Transfer Microsoft Outlook File From One Computer To Another

Q: Transfer Microsoft Outlook File From One Computer To Another

Good day,

I am attempting to transfer MS Outlook file from one computer to another. I have successfully transferred the file from the CD to the appropriate Outlook folder on my C drive. I then utilized the following steps: 1)open outlook 2) tools, services, (the services screen opens) add button, (the add services to profile screen opens) 3)select the personal folders from the drop-down and OK the create/open personal folder screen appears 4) select the appropriate file to be restored and click on the "open" button. At this point I receive an message that indicates that the file which I have chosen is "not a personal folders file". When I close this message it is followed by another message indicating "properties for this information service must be defined prior to use. In the past I have successfully completed an Outlook transfer but it appears that I am not doing something right this time around. It would be very much appreciated if anyone could assist me. Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I currently just got a new laptop, and I am trying to transfer my email on outlook to my new computer. I followed the microsoft directions of getting the .pst off the old computer and then importing through outlook. Everything was doing fine, but the next time outlook was opened, it froze. after force closing the program, it went to safe mode the next time i opened outlook, but did a similar thing but showed a check list of things that it was updating. But after 3 hours there was no progress, I force closed outlook again. The third time I opened outlook, it went to a recovery mode where it ran an installer for office, but nothing was changed. Also something that might help is that the .pst file is almost 10gb.

I don't know how else to describe what is going on, but if you have any question that would help you figure out what is going on.

I'm trying to use the file transfer wizard that was pre-installed on my new Dell Dimensions E510 computer (to transfer files from old computer to new). It prompts me that I will also need to run the program on the old computer, either by creating a wizard disc or using the Windows XP disc (which I don't have b/c it was pre-installed). It says to create a discby inserting a blank, formatted disc into the new computer's disc drive. It then gives 4 options to choose from, however the option I want, to create a wizard disc in the following drive, is not highlighted. It won't allow me to burn another disc apparently, I can only choose I already have a windows disc, I will use the Windows XP cd, or I don't need a disc at all. WHY?! I already bought a usb/serial transfer cable to do this and I'm not sure why the software won't allow me to burn a disc. Any suggestions?!
Thanks Much!!

I have a customer database stored in the "Contacts" section of Microsoft Outlook. I would like to export the contacts to Symantec ACT but the export always leaves out one of the memo fields that has important information in it.

Any suggestions on how to transfer ALL the fields from outlook contact records would be appreciated.

A:Outlook File Transfer

Try this:

From within Outlook (I am using Outlook 2002)

Choose File
Choose Export
Export to a file - click Next
Choose Comma separated value (windows) - click Next
Choose the file to export (Contacts) - click Next
Type the file name and path - click Next
Click to select the Export box...... and click on Map Custom Fields
Make value selections (see what is in the memo field), choose the field to populate and click Next. Clear All to redo selections.
Click OK
Click Finish when done.

I've done this before and had to redo it a couple of times to get the right values to populate the right fields in ACT.

Good Luck!

First you open the e-mail you want to transfer. Then either on the open e-mail or in the top toolbar of Outlook click "File" then "Save as..."

The key on getting it back into Outlook is to change something in the saved e-mail. Even if you have to change it back.

My old laptop died and want to port my outlook contact list to my new laptop (Window7)
I pulled the old HD and installed it in a USB 2.0 device housing. The old drive is OK and have ported my excel files to my new laptop.What is procedure for transfering Outlook Contact file from old to new computer ?

A:Transfer Outlook Contact file

According to MICROSOFT the file you need to copy from the old hard-drive should be in a folder with a path like the following: "drive:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook" You need to replace "drive" with the drive letter (e.g. D) and "<user>" with your Windows user-name (e.g. Administrator). Then, just paste the file in folder of a similar path on the new hard-drive system partition. You may need to enable the "Show hidden files" option in "Folder Settings" in "Control Panel" in Start menu to be able to access those folders. Or follow the Microsoft guide step by step.

I have not the faintest how to do this. My friend mentioned NetBios( maybe?), which i'm assuming is a file-transfer protocol for machines on a LAN. I'm really new at all this, so assume nothing.

if you have outlook express and you have a hotmail account, and the hotmail account is setup in outlook express, you can just drag your email to the hotmail inbox icon and it will upload it.

so if you have any webmail that works with outlook express you should be able to do it.

I am transferring info from my old computer to my new one.

and from MS Outlook Express to the same program on my new pc.

I know how to export the Address book, only the instructions in Outlook appear to be for exporting the file contents to another windows address book, and not between computers.

I've searched for .WAB files and found them. When I opened, one seems to be just a shell of Outlook Express. This one is called Default.WAB

Another .WAB file has my name, but when I click, the information is older than the contents of my current Address Book. I checked the date and it's 2001.

(( scratching my head )) Where's the contents of my CURRENT Address book stored?


Once I find this, I would also like to locate the files that comprise the contents of my current e-mail INBOX so that I can transfer them over to the new computer too.

Any thoughts?

This should be possible, right? As long as I can isolate the right files to copy over?

Help appreciated.

Hello, everyone!

I have a friend that has used Outlook for many years on her Windows XP computer. She has now bought a new Windows 8.1 computer and would like to put Outlook on that one, too. She knows she probably will have to buy a new Office Suite software, but the problem is that her current Outlook has a L.O.T. of folders and emails saved from her business. She would like to have all that plus settings and email address information transferred. I looked at the Outlook program (I don't use it so I am quite unfamiliar with it), but only saw the option to export one file at a time.

Really? Am I missing something? Because on her Outlook, this could take days!

My email program has an export function that basically packs up the ENTIRE program into a data .cab file and once the new program is installed on a new computer, will import EVERYTHING all at once, setting the program up so that it is identical to the original one.

My accounting software will allow me to make a backup of the whole thing, then once the software is installed on a new computer, I can run a back up and voila' ...... it's just like the original.

Surely Outlook will do the same thing?

A:Transfer folder from outlook to different computer

If you only want to transfer a particular Outlook folder (ie not every Outlook folder), open Outlook, click File > Import & Export > Export to a Personal Folders file (pst)

In the dialog-box, expand the folder tree and highlight the folder you wish to export.
Export it to a removable storage device. The file will be called backup.pst

Plug the removable storage device into the other PC.
Open Outlook on that PC.
Click File > Import & Export > Import from another program or file
For file type choose Personal Folders File (PST)
Navigate to where the backup.pst file is on the removable storage device.
Double-click that file, then click "Next" etc.
That folder should now appear in Outlook.

I probably missed a few steps in the export and import processes, but nothing which would cause any problems as it's quite intuitive to follow each dialog-box.

- if you just want to copy some folders then its more of a pain, you can export each folder to a pst one by one and then import it on the other machine, like in http://www.techsupportforum.com/mic...transfer-outlook-files-computer-computer.html

- theres a pandali tool mentioned in that link which makes it quicker. you can grab a bunch of folders at once. theres more info at http://pandali.com/move_outlook_folders.html

I did try copying the folders titled outlook express on my old computer onto my new one but it didn't work (although i think i missed one anyway)

I have figured out how to individually save the messages as text files, so can save them that way, but is there a quicker/more efficient way of doing it?

Would be great if i could just copy the lot with accounts already set up etc, but main thing i want to do is save the messages, so anything that will acheive that is all i really need (& ideally quickly as my old hard drive is pretty dead and i don't know how long it will hold out for before the CLUNKING is replaced with nothing)

Also my old computer is set up on Windows 98. When my friend FINALLY remembers to get the disk for me, my new computer will be on Windows 2000 i think, but could be XP, so i'm guessing that could also effect what i'm able to do with outlook express transfer stuff.

A:Computer won't transfer to a secondary file??

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

To go to another website through a link from the website open on your browser, you do not need Acrobat or Acrobat Reader. These programs are required only to open PDF files either on local drive or on a website.

In your example you are in Nextag web site and you tried to go to Newegg website by clicking on the Newegg name. Is the Newegg name on the website given as a link or not. Usually a link is indicated with a different color for text and when you keep the mouse on this link, the mouse cursor changes to a hand and in the web browser's status bar the target website's address is given. If it is a link with Newegg website as target you will be transferred to that site, when clicked on the link. If it is just text then by clicking on it, nothing happens.

About the forms on the webpage also you could not download the forms.

Could be your mouse not working properly? I mean the left button to select and to open a link not working properly. Try the Right button for the Left button function and see. If it is working then your buttons functions have been reversed. You can fix this by going to the mouse applet in Control Panel.

Please check your mouse. It it still does not work, give us more details.

comp1 is a amd 2000xp with 512mb ram 80gb hard drive

Hi and Welcome to TSF

These links should set you on your way

Or you can try the Backup Wizard
You can transfer your email messages manually, using the Import / Export commands of Outlook Express, but transferring other settings such as accounts, rules, signatures, and identities is a very complicated process that requires advanced technical skills. Outlook Express Backup Wizard makes it very simple to transfer your data by following these easy steps:

1. Backup your Outlook Express with Outlook Express Backup Wizard.
2. Copy the resulting backup file to the target computer via LAN, CDR, or removable drive.
3. Restore the backup file to Outlook Express on the second computer. To do this, run the wizard, choose the Restore option, and select your backup file.

my sister used to have a dell 4300 dimension and decided to get a new computer, a dell 8300 dimension. she thought she could get me to just pop in the old hard drive (which isn't so old. proabably a few months old) but "suprise" the new computer only accepts hard drives with SATA interfaces and the older hard drive is only an ATA (i am probably saying this all wrong, i am good at tinkering, not with getting names correct).

so i figure why not to a puter->puter file transfer. well, the computers refuse to talk to eachother. i connected them with a cat-5 crossover ethernet cable and when the new puter tries to talk to the old puter, it is like the old puter is giving us the silent treatment. i get a 712 (or was it 721) error and says the old puter is not responding.

i ran the networking wizards to try to put them in the same workgroup and they both say they are, but neither is talking to the other.

oh, and btw, her puter is on a wireless network card which IS talking to my puter. so i can see the new puter fine, but the old puter is off in limbo.

any help which would lead to a successful file transfer (and not to throwing the puters off the balcony) would be greatly appreciated.

oooh, one more thing. for some reason she figured she did not need a floppy drive, plus dell gave her a dvd/cd rom, no burning ability at all. (which was really stupid since now there is no way of writing anything with her computer onto any kind of disc.)

A:computer to computer file transfer problems

When the two machines are connected using the cross over network cable, check that both network cards LED lights light up, as to show there is some kind of connection.

Go to a dos window, type IPCONFIG. Get the IP of the machine, go to the other machine, open a dos window and type PING +the ip number. If you get a ping back, then you have a connection. If you dont, then go into the IP network properties of each machine, and set the SUBNET masks to, then give each PC a fixed IP, eg. 192.168.0,10 &, reboot and try pinging again.

If you are getting pings, in your network settings, make sure you have the 'client for microsoft network installed' & also file sharing, then look at the workgroup names, make sure there the same, and also make sure the PC names are NOT the same.

Once all this is done, share a folder. If you cant find how to share, make sure the file-sharing is installed and enabled.

Then browser the network and transfer your files..

It also shuts down every time I try to run a full system scan using adaware. I can run a smart scan using adaware and it gets through that just fine. Please shed some light on my problem.

I seek non-propietary software which will transfer photos from my Kodak DX3600 camera to my computer running Win98SE. Kodak software, I suspect, contains hidden files of no use to the user except to keep him (or her) on a leash to their Tech Support. I resent paying good money to be flim-flammed in this way. In the present state of programming art, the transfer of graphic data files (medical x-rays etc.) should, I think, be a rather a rather well understood matter. This annoying commercial bottleneck renders my expensive camera useless. Any suggestions (except avoiding Kodak products- which I intend to do in future) would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everybody! Long-time listener, first time caller.

My laptop of four years (a toshiba) recently lost the ability to charge and will no longer power up. I have files on the hardrive that I'd like to transfer to another computer, but since I can't even get it to power-up, a simple flashdrive just won't do. I have a few options:

1)Since the problem dealt with the input in the back becoming loose, I thought about taking it apart and repairing it so it can charge correctly. I've heard it's kind of dangerous, and I've seen tutorials, so it's really not something I want to attempt or ask anyone to do for me.
2) Buy a new battery and hope it lasts long enough for me to extract pics/music/papers/etc.
3) Somehow get at the laptop hard drive and use it as an external hard drive to transfer the files.

So, in short, I know these are my options, but I have no idea how to start pursuing these things, or if there is an easier/better way to get the information out of my laptop. I'd prefer a way to keep using my laptop, but I understand if it's just not possible anymore.

Thanks in advance! Trust that I wouldn't take up your time if this stuff wasn't important to me. -TGH

A:Dead computer = file transfer problem...

Option 3 is the cheapest and easiest.
The drives are usually fairly easily removable without taking it apart.
In most cases it is a single screw to remove the disk holder from the case and then just 4 screws to remove the disk from the holder.
There will also be a pull off adapter on the connecting pins.

Not sure if this goes in this or the hardware forum cause I'm not sure what's up...

I've been recording TV shows via ATI Video Wonder USB 2.0 onto my Gateway laptop running Windows XP Home Edition. The ATI VW came with a program that translates the video files for the ATI into other formats. I've been using Mpeg1 for various reasons.

I've then been using Windows Movie Maker to cut out pieces I don't want and translating the Mpeg1 into .wma files.

Recently my laptop has begun cutting out any time I attempt to use ATI to translate .vcr (the raw TV recording) into .mpg (the Mpeg1), or when I try to save a video I've made in WMM into .wma. It doesn't shut down or give me an error, it simply cuts as if the battery had been ripped out mid-operation.

I've tried using safe mode, with the result that it seems to cut out sooner than usual. I've still got 30% of the hard drive free and I've defragmented it to see if it would have an effect.

The .vcr files are usually 1-2 gigabytes, the .mpg files usually about 70% of that size-wise, and the individual segments I try to save in .wma are usually 100-300 megabytes.

I'm not sure what other information might be needed. I've run out of resources from my friends and family as to what might be wrong...


A:File Transfer Computer Cutout Problem...

While I'm not real well versed in video - I'd suspect corruption in one of the video programs that you're using. I'd suggest updating/reinstalling these programs.Another possibility is that the programs ran out of resources to complete the tasks and then terminated themselves. Check your Event Viewer ( Instructions here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/ ) for any Application errors at the time that this happens.

Hi there eightforums,

Yesterday I was transferring files from one internal drive to the other when the file transfer process froze, and then my computer froze. After 10 minutes I powered off the computer by holding down the power button. Since then windows cannot operate for more than 3 to 4 minutes. Same problem operating the computer on a clean boot. During this time disk usage in the task manager goes up to 100% and stays there. I can run the computer in safe mode without the problem manifesting. I have performed a system restore but that did not resolve the issue. I ran chkdsk on C: and D: successfully but the issue persisted. I also defragged C: drive (OS is on C with defraggler in safe mode. Tried to defrag D: next but got BSOD with error KERNAL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR (spaceport.sys). Windows still freezes within minutes.

I've tried googling different versions of this problem but none of the suggestions (mostly to try and end tasks in task manager before windows freezes) have been successful. I'm at the end of what I can try and do via google-fu and I'm hoping someone here can help (please). SF Debug Tool files attached.

A:File transfer between 2 drives failed now computer freezes

I suggest you to open the case and make sure all the cables (power & sata) connected to D: drive are tightly connected then try running chkdsk again.

Bob the best antivirus Attachment protector is yourself, don't open it if you are unsure of it's origins. Saying that, the I Love You Bug certainly had it's own appeal. I was bitten as it had a coworkers name on it who certainly wasn't in love with me, so I wanted to know why... Ten minutes later we all knew something was up.

There is a simple way to view attachments without opening them. Hit Ctrl+F3 and a message source box will open, scroll down and if you see code then it is advisable to delete the entire e-mail. Shift+Delete.

Now, there is another way to transmit a virus and it is through a Signature. The Kak worm is successfully doing that. I was protected the other night from viewing that Signature while in Outlook Express, a prompt came up asking if I wanted to run an activeX component not marked as safe. Being a bit more cautious with my own computer I said no and was rewarded with the reason. The poster was complaining about a signature being added that was calling for a kak.htm file. I also hit Ctrl+F3 and scrolling down the message source, I could read the entire code for the Kak virus. With that said these are my settings for Internet Zones in IE Tools>Internet Options>Security>Custom Level
