Recently had MB failure that resulted in having XP-home edition failure. No back up of OS -it was "refurbished". Installed XP Pro and set up new user accounts. Need to recover contacts from old Outlook. I get a Permission Denied message when I try to import into Outlook 2003. Suggestions?

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

This <a href=”http://www.recoverytoolbox.com/outlook.html”>Program</a> <i>might</i> be useful, but as usual, take precautions with any web based download. This <a href=”http://www.slipstick.com/problems/scanpst.asp”>site</a> describes a utility that should already be installed on your system. It also offers a few other software options for repairing and migrating Outlook files.
Good Luck!

    This sounds like you need to take ownership of the PST file and set the NTFS permissions so your new logon idenity will then be able to import the PST file. If you have tried this, let me know and we can go from there. dmw
