    MS Outlook 2003 - where are data files stored

    I want to copy my Outlook 2003 data files such as tasks, calendar and contacts from an old hard drive to a new hard drive that I purchased. Can anyone tell me where exactly those all files are stored on the hard drive? Thanks.

    All you need to do is search for the outlook.pst file and that is where the file would be, that you want.

    Yes, all those are stored in one .pst file and you can find it in Outlook 2003 by going to File > Data File Management and then click on the file and choose settings. After that the full name of the file with path will be displayed in the filename box. You will also notice that these pst files like the Outlook Express .dbx and Windows Address Book .wab files, are all located in the folders that are by default, helpfully set to hidden. It will cause some backup programs to bypass them entirely.

    Thanks for the reply. I was able to find the pst file copied over and all from the system now.
