Default Change Outlook 2007 Default PST

I recently had to reformat my hard drive, and reinstall Outlook 2007.
Previously Outlook looked to a PST called Outlook1. Upon reinstalling Outlook
it created a new PST called Outlook2, which is now its default. I can open
Outlook1 as a Personal Folder, but not under the main, top mailbox. I can see
the directory and PST holding the data (showing in the main mailbox) listed
in Account Settings, but no way of changing it. Is there?

Click ToolsAccount Settings. Choose the Data Files tab. Select the PST you
want to be the default and click Set as Default. Stop and restart Outlook.
