How to Cahnge the Location of Email

By binduau ·
Dear Freinds,
Great Tech-Head site i love it!

Now then lets get to it.
!st off i think it is totally moronic to store all one's documents in or under one folder as if you did lose or corrupt inadvertently or via virus the directory marker in the boot record you lose everything in all folders under that directory. I hope the virii makers never figure this out or everyone in the world will lose all their documents. Stupid stupid stupid.

Now that that is said. i knwo you can change it and i have done so. But i cannot figure out how to (In office XP) change the location of the outlook store folders (email default loaction) i have got the backup engine for outlook but i do not want my email stored in the stupid documents and settings folder period .... My question is does anyone know how to change this idiotic fact?

with respect

for Outlook?

For Outlook, you can change where you store stuff e.g. personal folders if thats your question. Might want to look at KB149588 how to change or move the .pst file for personal folders

you can do it in the following way first create a folder in your destenation partition for example in d: drive u create folder "outlook mail".

open the outlook and then clk on then file> data file managment> add> ok> clk on save in box > browse d: drive and there "outlook mail" folder as u create before. then > ok> if u need password then set it> then > ok> now there u see 2 personal folder just note down the path of other folder that is exist it before in u r window that is the default folder of outlook. after get note down the path close the outlook.

now open my computer> tools> folder option> view tab page> click show all files and unhide all protected files> ok.

now open the path of the folder that u note down previous> copy the file outlook.pst in to d:\outlook mail make sure in last rename the file with the exsting one.

now again open the outlook and clk on the newly created folder and u r all data is moved to u r d:\outlook mail folder.

if u face any problem then let me know u r Operating system deatils as well as u r login name that u use for u r logon purpose bcoz the file store location will be depent on the profile settings
