My Office 2010 beta just expired, so I had to uninstall MS Office 2010 and reinstall the official release.
After the uninstall, I saved my pst file to a different location and cleaned the AppData directory of Outlook which contained the pst files and other files. I installed Office 2010 and when I opened Outlook it missed the Outlook.pst file. So I put my old
pst file back in the AppData dir.
But when I select the pst file to open, it throws the message (translated from dutch): "Access is denied. You don't have permission to open C:\Users\..\..\..\..\Outlook.pst".
I checked the properties of the file. readonly was not selected and I changed the security permission for me to full control. (it was set to read & write) But this had no effect.
I moved my Outlook.pst and let Outlook 2010 create a new Outlook.pst file. After that I noticed that all my emailaccounts where still in place, so I wonder where Outlook saved my accounts. Now I wanted to import my Outlook_old.pst file, but I still get the message:
"Access is denied. You don't have permission to open C:\Users\..\..\..\..\Outlook.pst".
I really want my old mailbox back, so if any of you guys has an idea for me, I would be very grateful
Ps. I did the backup & replace of my Outlook.pst file a bunch of times in Office 2003 and Office 2007 and never got this message.
