Outlook occasionally takes over hard drive for 1 minute and almost hangs system.
Posted on 2004-08-03
About every 30 minutes or so, Outlook 2002 temporarily hangs for about a minute. It also slows down other applications considerably. When this happens, the hard drive activity light is on solidly (which means the disk is working hard). This problem occurs if Outlook is not open.
I have a fairly large outlook .pst file (I think it's close to 1Gig). Believe it or now, however, I do archive about once a week.
I am running Windows XP Pro.
