Outlook 2000

By annaxleung ·
My outlook 2000 PST is too big. My computer do have space for it. So I Burned the Pst file into Cds. But when I try to open it from the CD Drive. I keep getting the error messages.
Here is how I open the pst, In the Outlook inbox:
File--> open-->personal folder file--> I choost the CD drive and find the Outlook.pst file.

Here is the pop error messages:
"Properties for this information service must be defined prior to use"
"File access is denied, you do not have permission required to access the file"


I did check the permission part. I set it for everyone and full control.

Please also let me know is there are any better way to archieve large pst files.

There is an article that deals with this. Type the following in the address box of Internet Explorer.

MSKB Q286146

Perhaps the pertinant item might be:
"...When you open a personal folders (.pst) file that is copied from CD-RW disks, the
file attributes for the personal folders (.pst) file must be changed from Read
Only to Archive before Outlook can use it."

I would also suggest that you right click the pst in folder view, choose properties the Advanced and click the button to compact the file

As the prior post stated, you cannot open a .pst file that's on a CD. I believe you will have to copy it back to your hard drive before you can remove the read-only attribute. Then you will be able to open it.

If you don't have enough space on your hard drive to copy it back, zip some files temporarily until you have enough spaces. You should also delete everything in your TEMP directories, and delete your temporary Internet files using IE's Tools, Options. This will also give you more disk space.

Once you get your .pst opened, clean it up. Delete things you may no longer need. Then as the proir answer stated, compact it. You may be surprised at how much smaller it gets.

In order to achieve larger .pst's, I would archive if I were you. That way, you're viewing just current e-mail (perinent e-mail)in your Personal Folder when you open Outlook. If you ever need to refer back to archived mail, you can import and close very simply to keep Outlook from bogging down.
