Greetings,
After i have installed Office Suite Service, i tried to start Outlook 2007. But when i attempted to start it a pop-up box stating: Outlook .ost is in use
Anyone have any suggestions how to repair .ost?

Thanks in advance,
Allan Baird
 
make sure that no 3rd party programs are accessing outlook data. if you get the error and are sure no other programs is using it, close Outlook, delete the ost file for your account and restart outlook.
 
Thanks for your assistance, but i still getting this error
 
Have you rebooted since this error started?
 
Hello Allan,
Try these steps: - Right-click the task bar and select “Task Manager“. - Select the “Processes” tab. - Look for anything named “Communicator“, “Lync“, “ucmapi” or “Outlook“. If you find any items related to these, select it, then select the “End task” button.

Good luck,
Brian
