    Deleting Personal Folders (2000)

    I was locked out of my Personal Folder (which included my contacts, calendar, inbox, etc.) so created a new Personal Folder while the primary one was being debugged. Any ideas about how to delete the secondary PF? Thanks in advance...

    delete from where? if it's the default folder, close outlook and rename it - then open outlook. if it's a ghost in the fodler tree, you need to edit the registry.

    If I have understood you correctly, this may work.
    Right Click on the Secondary Personal Folder and select properties, then select Advanced. This screen will tell you where the .pst file (personal folder file) is stored on your drive.
    Exit out of these windows and move any data you want to keep into your Primary Personal Folder, then right click on the secondary Personal Folder and select Close "personal folder".
    You can then go to the location of the .pst file on the drive and delete it. Make sure you are not deleting the wrong one, because you could lose important data if you do.
