Outlook 2000 (Deleting Personal Folders)
Posted on 1999-11-01
I upgraded from Outlook 98 to Outlook 2000 on Win95. I installed it on my D:/ Drive because of space required on my C:/ Drive. Prior to the upgrade, I made a backup copy of my entire Folder from Outlook Today. Whenever I launch Outlook now, it asks me to either create a new Personal PST or open an existing one. When I tell it to open an existing one, I am told that it is locked by another application.
I finally told the system to Create a new one. Then I go to the Import tool to get my backed up version. I am fine until I reboot. I am again asked to Create a new one or Open an existing one. I not only imported the backed up version, but I also imported the one that was being used by Outlook 98. When I was looking at the newly created folders, I have two other sets of personal folders. The first one pointing to the backup.pst and the other pointing to the outlook.pst.
Is the root of my problems because I chose to install Office 2000 on my D:/ drive. I finally tried to uninstall Outlook Express 5 because I thought that it may be getting in the way, but now everything is messed up. I would like to know where outlook get's it's information (INI) to tell it how to run. Also, how would one delete these PST files? There may be more questions coming too, once these first few get answered.
Thanx in advance
