Hello
I have a user who saved his archive folder to a CD, then copied it back to his Temp folder on his harddrive.  When he tries to open it now, he recieves a message saying "the properties for this folder are not defined.  Properties must be defined before this folder can be opened"

WHy?
How do we open it?

Thanks a bunch,

Remove the read-only attribute.

To expand, when you copy it to CD, it becomes read-only.  It retains that attribute when you copy it back to disk.  Outlook can't access it if it is read-only, so right-click the PST and uncheck read-only.
