Trying to import is what you're dong wrong. Never import when transferring
data Outlook-to-Outlook. Just open the PST with File>Open>Outlook Data
File. Then you can copy the data from the ANSI PST to a Unicode PST all you
want.

it still does not work. all that is copied is what was in the Deleted Items
folder in the old file. the inbox folder is still empty, and i know that
there is data in there, because the entire file size is 300+MB, and the size
of the old Deleted Items folder is <75 MB. Why is it not copying the entire
..pst file?

OK, you have a new .PST file and you've opened the old .PST file with
'File|Open|Outlook Data File'. You should have both folder sets visible in
Folder view. You should be able to click the Inbox folder in the old .PST
and drag and drop it into the new .PST file. Is that not working?

How did you copy from the old to the new PST file? The only way I know
is from inside Outlook, with both files open, using drag-and-drop (you
can use right-click drag-and-drop to select between Copy and Move).
