I recently replaced an internal HDD and installed a fresh copy of Win XP. A copy of the old C drive is on an external HDD. (I should not run any executables from the old copy.) I had extensive folders and files in the Outlook Folder List on the old setup and would like to recover them to the new system from the external drive. However, I don’t have the first idea on how to find or identify them. Can someone tell me the way to replace these folders and files?
C:\Documents and Settings\[yourusername]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
C:\Documents and Settings\[yourusername]\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
Should be able to import the *.PST, or copy the files into your new profile.
In My computer, under the “Tools” menu, go to “folder options”. On the “View” tab, you will find the option to select either;
- “Hide hidden folders”
-”Show hidden folders”.
Change your settings to the latter (Show), and you will see these folders.
When I said C:\…. I meant the external drive letter. You should be able to find these folders there, again they will be hidden.
To import old Archive folders, close Outlook and right-click the Desktop, or Start menu Outlook icon, (only these will work), and select properties.
“Solution for ver2003″
Select “Data Files” > Add……..
For other files (Not Archive). I Haven’t tried this, but should work…
Try in Outlook, File > Import and Export > Import from another program of file > NEXT > “Personal Folder .PST” > NEXT > ……….
This morning Damien had an 8 AM dentist appointment, because I am concerned about some of his teeth, they (the teeth) are missing enamel in some places, so I want to check that out, since Olya and I both have really bad teeth (good thing we are not horses, no one would ever buy us).
Both Olya and I really didnâ€™t feel well this morning, so we scratched our original idea of going together. I was going to take Damien to the dentist, and Olya was going to take Sergey into daycare.
With both of us under the weather, the kids were up bright and early of course. So I took the down stairs and let the watch TV so I could shower and dress in peace. Sergey protested when he figured out that the â€œElmo 2 hand 2 feetâ€ that Damien wanted, was not going to be shown. So he crawled off the couch with his bucket in one hand and a book in the other, stood up in front of me as I tried to leave the room, and started whining with all his might. That is until he noticed the talking sloth on the TV. We have a local HD channel 10-3 that plays all kid programming 24 / 7.
When I cam back down after my shower, and getting dressed, Sergey was still standing in the same place, still holding his bucket and book, still entranced by the Sloth.
I have to feed them and it is quicker (if more painful) to just turn the TV off, so that is what I did (the show had just ended anyway). Sergey was upset but looked to his brother for guidance. Damien made a dramatic moment out of it, standing up and throwing himself into a pile of blankets on the couch. I could just see the light bulb turn on in Sergeyâ€™s head, as he decided that they were going to both have a big fit over the TV being turned off. So he threw the bucket and book across the room, with a triumphant smile.
It was a short lived smile, because I told Sergey to pick up his things and told Damien to go wash his hands, and they did, and I donâ€™t know why, but I hope to duplicate the total obedience thing as soon as possible.
At the dentist Damien was freaking out, he didnâ€™t even want to get in the chair, I had to get in the chair and put him next to me. They took their time showing him the mirror, the probe, the air and water gun, the suction tube. But he still cried the whole time he was in the chair. But he did let them examine his teeth. Even though he is missing some enamel in places, his teeth are sound, and we just have to make sure he keeps them clean.
Once they told him it was all done, he perked up, and started being inquisitive, he looked out the window at the parking lot (we were 10 stories up), and at the tools. They gave him a bag of dental goodies, which he carried all the way back to daycare. He said bye to doctor Jim. When asked if he would be coming back in 6 months for another checkup, he quickly replied â€œNopeâ€!
Wll you have probably heard of Under Foot (When the kids keep getting in your way while you are trying to work), or Under Handed (like when they run off the the potty), now here is a new one, Under Butt (while trying to put some things away under the counter, Sergey walked under my lowering posterior).
Both Damien and Sergey have been getting very difficult to deal with. I think it’s because I don’t spend enough qaulity time with them. So I will try and spend more time interacting with them rather than just ordering them around. But that is very difficult with their language skills are so low.
Anyway I found some tips on Supper Nanny that I will try out.
Top tips for discipline
1. When your children are really young, discipline simply wonâ€™t work â€“ if theyâ€™re under the age of about two, and are doing something you donâ€™t want them to, simply pick them up and plonk them down in front of something else.
2. Try to motivate your kids to be well behaved â€“ it always works better then bribery or threats. Donâ€™t dismiss bribery though!
3. Pick your rules carefully â€“ make sure there are only a few, that theyâ€™re easy to understand and that you ALWAYS enforce them.
4. Try to have consistency with their mom, even if you donâ€™t live together. Children get confused if thereâ€™s no consistency. If mum is disciplining the kids, always back her up in front of them â€“ even if you donâ€™t agree, you can deal with that later.
5. Try to use praise for good behavior at least three to four times as much as you tell your children off for bad behaviour.
6. As your children get older, in their teenage years, itâ€™s your job to shift from a â€˜managerâ€™ role, where you organize their life and tell them what to do, into more of a â€˜coachâ€™ role, where you listen, understand, and offer your advice to them.
Damien was trying to growl out alll of his words for some reason this morning.
So when Damien said good morning it came out as GrroOD MORrrrniNGrrrr.
When I was singing Old Mac Donald, Damien growled the animal noises as well, except for Monkey, they still just said Ooo Ooo, and Eee Eee. Damien’s pig said OrrinKrr instead of oink, and his horse said NEihairrrr, instead of neigh.
So I started adding soft spoken animals to the farm just to see how Damine would growl them.
Bird: tweet tweet becameÂ Twrreet Trwerreet.
Bee: buzz buzz became, Brruzz Brruzz.
Snake: hiss hiss became, hissr Hissssrrrrr.
This morning Damien is alternating between his Heel Walk, and a new Inline Walk.
With the Inline Walk, Damien makes sure that the heel of his fron foot is in front of and in line with his back foot. I would have called it a tight rope walk but Damien was not using any hand animation, though that could have been because it was cold out and he had his hands in his pockets. Damien waould go from the Heel Walk to the Inline Walk, when we had to cross ice, so maybe it gives him more ballance.
