Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer. This is Mahbub Shahin can assist you.
You have to export calender file from outlook then import it to new machine.
Open Outlook. Select the File tab. Click Open, Import.
Select "Export to a file." Click Next.
Select a file type from the dropdown menu. Click Next. Note: To export recurring appointments or tasks, select "Outlook Data File (.pst)." Choose "Comma Separated Values (Windows)" for compatibility with Excel and other applications.
In the folder list, select the Calendar folder to export. Click Next.
Click Browse and save the exported file. Click Next.
Under "The following actions will be performed," confirm the "Export Appointments from folder: Calendar" box is checked.
Select option (or accept defaults) to Map Custom Fields. Click Finish. Set a date range. Click OK.
Internet Calendar (.ics) files can be imported to Outlook by double-clicking the file. For other file types:
Open Outlook. Click the File tab. Click Open and Import.
Select "Import from another program or file." Click Next.
Select "Comma Separated Values (Windows)" as the import file format. Click Next.
Click Browse and select the file you wish to import. Select options for handling duplicate events. Click Next.
Select the Calendar as the destination folder. Click Next.
Select from options (or accept defaults) to Map Custom fields or change the destination folder. Click Finish.

My hard drive on my old laptop died and I have to have the data recovered from it.
I wasn't able to export the file before the laptop crahsed, but have had the files recovered. Is it possible to import them? I have looked in the Outlook folder but cannot find any .ics files, only .pst.
You have to run your old laptop then follow the steps. I mean you have to export *.ics file then import it to your new computer. Normally you do not able to locate *.ics file.
File -> Save Calendar. It saves the file as .ics which is the standard iCalendar file format used by the iCal app.
