  • Hi,

    Have you installed the Outlook application on your new machine? Have you got any error messages?

    Please turn off the antivirus software temporarily to have a check.

    As an alternative choice, we could try to use the USMT( User State Migration Tool ) included in the Windows SDK to transfer the files.
    Here is a link for reference:
