Default Restore Backup from Outlook 2003 into Windows 7(64)

Old laptop running XP; did backup of Outlook 2003 pst files using microsoft personal folders backup tool, to ext. hard drive. Connected hard drive to new laptop running Win 7(64). How do i restore the bu? All attempts met with error message saying I do not have authorization to access the file.

Then tried to export the pst files from old laptop to ext hard drive. Connected hard drive to new laptop and tried to import the exported files into Outlook 2003. Got a similar message saying I did not have permission to access the selected files.

Please help

Bill.

If you're going to use brain-dead posting host like outlookforums, at least
supply the linefeeds. Your paragraphs each come out as one big long line.

To open the PST you created, copy it to some folder on your hard drive, like
Documents\Outlook Data. Then either use the Mail applet in Control Panel to
add it to your mail profile or, in Outlook, click FileOpenOutlook Data File
and browse to where you put it. Select it and click OK.
