Outlook Personal Folders - Duplicate Folders

P: n/a
I had a hard drive failure and had to re-load Microsoft Office XP. When I
first loaded, I had no data files so I imported my pst files from my old hard
drive and now I have double of everything and it's very confusing.

It appears that I have one set of imported folders that were created in the
folders initially created when I reloaded Office XP and now most of my old
data is in these folders as well. I did a test send email to myself and it
shows as sent in this set of sent items.

The second set of personal folders, inbox, etc., is also my old stuff. I
compared the two sets best I could and have transferred any missing info to
the newest set of folders as mentioned above. Note, my "test email" does not
appear in this set of folders so I assume the newest set of folders above is
what Outlook is utilizing. Now, I want to delete the old folders so I don't
see double, but I don't get that option.

I hope I'm making sense to someone. Any suggestions would be helpful as I'm
pulling my hair out!
