Outlook2010 - data file locations


Mr. Chips

Likes # 0

Having had a motherboard meltdown on my XP desktop PC I am now using a Windows7 laptop, but want to keep my data on a RAID system on the network.

I can't find any way of telling Outlook2010 to locate my data files, (I think there are three of them), into another file location.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

I don't know much about raid BUT there is a Microsoft addin for Outlook 2010 called Outlook Backup Addin that will automatically create a backup of your Outlook files in any location you want at whatever frequency you set it for.

Many Thanks Pine Man,

I had a look around and couldn't find something that caught my imagination. I will keep my mind open for future Add In opportunities though!

Woolwell. I followed your link and, although it states that it doesn't support Network drives, it was quite happy to work with my Mapped RAID system.

So, I think, that with your help, I am there

Thank you ... both of you, for your time and assistance.
