    Multiple pst files (2000)

    I have recently noticed that I have 2 lots of personal folders in my folder list. All the sub folders I have created are duplicated under my personal folders. However the two files are not synchronised. On further investigation I have 3 lots of pst files stored in the following locations:
    c:fixed emailmailbox.pst
    c:documents and settingsamandamailbox.pst
    u:fixed emailmailbox.pst
    I only actually want my mail stored on my u drive so that I can have a roaming profile. The .pst file on my u drive is clearly not one of the ones being used currently as the last modified date was back in June. Am I ok to delete my superfluous .pst files and then move the one I want on to the U drive?

    Any help much appreciated

    Yes, but first make backups, and you'll have to close Outlook before you can move the PST files around.

    Before deleting, see if you can right-click the PST in the folder tree and close/remove/disconnect it. This may help prevent "ghosts" from following you around in the future. To truly bury the ghosts, it also might be helpful also to use Tools>Services (Corporate Workgroup mode) or Tools>Accounts (Internet Mail Only mode) and remove any extraneous PSTs you find there.
