Automatically copy "Outlook.pst" file from a shared folder
Posted on 2004-09-13
Everytime I turn on my laptop, I would like it to automatically copy my "Outlook.pst" file from a shared folder on my desktop. (My desktop is always on, and is on the same network.)
I am sharing the same "Outlook.pst" file between the two computers.
Previously, I simply changed the pst location setting (in Outlook) on my laptop to the networked drive on my desktop. It worked great.
However, I've never been able to synchronize the data with my PDA, since my PDA will only look at the default location for the pst file. (It's a linux pda that I synch with my laptop.)
FYI: I keep my Outlook.pst file pretty small (no email, limited appointments) so I'm not concerned with the time it would take to copy the entire file.
