    Lost PST file (Office 2000)

    Hi, this is my first emabarassing post. I have just uninstalled a users Office 2000 programs and installed Office XP. Obviously being a thorough techie I backed up said users pst file (oops maybe i didn't). After the XP install it has vanished. I'm sure I've done this procedure before and this did not happen. Any clues, anyone

    cheers

    Re: Lost PST file (Office 2000)

    I've never uninstalled Office, so I don't know whether it leaves its data files or deletes them. Generally speaking, Office 2000 and XP use similar data folders. If you find the folder that contains the new Outlook.pst and the old data file isn't anywhere nearby, well, hard drive recovery companies are clamoring for your business.
