    Using the program below:

    OpenedFilesView v1.46 - View opened/locked files in your system
    http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/opened_files_view.html

    I see that Outlook 2007 has FIVE copies of my Outlook.PST open at the same time! I have verified this with another similar program I have.

    Does anyone have any idea WHY Outlook does this? Seems to me this might cause or lead to problems.

    Do five copies exist on your system? If not, it is just five handles from Outlook. I would not worry about it.

    NO, there is only one copy.

    But not being a Windows programmer, I'd like to understand why Outlook needs 5 "handles" to work with this file?
