Convert PST from 97-2002 Folder to the new Outlook File Folders

Q: Convert PST from 97-2002 Folder to the new Outlook File Folders

I've got my PST located on my external HDD. Imoved the location a while ago and I must have still been on OfficeXP 2002. All my machines are Office 2003 Pro and was wondering if it would benefit me to change the file folders to the new Outlook File Folders format.

Secondly, I've been trying to read up on converting possibilities. Would I just create a new PST (I guess in the same folder on my External HDD) and then move all my folders (Contacts/Inbox...) to the new Personal Folder in the list, then delete the old PST file.

I've read a lot about creating Profiles on the machine via Control Panel--> Mail. If I do that on each of my machines, would that cause any glitches (some error message that a folder is missing or something) whenever I plug in my external HDD and use outlook because the profiles may be slightly different for whatever reason on each machine. Right now, my Outlook runs really smooth in terms of email, contacts and calender.

The only bump I keep getting is if I am writing an email and I click the 'To' button to show my address list, I get a message that the list is missing. It must be trying to look for the contacts folder on another machine's setting, but in reality it should be looking at the same Contact List from the PST file on my External HDD.

I just installed MS Outlook 2002 that came with my t-mobile MDA pocketpc/smartphone w/ windows mobile 5.0, and when I click the calendar shortcut, I get "Unable to display the folder. Microsoft Outlook could not access the specified folder location." When I click the contacts shortcut, I get the calendar. The tasks shortcut gives me notes. Notes shortcut gives me journal. Both Outlook Today and Deleted Items gives me Outlook Today.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I've updated through windows, microsoft, and office updates. I'm running win xp pro w/ sp2 and office xp.

When I right click the calendar shortcut, I get: "! unable to display folder properties. the folder may have been deleted or the server where the folder is stored may be unavailable. can't display folder properties."

When I go to what I think is the the directory of these folders, I don't see any of them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have over 13 years of Outlook Express folders and addresses that I desperately need to convert to Outlook 2007. I should have imported them into Outlook before I made the "Easy File Transfer" to the new Win 7 machine, but didn't know I needed to do that. Several years ago I had imported the files into Outlook, although that data did transfer it is now way out-of-date and full of duplicates.

The up-to-date data is still in my old machine and also in an external hard drive backup. I have isolated the Outlook Express personal folders into .dbx format and the addresses into .wab format.

Is there a way this can be reformatted into Outlook? Or is there some other way? I would probably also need to delete what is already in Outlook first, or I would have many more duplicates.

I welcome any suggestions.

I'm missing several folders in Outlook! It began when I received an error message while attempting to open a folder in outlook. The error message suggested running a detect and fix program, which I did. Once that was done I opened Outlook to find that all the email accounts and the folders were all missing! I've since searched and located .pst outlook folders but can't open them. The drop down for browsing programs doesn't even list Outlook! I hope I'm not screwed and that someone can help me out...PLEASE!

I've an IBM desktop Intellistation and ThinkPad both using XP Pro. I've installed Outlook 2002 on both machines.

I can synchronize all my data files between the two machines fine. Would like to synchronize my email too, so both machines are up to date, no matter which one I downloaded messsages onto and replied from.

I've found programs called pstsync version 1.6.22 and synchpst version 1.4.7 which both claim they can do this, but read very bad reviews on synchpst.

Can anyone tell me which if any program will do this job well?

I'm in LA, and could find noone to guide me how to use Lotus Notes/Domino which "replicates" these Folders (an IBM service company said they'd charge $7,000just to come take a look!) I've used Lotus Smartsuite happily for years, including Lotus Organizer, but if there's no consumer-friendly Lotus Domino/Notes, then guess Outlook synchronizer is what I need.

Any help would be great. Been disabled a long time, and it would be fantastic to be able to safely go places with my laptop, do emails, then come back to home base and synchronize my email folders on my desktop.

Sorry if this message too long; first time I've used this site.

Hi All... I'm a newbie here, NICE TO MEET YOU!

This is gonna be wordy ... thanks for your patience and for any help you can provide.

I have several profiles in my Microsoft Outlook 2002. One is set up for me and the other for my boss; My boss has two different email accounts in his profile... one is a hotmail account (HTTP) and the other is a POP3 account hosted by our ISP.

I go through his incoming email daily and 'forward' to him only emails I think he needs to see (which he reads from his laptop); I also delete spam and leave safe but non-important messages in the inbox by 'marking as read'.

Last Friday, my boss mentioned that he hadn't received any forwarded emails for a few days. When I went in to look, I discovered that there were 76 unsent messages sitting in an outbox (not the outbox immediately below his inbox*). I tried to open each and re-forward them, but it didn't work. I got no send/receive error; it appeared to process the send and receive, but the message didn't leave the outbox.

*While I was trying to figure out what was wrong, I noted that there are more 'outboxes' than we have email accounts... in fact, there appear to be 2 extra sets of all the folders.

I think the problem may be that there unnecessary multiple Outlook data files associated with his mail accounts, (I can identify them by clicking on the properties for each one) but don't know which to keep and which to delete. I'd appre... Read more

A:Outlook 2002 - Multiple folders - need help with various 'issues'

Hi there. It all sounds messy. Sometimes with multiply profiles and email accounts Outlook will try and send the forwarded messages via the same account that received it. I've had a similar problem with two email accounts in Outlook but each through a different ISP. They wouldn't forward a message received on one ISP account back through that account to the other ISP account.
When you click forward see if an accounts icon shows up beside the send icon. If so try clicking the drop down arrow beside it and sending the message through one of the other accounts.
As for all the double up folders it sounds as though someone has accidentally copied all the folders in the Personal folders list. If this is the case, then keep an eye on them, and if they are not used you should be safe to delete them.
You could also make a new folder called "Double Ups", and move them in to there. If everything works fine for a couple of weeks I would say it is probably a safe bet that you can then delete this folder. Then leave it in the Recycle bin for another couple of weeks if you want to be extra safe
Hope this helps.

Every now and again I load Outlook and another set of Personal folders has been added under my current set. They completely duplicate the folders and messages already in my Personal Folders. I now have five sets of these - each a snap shot of my folders when it was created. I wish to delete them and, of course, I can delete those which duplicate the folders I created - but they contain Intray, Deleted Items etc. etc. which Outlook will not allow me to delete. How do I get rid of them and how do I stop Outlook creating new sets in the future?

My second problem with Outlook 2002 is that I wish to create weekly back ups and have always done so by exporting to a pst file. After many years of doing this I am now getting the message: 'The operation failed. An object could not be found.' So, I am unable to over-write the previous file and have to create a file with a new name. This is OK except that I now have a very large number of pst files which I cannot delete - and it appears that Outlook is constantly adding data to them. Indeed, it seems that this is happening even on days when I have not exported, because the dates of the files are those of the latest day I have accessed my computer.

Can anyone help? Many thanks

A:Problem in Adding additional personal folders (pst) in Outlook 2002

Can you post a screen shot of the window. I am not exactly sure what you are talking about.

Outlook will only have one pst file per profile. When adding fields to that profile you should be able to open Outlook, click on the Inbox or what is showing and then click on File, Folder, New and then click on the heading you want it to appear under.

IT should create it. But for some reason I am getting the feeling this is not exactly what you want so if you can show the window maybe it will help me understand.

Greetings beginners and gurus...

I am running Outlook 2000 on our network (Windows NT); I read my mail on my (XP) machine using my default inbox, then I open the 'general' mailbox using open>other inbox. Works fine except that there is no folder list at all, and no way that I can see to enable the list. Nothing under 'view' menu and the permissions seem to be set correctly on the server's Exchange System Manager. I took over this duty from another employee who also had their inbox and the general inbox accessible from their workstation....but they had the folder list option. This is incredibly aggravating because I can't view 'sent mail,' etc. And yet in my own Outlook, everything is as it should be.
Any ideas are greatly appreciated; also, please let me know if I provided incomplete/incorrect information or if I am asking the question incorrectly.

I do NOT have access to Outlook Express 6 via the "Normal" methodology. My main PC's motherboard burned out and I resorted to pulling the HDD out of the system and making it an External HDD. This is the only way that I was able to save/access Outlook Express 6's .dbx email files.

So, I DO have full access to the old .dbx files from the old system.

Right after my old PC bit the dust, I went out and purchased a brand new laptop here that is running Vista Home Premium which of course uses Windows Mail as the Email program and uses .eml for the file extention.

I was able to resetup all my Email accounts manually as well as Import my old Outlook Express 6's Contact List files (.wab) format.

The problem I am having is getting the old Outlook Express .dbx folders and files to Import into Windows Mail. I KNOW the .dbx files are NOT compatible with WM .eml format.

I need to know HOW to convert the .dbx files to the .eml format so I can then Import them into Vista's Windows Mail.

Can someone PLEASE help me!

I would be forever grateful!
 

A:Solved: How to CONVERT Outlook Express .dbx Folders/Files To Vista Windows Mail .eml

Hi Katmandu

You have All the .dbx files including the Folders.dbx file?

If so, you should be good to go.

Copy the .dbx files to a folder on the Desktop.
Start Windows Mail:
File > Import > Messages
Select: Microsoft Outlook Express 6
Click: Next
Select: Import from an OE6 store directory
Click: OK

Click: Browse and Browse to the folder on the Desktop and select the folder containing the .dbx files. **Note** when I select my folder, containing .dbx files, it appears to be empty, continue on.
Click the: Select Folder button.​
Verify in the Windows Mail Import window that the path to the folder on the Desktop is correct, Windows Mail has a habit of duplicating the folder in the directory path.
If this happens click the Browse button again and this time Only click the Select Folder button.

Verify the path to the folder containing the .dbx files is now correct.

Click: Next > Next
The Import should begin, an Import Complete message will appear when the Import successfully completes.
Click: Finish

In Windows Mail there should be a folder labled Imported Folder this should contain all the imported messages. You can move your messages to other folders if so desired.​

Let us know if that works for you or not.

Ok here is an odd one:

We intermittently have problems with some of our users. A visitor will come from one site to another login open outlook and they will see their emails disappear.

What is actually happening is that a personal folder has automatically been created and the 'deliver new e-mail to the following location' has changed from Mailbox - username to Personal Folders. Within Outlook two mailboxes appear one being the User's the other the personal folder and all mail has been transfered the personal folders.

The personal folders is stored as a local PST file. So to resolve the issue really isnt a problem. Change the Deliver location back to the User's mailbox. Copy the mail back and close the personal folder.

The issue is that it happens at all. Some users dont notice that the mail has transfered to a local pst and when they go to another PC they appear to have lost all emails!! Recently this has happened where the emails appear to disappear in the same way yet they are not in the local pst, deleted items, permanently deleted items or any other archive files on the PC or network!

This does not appear to be related to autoarhcive as we have it disabled on the PCs. I dont know if there could be a server setting somewhere that could cause this.

The difficulty in resolving this issue is that it does not happen all the time for every person even on the same visitor PC!

Help!!

Hi,
I've been struggling for a while with the public folders in outlook 2002. Our company has a separate mailbox, which public folder has several commonly shared contacts. There are already many people, who have set up this mailbox and can access, edit and send messages to these contacts.

However, I tried to set up a few new persons to use these contacts, but they cannot send messages to them. They've got permissions to the mailbox, they can add and modify contacts and contact groups, but when I select a contact and click "new message to contact" (or something like it), it shows up in the recipient area as only text, not as underlined text indicating a valid contact. And when I try to send the message, it says that the recipient is not recognized etc. For testing, I added the mailbox for my personal account at the same time and I can use the contacts normally, these other two new persons don't. Only difference with us is that my account has a bit more permissions since I'm in the IT-dept, but others successfully using the mailbox are just normal users as well.

Does anyone have ideas what to do? Is there still some setting I could've overlooked? And as a second question, how can I send a message to several contacts in the public folder?

thanks for any help,

How many times have I heard this story before? You install Windows XP or hook your iPod up to your XP machine. Your computer crashes, and when you reboot, Windows runs autochk and converts all of your precious folders containing your Neil Diamond music and third quarterly earning projections into a small 32 kB file.

No, this is not the work of digital gods/goddesses trying to give you a bad hair day or get you fired (though I sometimes wonder). This is a fault in Windows XP's chkdsk utility that Microsoft techs were too lazy to fix.

"So are my Neil Diamonds gone?" you may ask. The good news is "No, they are not", though it will be one tough puppy to retrieve them.

I am not writing this post to ask a question on recovering my files (though I would expect few people to know how to recover them). Instead, I'm going to write a tutorial on how to get back your precious files, and I hope Tech Support Forums will be kind enough to leave it posted and maybe even pin it up!


So, what do I do? Stupid Windows XP/2000 didn't even give me a choice. It just said 'Yes', and when I went to the path it listed, I found a monkey of a 32 kB file with the same name as the folder that was there, but now the folder's gone!

First thing's first. Don't do anything! I mean don't take any action that would modify the contents of the hard drive that the files were on (such as loading this post if it's your primary drive). Any modification to your drive could ... Read more

A:Unrecoverable Error: Convert Folder to File (Y/N)? Yes.

Here are some additional links about FAT32 if you're interested:

Microsoft's Knowledge Base (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/154997)
Windows XP issues with FAT32 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314463)

Also, it is worth noting that the files that your folders may have been converted into may not be 32 kB in size. They may actually be smaller, depending on how your file system is configured. This is more likely for drives with lower data capacities. The smallest size possible should be 512 bytes. (If this is the case, you probably have one slow hard drive.)

Also worth noting is that these procedures can be used for devices that use the FAT filing system. The file size of the converted folders in these systems will most definitely be 512 bytes.

And on one final note, you may have to log in as the system administrator to be able to access some of your missing files/folders. If this still doesn't work, try unhiding hidden and system files/folders.

I want to convert PST file to Office 365 with a third party device. I used many tools but changes only some folders at a time. I have several folders that need to be changed. If you know about any other device that changes all the files in a while.

Dear Friends,

I have a problem involving my Outlook 2002 PST file. I have had similar problems in the past, typically involving a PST file that had exceeded 2 GB file size limitation. This problem feels different to me, primarily because Outlook opens for literally one to five seconds, and then closes with no error message of any kind (which is different behavior than an experienced with the file size problem).

I've spent the last two days researching this, and it would appear that this is some sort of a PST file corruption problem of some sort. I purchased a software called "Kernel Outlook PST Repair," but the software does not function properly. It scans my PST file and looks like it's repairing something, but when I attempt to load the repaired PST file into a new Outlook profile, not all of the repaired data loads. As an example, I am attempting to recover approximately 40,000 e-mails. Of those 40,000, I am able to recover approximately 400.

More confusing, every time I go through this four-hour process of scanning, repairing and reloading into a new Outlook profile, I get a different end result, none of which come close to recovering everything I'm trying to recover (40,000 emails, 3,000 contacts, 900 calendar events, and 700 tasks, approximately).

ANY advice, help or direction will be very much appreciated.

Sincerely,

If you don?t have any technical skill then the only option you have is using a third party tool like  OST to PST Converter. If you have lost your Outlook mailbox
including all the folders like inbox, outbox, sent-items, deleted-items, drafts, contacts, calendars, notes (To, Bcc, Cc, Subject, Object, Date, and Time).

1. This PC (XP Home Ed./SP3) was running Office 2007 (as was mine).
2. Needing to be able to edit theses in more than one version of Word, I deinstalled Office 2007 and installed Office 2002 (Student/Teacher version) on this PC only. I had given thought to the .pst file, but believed that it would not be affected by changing the version of Office.
3. On finding that I can't open Outlook AT ALL, went searching for the .pst file (thinking it must have been corrupted) and found - nothing. Nada. Zip. There is nothing on this PC with a .pst suffix.
4. I copied the .pst file from the backup drive and put it into the appropriate place - C:\Documents & Settings\(User)\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook.
5. Still can't open Outlook: "Cannot open Microsoft Outlook. Could not open the item. Try again" - and trying again doesn't even raise this stupid error message.
6. Went into Control Panel and accessed 'Mail', created another profile for my late husband's account on this PC so as to be able to use that to open Outlook. I've now created not one but TWO different extra profiles, neither of which shows up in "Show Profiles"!
7. H E L P, please, someone!!!

I know it is not recommended to increase the size of the .pst file to more than 2 GB, but is there a way to increase the size of the file? Ive done some looking and I see there is some sort of registry setting we can change.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi folks, I help out at a charity just 1 day a week, so I have little time to diagnose problems on site. Thus I'm hoping someone here can offer some ideas to try on Monday when I go to the office.

The problem is quite simple, we export my collegue's MS Outlook 2002 calendar into a .pst file, no e-mail, just the calendar. Then we create a new TEXT based e-mail and try to attach the file. The paperclip button fails with a bell sound, the copy-'n-paste (CTRL+C / CTRL+V) method fails the same way. A couple of weeks ago I got drag-'n-drop to work, but now that fails too. All of these methods work fine on another PC running Outlook 2000 on Windows 2000, so it certainly should work (although the other PC had little data to export so the file may have been smaller - I need to check this).

I haven't had a chance to check if file size is an issue or file extension. If the former then I can use a file-split tool, if the latter then I can simply rename at one end and rename-back at the other end. However if it's a bug then I'm upgrading I guess. BTW the PC runs XP Pro with SP2 and automated upgrading switched on, so it has been fully patched; although heaven only knows if that's a good thing.

I've got Outlook 98 on my desktop with a 397 addresses in it that I'd like to move to Outlook 2002 on the laptop. I can move files via my home network so that's easy to do.

I've located the .wab file folders on both machines and moved a copy of the OL98 file over to the laptop folder, but the previous owner's file keeps showing up in OL2002 Contacts even though I've moved that file to another place.

The other thing I just noticed while double checking my .wab folder is that it is an old one, even though it is the only one that shows up in a search. Have they changed the designation or something?

I did a test move of another folder using Export/Import and it seemed to work with a .pst folder, but if I do it with my Contacts list and export it to a .pst folder, will it convert back in Outlook 2002?

As always, tips and advice are appreciated.
 

A:Moving Outlook 2002 Contacts/Address file?

Exporting the settings as a .pst file will allow the transfer of your contact information/list to Outlook 2002 using the Import/Export utility. That is the simplest way to transfer information. If the previous owner's file continues to appear within Outlook 2002 and you have located it (I would attempt this now but I have just uninstalled office XP) it would make sense to replace and remove it - though I'm not sure about the cross-compatibility of the .wab format between the two versions.
Hope this helps,
James.

I use Contacts in Outlook 2002 for a database. Now, for some reason, when the database Contact file is open, Outlook will Freeze on a contact. Any contact.
The message which comes up to "send a report" sight OUTLLB.DLL or sometimes MSO.DLL as the culprit. I tried Detect & Repair in Outlook Help. I tried Repair in Add/Remove. Any help would be appreciated. I want to try and not re-install Office.

I recently upgraded from Windows 98 SE to XP Home. When I did, I opted to use Outlook 2002 rather than Outlook Express which I had used with '98. Two things happened from which I don't seem to be able to recover.

First - I lost all the messages from Outlook Express. I wish I had them back, but I can live without them - so far.

Second - I have somehow acquired a duplicate "Personal Folders" list. I have two "Outlook Today" - [Personal Folders] listed in my folders list. Everything in the first one is duplicated in the second. When I download messages, they appear in both "Inbox" folders. When I add a folder to the first, it appears in the second and visa-versa. If I delete a message in any of the sub-folders. it disappears from the other "mirror" sub-folder.

So far, I have been unable locate an actual duplicate file anywhere. It's almost like Outlook is reading the same file twice and displaying it's contents in two identical folders. Although it doesn't seem to hurt anything, I'd like to get rid of the duplicate displayed folder.

I'm a rookie on this stuff, so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.
 

A:Outlook 2002 Duplicate "Personal Folders"

Open Windows Explorer.
Go to Tools-Folder options.
Hit the View tab.
Make sure you ARE viewing hidden files/folders.
Make sure you can SEE file extensions for known file types.

Do a search for *.pst files.

You probably have two in the same location somehow.
Just move one of them someplace else.

You can't do it when Outlook is open. Only when it's closed.

You can also try running Detect and Repair from the help menu.

I run Outlook 2002 (Office XP Professional). The program now opens, says that it is checking "archive folders" because it was not closed properly file being checked for problems. Looks like it may start to send/receive and then closes immediately. It has been prompting me every time I open it with this "archive folder" checking for a while, but the program has always run. This started first thing Friday after the send/receive. The archive.pst file is: 1,064,704KB and the Outlook.pst file is: 637,072KB. Can anyone tell me how I can fix this. I'd like to keep my contacts and files if possible. Thanks!

I have a folder I never seen before showing, after I ran ComboFix a few weeks ago. "\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Boot BCD" (file).  - I thought it was created by ComboFix so I moved it to a USB I have. I'd like to know where this folder goes or what to do with.
 
I did some reading and searching in my PC, in this path "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup". #1 String Value name "CmdLine"  "ValueData" is "C:\Program Files (x86)\jv16 PowerTools 2012\RegCompact\RegCompact.exe". #1 other String Value "SystemPartition" "ValueData" has "\Device\HarddiskVolume1". I moved "\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Boot BCD" to "D:HP_RECOVERY" i.e. "D:\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Boot BCD". I assume jv16 Power Tools 2012 Registry Compact uses this folder(?) because I ran it yesterday and on reboot/compacting it ran so long, it seems. I turned the PC off. I then moved that folder "\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Boot BCD" to "D:\", ran RegCompact again and all went fair. My PC seems to boot slower and run slower. - I've looked high & low to resolve this w/o asking for help, until today. Running W7 x64, Thanks in advance,
-Dale

A:Folder with #2 sub folders, one BCD file

The BCD is short for Boot Configuration Data. It took the place of boot.ini in XP. The BCD registry file is located at \Boot\Bcd on the active partition. If you have the 100MB System Reserved Partition it would be there. I am no Combofix expert but I assume it created a copy of the BCD store.
