So now I have another problem. I was wanting to transfer a pst file to a new user. I copied the data over, but didn't direct Outlook to the old file before it created a new profile. No problem right? Except that I have emptied the Recycle Bin. I am using an older recovery program called Restoration (freeware from Brian Kato), but I am having trouble finding the file. I have looked at the time stamps and all to try to find the file before I deleted it, but no luck. I have found a bunch of outlook folders that are pst files, but none of them have any data. Any ideas? I inherited this laptop from an old employee, but it's not partioned so my time is running out before the file gets written over. THANKS!
