When trying to move outlook.pst from a vista computer to a win7 computer I had what I thought to be some strange issues. I eaisly located the .pst on the old computer in the C:\users\lauren\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook directory. I wanted to paste
this into the Win7 computer. In outlook 2007 on the Win 7 computer when I look under: Tools > Account Settings > Data Files, it shows the .pst file stored in; C:\users\lauren\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook, exactly the same location as on the vista computer.
However (on the Win 7 computer) when I open Windows Explorer and look at that directory there is no "AppData" folder listed! I kinda solved this by copying my old .pst to "My Documents" and going into Tools > Account Settings > Data Files and adding it
as a new .pst file then making it the default and deleting the other one. It appears to work fine. What continues to trouble me is why can't I see the C:\users\lauren\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook directory in Windows Explorer on my Win 7 machine? It
showed up just fine on the Vista computer.
