I want to import my Outlook calendar from my laptop to my desktop. I saved it as a PST file and while importing, I got "You are importing data to a location that does not fully support Unicode. To avoid loss of multilingual data, it is recommended that you choose a location that support Unicode, such as a Microsoft Office Outlook Personal Folder’s File." I proceeded and got many duplicates as a result. How can I do this successfully?
How to go about Importing Calendar?
Assuming that your email account is being installed an Exchange server, this is the easiest: with your laptop, set up Outlook in CACHED EXCHANGE mode. That will make a copy of your entire mailbox and calendar (and tasks) on your laptop or desktop. Whenever you're using the laptop or desktop, it will synchronize with the Exchange server, so you're mailbox will be the same on laptop and desktop and wherever else.
If your email account is installed in other server not in Exchange server, please follow this steps.
1. In outlook of the source machine choose File then Import and Export
Choose Export to a file and the type of file will be .pst
2. Choose which folders you wish to export and give it the location where you want the pst file store and click Finish. Now on the destination Outlook go to File then Import and Export
3. Take that file on a pen drive and bring it to the laptop. Open Outlook and choose Import from another program or file scroll down and locate Personal Folder File (.pst) choose the folders to import and go.
The menus of Outlook will vary depending upon which version you are using but the steps are the same.
