the mainboard went up in my laptop. I've bought a new machine, hooked old HD to external bay, can surf the disk, but can't seem to find the .pst files from outlook. My whole professional life is in outlook....and ideas

What version of Windows ?

They should be there, but will be in a hidden folder.

Example: in XP they will be:

Default location: C:\Documents and Settings\User Profile\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\

You need to go to my computer or computer depending on version XP/Vista/ W7 then tools,Folder options (or from the control panel, Folder options) /View put a dot in Show hidden files and folders, then you'll find them.
