Hi,

Windows 7 32bit, Outlook 2007, Hotmail Connector 14.0.

Looking for a way to transfer the OST (is it an OST?) file from the default C:\Users dir to somewhere else (D: or E: drive).

What I tried:

Control Panel - Mail - Data Files

In the data file properties dialog box, I see the data file logical name in there (email@hotmail.com); however the physical filename is shown as " Not Available" .

Can someone help?
Thanks in advance!

That is not supported.

Any specific reason why you want to change its location?
Note that it is just a cache file; your orignal copy remains on-line. If something happens to the ost-file, you can simply delete it and it will be rebuild.

Hi, well I think it is pretty reasonable to try and move the data file off of the C: drive. My OST file is pretty large, plus we may have multiple accounts. Too bad it's not supported...

Thanks for the response.
