsersusernameAppDataLocalMicrosoftOutlook.

    Thanks for the info. I'm just getting started with Vista and have to unlearn some of the XP tricks I know so well.

    Yep - There is a learning curve for sure. But once you get accustomed to the "new" way of doing things, Vista is a pretty neat OS.
