Hi

I backed up Office 2007 and Vista using Microsoft Backup, upgraded the machine to Windows 7 and Office 2010 after backing up to an external hard drive using Microsoft Backup.

When I try to import the restored *.PST in Outlook 2010 I get the permissions message. The files are not read only and rights in the restored folder are adequate?

A modicum of research would have told you NOT to use import.

Here are just some of the problems importing a pst file causes.

Copy the pst file to your Documents folder. Ensure that any read-only attribute is off.

Then in Outlook 2010 do this:

1. Click the Office logo in the upper-left corner of the screen.

2. Select Account Settings then Account Settings… again.

3. Click the Data Files tab.

4. Click Add…

5. Then browse to where you put the PST file

Did you copy the PST to the local hard drive?

If not, copy the PST file to the local hard drive, open Outlook->file->open ->Outlook data file and select the PST file from the saved location.

Outlook 2010 doesn't have File-Open-Outlook Data File - you have to do it the way I posted.
