    I just reformatted and reinstalled everything - I always back up my outlook forders so usually this isn't a big deal.

    This time though, and this has never happened to me before, when I go to:

    File | Open | Outlook Data File...

    and browse to my old inbox and archive pst files, I get a message that says:

    Every time I've done this before it has worked - I am signed on as administrator, just like before.

    Any ideas?

    :doh: find the answer on another site - when I copied the old files back onto the hard disk the "read only" attributes were set - cleared them and now it seems to work fine.
