✔ Best Answer
Yes, or use Copy/Paste. Put it in the same folder where the new outlook.pst is located (overwrite the new one with the backup copy). Make sure Outlook is closed before doing that.

On Windows XP, the default location of outlook.pst is here:

C:\Documents and Settings\user_id\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

You may have to enable "Show hidden files & folders" in order to find that location.
