I would like to know if there is a tool available in the market which allows you to continue working with your Outlook, while compacting your personal folders. At the moment when you compact your .pst files, with the inbuilt tool from MS, you cannnot carry on using outlook. This wastes a lot of my users time. Thanks in advance for your answers. Zappie

Sorry to report this, but no.  It is the built-in tool or nothing.  MS holds PST file layout information is undocumented and propriatery.

It's also kinda like trying to add and remove programs from a harddisk while you are in the process of defragging it.

I don't believe the question should be deleted since the comments accurately answers the posters question.  The experts that volunteer their time are worth the points even when one reports that it isn't possible to do what your asking.

Just my $.02
