    Moving the .PST file to a different location (OL 2K >)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    Please don't <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39> me or poke my <img src=/S/eyeout.gif border=0 alt=eyeout width=15 height=15>, but I seem to have lost the instructions about moving the .PST file to a different location rather than the standard one MS thinks is best for you.

    Could you be so kind [angle] and redirect me again.

    Try:

    1] Close Outlook
    2] Make a backup
    3] Move the .pst file to location of choice
    4] Start Outlook. When it complains it can't find the .pst, browse for and select it.

    <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> Leif

    But when you said "2] Make a backup" did you actually mean it? I mean do people make backups? Why just in case something should happen, Oh Pisha... <img src=/S/bananas.gif border=0 alt=bananas width=33 height=35> <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> I live on the edge...

    But maybe that is why I need a <img src=/S/newbrain.gif border=0 alt=newbrain width=21 height=22> and my <img src=/S/eyeout.gif border=0 alt=eyeout width=15 height=15> with some <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>...

    Thanks a Million <img src=/S/money.gif border=0 alt=money width=17 height=15>, this worked fine with and without a backup. I tried it two ways <img src=/S/duck.gif border=0 alt=duck width=23 height=23>

    No - it's not necessary to make a backup. I just didn't want to be responsible if you moved your .pst and couldn't find it again <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
