How to "open" PST files. I have backed up my computer (Windows 8 OS) with Clickfree C6 external hard drive.
However, when I attempt to open the PST files, I am directed to save folder to the desk top. When attempting to open the folder (Outlook.PST files) on the desk top, download dialogue opens up an I am asked if I wish to open or save the file. When checking the open box, the system repeats itself. Do you wish to open or save - open etc. I have followed all directions given.

Outlook 2007. You appear to be bent towards Outlook 2010. Not everyone is using Outlook 2010.
My question is/was, how do I open my PST files.

I can remove it if you feel such is called for.

You can import them and use the Outlook app to use what's in them.

If you want something to just open them, let's hope others will chime in.
