Thread Starter 
I'm in the process of fixing someones computer and I can't even get it to boot into safe mode. No biggie I'm just gonna do a full restore but she needs her e-mails from outlook saved. I need to know for sure before I wipe everything were all the e-mails are saved at. Thanks for your help.

OS: Vista home premium

I think.

Edit: AppData should be a hidden folder.

Also checking Roaming, there should be an Outlook folder in there as well.

If you do a full restore, your emails in the pst (archive) file won't be affected.

However, its probably best to save the pst file before doing it, just to be sure. You can find the location using Outlook: File --> Data File Management

Ctrl + C the address into your explorer, and you'll be taken to the location.

Don't worry about the mailbox file (ost), as it will sync with the Exchange server once you're done with the restore.

I can't get into outlook to do that, the laptop won't boot up even in safe mode. I have the HDD out of it and hooked up to my sig rig via USB and am transferring her pics and music now, but I HAVE to get the e-mails. I'm going to be doing a restore from the factory installed partition

Finished.

Roaming files are irrelevant to backing up a users mailbox.

You will find outlook.pst and archive.pst... copy both from recovery console. To something like a flashdrive.

Doing a system restore should not affect them anyways.

the only thing that worries me about this is that there is no outlook folder. There is a windows mail folder and a windows live mail folder.
