    Outlook Calendar (2000/SR1)

    <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>Have a user that keeps 10 to 15 reminders going on their pc daily. Every few minutes she clicks sleep mode to remind again.
    My question is this: Her calendar file is 2200K+, but doesn't contain anymore than mine 13months back that is only 1430K. Would resetting reminders constantly increase the size of this folder?

    no, it shouldn't.

    you can also start outlook with the /cleanreminders switch. i don't think it is the problem though... but it won't hurt anything.

    also - if she has any custom forms or custom views, they would account for some of the file size differences.

    are you sure she doesn't have more appts or ones with attachments? use a table view (one of the group by views works) to see how many items she really has and if any are duplicated.

    Also, as far as your comparison between two calendars, if there are a lot of repeating items, that could account for the size difference, especially if anything was imported into the calendar. For example, we imported items from another PIM (Lotus Organizer), and when repeating items are imported, each one becomes a separate calendar item (instead of the repeating appointment being one item that appears on multiple days). I believe the same thing happens if calendar items are exported/imported through a .pst file.
