I recently changed my computer here at school (I am a teacher). When I purchased the new turbotax program for tax year 2016, I cannot find my prior year return. Help!!!

What file should I be looking for from my old hard drive?

The data file from tax year 2015 will have a file extension of .tax2015.  It is normally located in Documents and in the TurboTax folder.
