    In Outlook, you can choose your own path for where your .PST file will be. For example mine is:

    Cocuments and SettingsWassim NassifMy DocumentsMS OutookPST FileCurrent PST File. I put it into My Documents so that I can backup all of that single folder and I got most of what I have created.

    I am sure that there is a default path and I think, for OL 2003, it could be:

    Cocuments and SettingsWassim NassifLocal SettingsApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook

    The end of the default path to find your Outlook PST file is Local SettingsApplication DataMicrosoftOutlook. The rest depends on which Operating System you are using: <UL><LI>For WinXP/Win2K it is Cocuments and Settings[username]<LI>For 9x/ME it is C:Windows<LI>For NT4 it is C:WinntProfiles[username][/list]In WinXP and Win2K, you have to have the option to "Show hidden files and folders" checked in Start|Settings|Control Panel|Folder Options|View.
