I recently had to reformat my hard drive, and reinstall Outlook 2007.
Previously Outlook looked to a PST called Outlook1. Upon reinstalling Outlook
it created a new PST called Outlook2, which is now its default. I can open
Outlook1 as a Personal Folder, but not under the main, top mailbox. I can see
the directory and PST holding the data (showing in the main mailbox) listed
in Account Settings, but no way of changing it. Is there?

Click Tools>Account Settings. Choose the Data Files tab. Select the PST you
want to be the default and click Set as Default. Stop and restart Outlook.
