    I had a situation where I could not boot from my HD running XP Pro.
    Eventually I fitted a new HD and set up everything on it from scratch. I
    made my old HD the slave and intend to use it for some specialised tasks in
    future after wiping it and installing XP again. I could see the old files
    on that HD and copied some back. After a few weeks using the new HD I
    renamed the .pst file and copied the old one over from the slave, this has
    given me my address book and E-mails back. I would now like to add the
    recent data from the renamed .pst files to the copied back ones, can I do
    that?

    You can open 2 pst files. Expand both personal folders (press the plus sign
    on the left to become a minus) and then drag and drop email msgs. and
    contacts from one to the other. Childs play!

    Another method I was given and used:-

    You can by opening the pst files within Outlook. Try this:
    1.. Open the application MS Outlook.

    2.. Select the menu command: File | Import and Export...

    3.. Select: Import from other program or file.

    4.. In the next dialogue, select: file of personal folders (.pst).

    5.. Now you need to indicate the complete path for your old *.pst.message
    file

    6.. Next, indicate the folder into which you want to import the messages.

    7.. If you have several *.pst files, repeat this procedure for each of
    them.

    This is another useful pitch Derek. Anything that works is right. And
    fortunately everything can be done with many ways in computers, so we choose
    the best fit for us.
