I've been sent .pst files by my attorney containing items from his sent items folder and his inbox. He created two separate .pst files named HDSinbox.pst and HDSsent.pst and sent them via CD. I've copied the files from CD into folder on my desktop and tried to complete the Import/Export process and now I can't find my data. It appeared to be importing for quite some time and now I've searched and can't find the files anywhere. It's urgent I complete this by this evening.... I APPRECIATE ANY HELP YOU CAN GIVE ME. thanks!!!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

After you have copied the files to your PC, open Outlook. Click on the file drop down menu, and select open, then “Outlook Data File”. Select the first file on your desktop and click OK. Then repeat for the second. The two files will be shown as main entries in the folder list.

    Problem is that outlook cannot import/connect .pst files that are read-only. So you can't import from cd. When you copy the files to the local disk don't forget to remove the read-only attribute if it's set.
