|Good idea, Jennifer. I just assumed that this was common knowledge to most of y'all. |
My original problem was getting locked out of any account w/ Admin capabilities. Additionally, I had deleted the account (from User Accounts) that I use on a daily basis.
I followed someone from another forum's suggestion and Googled "NTPASSWD" and re-set my admin password using a bootable CD (the top listing at Google shows you how to make it).
After I got back in, I thought that all my data was gone, given that I had deleted the account. Turns out, as someone suggested, all the data was in my Documents and Settings: C:\Documents and Settings\%Account Name% (etc)
After that, I found my .pst files (use your Start Menu's "Search" option and put in ".pst" or Google some suggestions of where to look).
Originally, it wouldn't let me import the .pst files back into Outlook, so I copy and pasted them into another file (in this case, My Docs) and then imported them from there. My Calendar and Contacts came with them automatically.
Thanks to all you computer superheroes who helped me.
