Had to reformat/reinstall. Before, I Burned back-up by
droping my user folder contence under documents & setting
and made a copy. Upon reloading everything, I could get
everything just as I had it, except for Outlook. My
folders, schedule, and e-mails won't import. Specificly,
the doc I am importing is outlook.pst under [my
name]/local setting/application data/microsoft/outlook
Outlook refuses to recognize it as a pst. Trying
reparepst.exe, it "repaired" it, so the computer would
recognize it, but left it with nothing in it but the
empty recycle bin. I have tried restoring previous back-
ups I have done, and they won't work eather. What am I
doing wrong? Is my info located in a different area of my
name in documents & settings?

You should search your hard drive for all .PST files -- if you use Windows
2000 or XP, they may be in hidden folders. Make sure you're trying to open
the right one. Open it using File | Open (in Outlook) -- don't import,
there's no need to when you can simply open the file. If there's still no
data in it, try opening your other .PST files and see if you find the data
there.
