Problem locating Outlook PST file in backups RRS feed

  • Question

  • Had a hard drive crash, decided to just re-build and do a fresh install.  The PC that crashed was backed-up on WHS.  I can't locate my Outlook pst files in the backups.  This is a Win7 machine, I do not see the app data folder anywhere in the backups.  Anyone know where I should be looking in the back-up for my outlook pst files?

  • My PST file is at: c:\users\username-here\AppData\local\microsoft\outlook

  • yeah, that is where the pst files are located on a functional machine, but when looking at the back-up data/volume on the home server, under the users folder, there is no app-data folder.  that is my problem.
